The staff at Barton Junior High, home of the Wildkittens, would like to welcome all of our students! We are happy to have you on our campus and excited about the opportunities of this school year!

The Barton curriculum, activities, and procedures are designed to develop strong academic, behavior, and character traits--all intended to prepare students for EHS and the career and college worlds awaiting our students. We believe junior high is a time for students to try many activities; therefore, our electives range from a variety of arts including band, choir, visual art, and orchestra; physical activities consisting of boys’ and girls’ athletics, boys' and girls’ conditioning, cheerleading, baseball, archery and P.E., and academically oriented courses such as Robotics, Stitch and Steam, Barton Bakes and Garden Gurus. Our core courses include math, science, English, and social studies and advanced math, science, English, and social studies. We also offer Algebra I and Physical Science for high school credit. In addition, students may participate in student government and teacher-sponsored clubs.

Junior high can be a difficult time for adolescents. Navigating this time in their lives when they are no longer a child, but not yet an adult presents certain challenges. We have developed a social-emotional learning curriculum to help them grow during this time period. Our staff loves this age of students and enjoys watching them learn, grow, and mature. We believe this is an especially important time to help students develop personal responsibility. Parents are still able to log into HAC to check grades, and students are provided with a planner to record due dates for assignments and tests. We do not send home a weekly folder. Classes will use Google Classroom and most teachers use a Remind account to help inform students and parents of due dates and class news.

We are excited about this school year and cannot wait for all the activities around school. As our cheerleaders ask at games and pep assemblies, “Are you proud to be a Wildkitten?" YES, WE ARE!!!
