Newell Barney College Prep

Queen Creek Unified School District continues to grow! We are excited to announce that beginning with the 2024–25 school year, QCUSD will transition from Newell Barney Junior High to Newell Barney College Prep, a “school of choice.”  Seventh and eighth grade students who love learning and being challenged in the classroom will now have the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in honors and accelerated coursework at Newell Barney College Preparatory School. Enrolling in this school of choice empowers you to craft a personalized learning experience that resonates with your child's unique qualities and interests!
