Why Newell Barney Middle School?

Welcome to Newell Barney Middle School, located northeast of Sossaman and Riggs Road in the beautiful San Tan Valley, just an hour away from metropolitan Phoenix. We are a 6th through 8th grade school in the Queen Creek School District. We are dedicated to providing a quality education to all students. Our community is extremely supportive of our efforts here on campus, which directly translates into student success. 

Welcome to the Home of the Buccaneers!

Newell Barney Middle School opened July 28, 2008, with over 400 6th and 7th graders. Today we are a thriving and energetic middle school that serves students in the 6th through 8th grades.

We divide our class day into seven periods: language arts, math, science, social studies, physical education, and an elective. Language arts classes are a two-hour block. We will place students who meet the requirement for honors classes in honors science, honors math, and/or honors language arts classes. Students can also earn high school credit in Spanish I and Algebra if they score an average of 75% or higher on semester tests.

We also offer many extracurricular activities for students such as athletics, mathematics, intramurals, National Junior Honor Society, Student Council, Yearbook Club, Robotics Club, Art Club, Band Club, and Drama Club. We encourage students to get involved in clubs and activities within our school. It is a great way to meet new friends and have some fun!

If you ever have a question for us or would like to tour our campus, don’t hesitate to let us know. Working with our community is always a pleasure here at Newell Barney. Welcome Home!
