Barry School EntranceWelcome to Barry School! We are a unique elementary and middle school serving fifth through eighth grade students in the southern attendance area of Platte County School District. Our original building first opened in 1974, and since then has received multiple additions, expansions, and renovations throughout the 1990s and 2000s.

We are #BarryProud to "Learn. Grow. Lead." along side our students and prepare our learners for success in life. To enhance and broaden PCR-3's character education efforts, Barry School launched the CharacterStrong program in our building beginning with the 2020-21 school year.
