Two years ago, Barstow Unified School District (BUSD) broke ground for Barstow Fine Arts Academy, the second magnet school in their district. It followed shortly after Barstow STEM Academy, which opened in 2014 and established the district’s goal to open magnet schools that enrich the community. A fine arts academy was the clear next step to inspire creativity and artistic expression in the community.
This year at the CSBA Trade Show, we asked participants to help us discover shared values for quality education in California by taking part in the creation of a data map. Through this visual language, they shared what they valued in delivering quality education to students.
The state-of-the-art facility is from public dollars, for public use, and another milestone for Beaumont Unified School District. Thanks to Measure Z funds, 836 students are able to attend this vibrant school and fill the seats of 38 active learning classrooms.
The goal of this project was twofold – to provide a higher level of security and safety for the
school and to transform the space, bringing inspiration, creativity, and new life to a building
overshadowed by tragedy.
