The Destination Imagination program encourages teams of learners to have fun, take risks, focus and frame challenges while incorporating STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), the arts and service learning. Our participants learn patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and their ideas, and the collaborative problem solving process. Teams may showcase their solutions at a tournament.
Below you will find links with more information about forming a team. This program is open to all school age children.

Gordon-Barbour HistoryThe Gordonsville Female Institute was actually the first school built on the same site as the present facility; it was constructed in 1878 and was a girls' school. Orange County bought the building in 1910 and converted it in to a public school in 1914.
Originally known as Gordonsville High School, it housed both secondary and elementary school students. In 1952, the high school students were moved to Orange County High School and Gordonsville Elementary School served students in grades one through seven.
In 1965, that structure was razed and the present building was constructed; the elementary schools at Gordonsville and Barboursville were combined to form Gordon-Barbour Elementary School.
