Barnstable United Elementary School is a public elementary school located in Marstons Mills, Massachusetts. It currently houses grades 4 and 5 for the town of Barnstable. The school is operated by the Barnstable Public School District.

History[edit]

Middle School[edit]

From 1992 until 2003, Barnstable Middle School, located in the village of Marstons Mills, housed grades 6 through 8. After the closing of the town's fifth grade building, the Marstons Mills Middle School recombined with Barnstable Middle School at Hyannis in Hyannis.

Horace Mann School[edit]

In 2003, with the cost of upkeeping the old Horace Mann building rising, the Barnstable School Committee voted to close the school and reorganize the district. The building that housed BMS@MM was then converted to Barnstable Horace Mann Charter School(BHMCS), with students in grades 5 and 6. Students in grades 7 and 8 attend Barnstable Middle School (Formerly Barnstable Middle School at Hyannis). In 2008, with the district facing a 5 million dollar deficit, it was voted to close three elementary schools and move the fourth grade students into the school. This involves moving the 6th graders into the Barnstable Middle School.

Its name incorporated that of the famous education advocate Horace Mann. This is followed in the operation of the school which was run by a board of trustees and was more oriented to student education than other schools.

United Elementary School[edit]

In 2012, the school's board decided to dissolve, and the school was renamed to its current name.
