The student: teacher ratio of 15:1 is equal to the Maryland state level of 15:1. The teacher population of 37 teachers has stayed relatively flat over five school years.

From Principal Michelle Ward: Melissa Stuart is the person everyone wants on their team. She is hard-working, caring, and fun-loving. She completes multiple tasks at a time without blinking an eye and remains calm under pressure. Ms. Stuart’s greatest love are our students.

She gives smiles, hugs, and high fives to ALL who need them. She celebrates every accomplishment like it’s an Olympic gold medal, even if it’s just learning to tie shoes, losing a first tooth, or reading a book all by yourself. Ms. Stuart is our greatest asset.

Congratulations on being selected as the Educational Support Professional for Barstow.
