About Us

  • bumper

    Barnette Elementary School is located in Huntersville, North Carolina as part of the Northwest Learning Community in Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District.  We presently serve 706 students in pre-K through fifth grade and have 81 staff members.

    Our school is named in honor of B. Alexander Barnette, Sr., a life-long resident of Huntersville.  His land ownership included a parcel that was granted from the King of England before the Revolutionary War.  His lineage can be traced back to the locally historical Alexander and Davidson families.  A Bear is our mascot with the noble characteristics of being strong, brave and independent. Our school colors are blue, red, and white.

    A positive attitude is essential for an effective learning community.

    Students learn best in a nurturing environment where individual learning styles are supported through differentiation of instruction.
