Welcome to Barton Elementary!

  • Barton Elementary School is located on the west side of Detroit at 8530 Joy Rd. Detroit, Michigan. 48204. Barton was reopened to reduce the class size at Mackenzie Elementary-Middle School. Our projected enrollment is 150 students, with 25 students in each K-5 setting. We will utilize the same curriculum that the district is using, Expeditionary Learning, and Eureka Math. Although we are in the middle of a pandemic and are servicing a combination of face to face learning, learning centers, and online learning, we are offering the following programs: Barton Morning Announcements, Townhall Meetings, Junior Cadet, Expect Respect and Character Trait Education, Daily Celebrations, High Expectation B.A.R.T.O.N. Student Recognition,  PBIS, Barton School Store, Barton Bear Paws Incentives, Honors Assemblies, Movie Day, Calm Classroom, Girls & Boys Mentoring, Student of the Month, and Friday Showcase.
