Barcroft's unique exemplary school project, the Leonardo da Vinci Project, is modeled after Leonardo da Vinci's thinking habits. Like Leonardo, Barcroft students combine creative and scientific thought throughout their learning experiences and are challenged with focused thinking and problem-solving activities. This highly regarded exemplary school project provides students with explorations of their academic studies through interdisciplinary thematic units. The arts and writing become 'real events' for sharing and publication.
Barcroft also offers students in kindergarten through fifth grade a proficiency-oriented Spanish language program. Students receive a minimum of 90 minutes of Spanish instruction per week and enjoy a full day of school every day of the week.
Barcroft Elementary School is the only Arlington school that follows a modified school year calendar. This calendar balances the school year and provides continuous learning opportunities for all. Summer learning losses are reduced due to the shorter summer break. Each quarter is followed by either a two-week Intersession or break during the school year to provide continuous learning cycles.
