WE ARE Clara Barton!

Clara Barton Elementary School, home of the Eagles, is a learning community committed to providing all children a top quality educational program. Our school encourages each student to achieve his or her highest academic and social potential through actively engaging classroom instruction and character education initiatives. Our school's enrollment ranges from approximately 475-500 students in grades K-5.

Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is very active at Clara Barton Elementary School. The PTA sponsors a number of enriching activities for the students and staff. They provide financial support as well as family sponsored social activities for our children.

At Barton, school spirit can be felt the moment you enter our campus. Our goal is to create fun, memorable learning experiences for all students, while instilling in them a sense of pride in their school and community. WE ARE Clara Barton!

Student Voice
Student Voice

Each month Mr. Sweeney meets with a group of nominated students for what he refers to as an Eagle's Nest meeting. The primary focus of these meetings is to provide students the opportunity to have their voice heard specific to a school-related topic. Something new I'm trying this year is to extend the discussion beyond the Eagle's Nest and give all students at Barton the chance to be heard. Any Barton student can record a short video clip of themselves answering our monthly Eagle's Nest question.
