A Message from Dr. Jones:
I am humbled and elated to reopen Barton Academy to the students of Mobile County. Barton Academy for Advanced World Studies will serve as a model of exemplary modern educational practices. Our "Barton Explorers" will engage in project-based learning which is a curricular approach that is driven by student questioning, exploration, critical-thinking, and problem-solving. Students will be provided a wealth of educational experiences and advanced course options with a central theme of global studies, fine arts, and entrepreneurship. I am passionate about creating an educational environment that teaches students to own their learning, encourages creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking, and values diversity. I am excited to begin this new adventure and cannot wait to welcome our first class of new students in August, 2021!
If you are an interested parent, student, teacher/staff member, or community leader who wants to know more about how YOU can become a part of Barton's rich history and future, please feel free to contact me. The easiest way to reach me is via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
