From the Principal

These past six months, I’ve had the opportunity to work with a school community that lives up to this kind of mission for students.  I’ve had the help and support of Barton’s caring and amazing teachers.  I’ve benefitted from the insight and compassion of involved parents, and I have continued to realize how humbled and privileged I am to work with Barton’s dedicated, diverse learning community.

This social learning continues.  Our ongoing Coffee with the Principal sessions, Leadership Council meetings, and school tours provide additional opportunities for our extended community to reflect upon our shared practice of Open and Progressive education.

I look forward to meeting with many of you during our next Coffee with the Principal sessions  this December 11th, at 8:00 AM here at Barton.
