From Mrs. Wordell, Principal of Fort Barton Elementary School

Welcome to Fort Barton School, a 2014 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and a 4-time Commended School by the RI Department of Education (the highest state ranking, and one of two schools in RI to achieve 4-time Commended status)!  My name is Suzette Wordell, and I am proud to be the principal of Fort Barton School since the summer of 2000.

At Fort Barton School, we value every child as an individual learner.  We strive daily to help each child meet their potential through individualizing instruction, class and school celebrations, strong and frequent parent-school communication, a safe school environment, and an active and free PTO – which is open to all families.

All Tiverton Elementary Schools use the same curriculum, which can be found on the district curriculum web page.  If you would like to visit our school, or find out more information, you can feel free to email me at, or call at 401-624-6114.  I look forward to becoming partners with you in your child’s elementary educational journey!
