Welcome to Atkinson Elementary School. Atkinson Elementary is a K-5 building with approximately 386 students. Our school consists of 4 sections of grades K-2 and 3 sections of grades 3-5. Small class sizes have been and will continue to be a priority here in Barnesville. We strive to create a safe and respectful learning environment for all students.
Our instructional program is arranged in a style to meet the needs of all students. We place a high value on student data and use it daily to drive our decisions in the area of student growth. We place a significant emphasis on technology as we are a one-to- one iPad School. You will find that in Barnesville, technology is not an extra, it is a tool in our educational process. We also offer music and physical education five days a week for students in grades 1-5.
In 2015, Atkinson Elementary was named a Rewards School in the state of Minnesota. This means we were one of the highest achieving schools with enrollments similar to ours. We have set a high standard for academic excellence, and we work hard to meet or surpass this expectation. This cannot be accomplished without the efforts of a highly qualified and caring staff. We are very proud of our team that has been assembled.
Lastly, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact teachers or myself. Parent involvement in the educational process is extremely important. By working together, we can and will accomplish great things!
