The Barstow School is an independent PS-12 school in Kansas City, MO, dedicated to the symmetrical development of mind, body and character for all students.  The Creative Minds elective was created in 2016 to offer 7th and 8th grade students the opportunity to explore the inherent joys of learning by choosing independent study projects while also refining their observation skills and creative abilities with puzzles, games, design challenges and problem-solving experiences.
