Parents of students entering 12th grade: Please be aware that Ohio law now requires students entering their senior year of high school to have record of a Meningitis vaccine given after the age of 16 on file at school.

To be eligible you must be a current BHS senior and you must want to explore the world outside of North America. You do not need to participate in a study abroad program to qualify.

Parent Donation for PLTW/CFOV
The Barnesville Exempted Village School District’s goal is to prepare students for the global economy. To do this, the district has implemented the Project Lead the Way STEM program in both the middle school and high school. At the middle school, students have the opportunity to take Design & Modeling and Automation & Robotics. At the high school, students may take Introduction to Engineering Design. The district plans to offer more Project Lead the Way STEM classes in future school years.
To help meet this goal, the Barnesville Exempted Village School District formed an alliance with the Community Foundation for the Ohio Valley through the Smith Goshen Rice Enrichment Fund. The purpose of this partnership is to create a school district of excellence, offering STEM programming to our students. In order to accomplish this goal, the district has established a multi-phase plan.
The costs of implementing and expanding the Project Lead the Way course offerings include teacher training and related expenses, annual program registration fee, course supplies, and computer purchases. This plan will help to ensure that the school district stays focused on the goal of expanding STEM curriculum for students.
