Barnwell High School’s Class of 2016 started a new tradition of wearing their caps and gowns while walking the halls of Barnwell Primary School. Each year, educators work hard to equip thousands of Barnwell County students with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful, productive members of society. A majority of students go to one of the county’s three public school districts – Barnwell District 45, Barnwell District 19 (Blackville-Hilda Public Schools) and Williston District 29. Parents looking for other options have Jefferson Davis Academy in Blackville. The private school, which is the home of the “Raiders” and recently celebrated 50 years, serves students of all grade levels. A number of families also homeschool their children. District 45 is the home of the “Warhorses” and is the largest of the three districts, serving approximately 2,500 students from Barnwell, Kline and Snelling communities. District 19 takes flight as the “Hawks”, guiding nearly 700 students from Blackville and Hilda communities. District 29’s “Blue Devils” includes more than 900 students from Williston and Elko. The school districts work individually to serve their local students but also cooperatively to offer more services while sharing the cost. The three districts also share use of the Barnwell County Career Center, which was established in 1969 on a 160-acre site on Reynolds Road near Blackville. The career center offers more than 300
