Barkley Information


Welcome To Barkley!

Hello all,

Welcome to Barkley Elementary School! We are a 21st century school! Barkley is a “state of the art school” in terms of our building and classroom design, as well as our technology. Our school is a green ribbon school and utilizes solar panels, water capture and geothermal heating and air. The building is wireless with at least one computer for every two students. Smartboards are also accessible to students throughout the school. Each classroom studio is beautiful and open in order for teachers and students to work collaboratively with attention to the needs of individual students.

Barkley offers a multiplicity of services for our students. From Special Education (SPED), to Gifted Education (GE), art, music, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), Elementary Spanish (FLES) as well as after school activities for students, we’ve got something for everyone. We have counseling services, speech services, physical and occupational therapy services for our students as well.

We are proud that we serve the students of the United States military living on Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Our students’ safety and education are primary for those of us that get to work here and our parents know their kids are in good hands at Barkley Elementary School. . We invite you to explore our website or better yet, visit our school. We know you will love it.

If you have any questions we can be reached at 270-640-1205. You may also contact me at .


Don’t be a stranger!
