The Barstow School says it has received the largest donation in its history, a $7.5 million gift from an anonymous donor that will go, in part, towards building a new athletic center.

Located at 11511 State Line Road in Kansas City, Mo., the private independent school serves more than 750 children in grades pre-K through high school and draws students from Johnson County and around the metro.
