Georgia Milestones Testing

Thank you for helping all our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students successfully complete this year's Georgia Milestones testing! Students arrived to school on time, well-rested and ready to do their best! We appreciate our excellent parent support, thank you!

We expect student results back the week of May 9th.  As a reminder, students in 3rd grade are required to score at or above grade level on the Reading component, and 5th grade students are required to score at or above grade level on the Reading and at Level II or higher in Math to be promoted to the next grade. Students not meeting these requirements will be encouraged to attend Summer School from June 2nd through June 23rd and/or take the applicable Reading or Math retest (6/22-6/23).  Barnwell students will attend summer school at River Eves Elementary this summer (more information will be provided to eligible students once scores are received).

Students not meeting requirements on the original Milestones test or the summer retest will be retained, unless a parent or the school requests an appeal.  In these cases, Barnwell's Placement Committee (Principal, Assistant Principal, Curriculum Support Teacher, Counselor, Teacher) will look at each student's overall academic performance for the year to determine appropriate placement for next year.  As a general rule, students performing well academically on their report card (overall A, B, or C average) will be promoted to the next grade.

For information about Milestones testing, visit the Georgia Department of Education website here

Student Placement 2016-17

We expect all Barnwell teachers to provide a positive, nurturing and challenging environment for our students. While no teacher is perfect, all are competent professionals that will do his/her best to provide a quality education for all our children. As we begin planning classes for next year, we build classes that are based on student continuous achievement levels, balancing gender, ethnicity and special education (IRR/TAG) students.

If your child has had a prior, personal experience with a teacher that has not been successful, please email principal Martin Neuhaus directly (neuhausm@fultonschools.org) with specific information and details on your attempts to rectify the situation. All other requests, including your desire to separate your child from other students, need to be completed on the 2016-17 Student Special Need Notification Form (click here), signed and submitted to the front office before 3:00 PM on May 6th.


If you are new to our community - welcome to Barnwell! We are excited you are here and look forward to making 2016 our best year ever!

Our school begins each morning at 7:40 and afternoon dismissal begins at 2:20. Car riders may be dropped off beginning at 7:10 each morning - please know that our car pool line can be very busy between 7:30 and 7:40 so plan accordingly. Bus routes, stops and times are managed by our Transportation Department (visit their website FCS Transportation or click here for bus stop locations/times).

Please call, stop by or email us with any questions.
