Why Newell Barney Junior High School?

Welcome to Newell Barney Junior High School, located northeast of Sossaman and Riggs Road in the beautiful San Tan Valley, just an hour away from metropolitan Phoenix. We are a 7th 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 Junior High School opened July 28, 2008, with over 400 6th and 7th graders. Today we are a thriving and energetic junior high school that serves students in the 7th and 8th grades.

We divide our class day into seven periods: language arts, math, science, social studies and two electives of your choice. Families who would like their child to enter the honors program have the opportunity to take honors science, social studies, math and/or language arts. During the eighth grade year a student can earn high school credit by taking Spanish I or Algebra I if they score an overage 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!
