• Welcome to Barnstable Community Innovation School 

    FREE Breakfast and lunch will be available to all students throughout the school year. Parents are asked to send their child to school with their Barnstable Public School District Issued device (iPad or Chromebook), a healthy snack, a water bottle, and a roomy backpack. 




    Below is a map of the arrival and dismissal traffic patterns.

    Kindergarten and Grade 1 (blue symbols on the map)

    Drivers will enter the drive at the traffic circle in front of HYCC (Hyannis Youth and Community Center). K and Grade 1 students will use the BLUE DOOR at the end of the building, closest to HYCC. 

    Grade 2 & Grade 3 (orange symbols on the map)

    Drivers will enter using the drive nearest the large playground. Grade 2 & 3 students will use the ORANGE DOOR at the back of the building.
    Older siblings will use the same door as their younger brother(s) or sister(s).

    Before and After Care (purple symbol on the map)

    The School Council is an advisory committee that works together to provide ideas and opinions to help the principal.  The School Council meets to discuss the educational needs of our students, review the school budget, and review the school’s improvement plan. The School Council members consist of our school principal, several teachers, parents, and community members. We are looking for more parents to be part of our School Council! It’s a great way to get involved and help to make our wonderful school even better! We meet once per month for one hour. If you are interested, please contact our Principal, Cathy Milne


    Have you seen our amazing garden?  We have 30 raised vegetable garden beds and a shed full of tools materials. The mission of our garden is to provide an outdoor classroom where children can work cooperatively and  learn about nature and where their  food comes from.

    The Garden Committee works with students and teachers to make learning meaningful! Our students help with:  building garden boxes, moving soil, planting seeds, weeding, watering, harvesting, and of course tasting!

    The BCIS School Garden is looking for volunteers to help– no experience needed. We are looking for Garden Committee members who can organize a team to clean up the garden, make repairs, and make the space ready for little gardeners! 

    To learn more, please contact Andrea Burnett.
