Welcome to Barkers Mill Elementary, home of the Bobcats. We are located in northern Clarksville with a staff and faculty that work together to promote a caring learning environment for all students.

Educational Philosophy
Barkers Mill Elementary School provides opportunities for all students to make responsible choices for becoming successful citizens. School personnel and parents as partners will meet individual student needs by fostering positive self-concepts, appropriate social skills, and academic knowledge. We believe that literacy is the key that begins a pattern of lifelong learning by building minds one book at a time. We strive to offer an educational program that will support, encourage, and challenge all students.

Barkers Mill Elementary opened in Fall 2006 with Mrs. Rhonda Kennedy as principal and Mrs. Frances Ann Camp as assistant principal. In the 2008-09 school year, Mr. Andy Lyons joined the administrative team as assistant principal after the departure of Mrs. Camp. Because of the growth of north Clarksville, five additional instructional positions were added during the 2010-11 school year along with an additional half-time assistant principal. Continued growth led to two additional teachers being added mid-year, and the second assistant principal position was made full-time in January 2011.

Following the appointment of Mr. Lyons as principal of another school, Mrs. Melody Nix joined the Barkers Mill administrative team for the 2011-12 school year.
