Barton Secondary School closed June, 2014 along with another nearby secondary school, Hill Park Secondary. Students from Hill Park joined former Barton students at a new school-Nora Frances Henderson Secondary.
Staff at Barton Secondary School accessed expertise within the school and board, and worked together to identify and address the needs of their students. In the classrooms featured below, content is relevant and authentic, and instruction is engaging. Using exciting, gamified technology to engage students in the curriculum was an effective strategy for increasing student success at Barton Secondary School. The following artefacts were generously contributed by the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board.
