Barnesville High School, constructed in 1969 for 350 students, is crowded and does not meet the needs of the district. Expansion and renovation of the following areas were priorities: science labs, CADD/computer labs, physical-education facilities, team/dual class lecture spaces, fine-arts studios and administration office space.
