Barnesville School Names New Head

February 23, 2016

The Board of Trustees of Barnesville School of Arts & Sciences unanimously approved the appointment of Susanne Johnson as Head of School. Johnson has been serving as Interim Head since July 2015, and she previously served as the School’s Director of Institutional Advancement.

   At Barnesville’s annual Board-Parent gathering, Board Chair, Jeff Donohoe said, “Susanne continues to do a tremendous job leading the School. She has earned the trust, admiration, and confidence of the entire community, and we believe there is no one more qualified and committed to leading Barnesville forward.”

   Donohoe credited Johnson and her leadership team with instituting new cross-curricular programs, bolstering advancement and enrollment efforts, and strengthening financial controls, all while leading the day-to-day efforts of Barnesville’s extraordinary faculty and staff. 

   “The School’s mission of joy, support, and excellence continues to serve as my leadership compass,” said Johnson. “It guides our program, defines our culture, and is the essence of a Barnesville education. It is an honor and privilege to work every day to fulfill that mission.”

   With fifteen years of private sector sales and marketing management experience, Johnson has a proven track record of developing and directing top-performing teams. At Barnesville, Johnson progressed from Director of Admissions to Director of Institutional Advancement, where she has led successful Annual Fund campaigns, exceeding fundraising goals and increasing participation rates each year. Prior to her employment at Barnesville, Johnson served as a leader in nearly every volunteer capacity at the School, including Board of Trustees Secretary, Annual Fund Chair, Gala Chair, and Chair of the Jaralyn Hough Fund Campaign that raised $500,000.

   She has served as President of LAND (Landscape and Nature Discoveries), which supports environmental education, since its inception in 2006, and previously served as Treasurer of Clarksburg Chamber of Commerce Board. Johnson earned a Master of Business Administration degree from Babson College’s Franklin W. Olin Graduate School of Business and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Dartmouth College.

   Barnesville School of Arts & Sciences offers an innovative preschool through 8th grade education that integrates the humanities, arts, math, and science. Small class settings foster a culture of joy, support, and excellence. Located in the Montgomery County Agricultural Reserve, Barnesville is certified as a Maryland Green School by the Maryland Association for Environmental and Outdoor Education, demonstrating achievement in curriculum and instruction, community partnerships, and best management practices.
