From Mrs. Wordell, Principal of Fort Barton Elementary School

Welcome to Fort Barton School, a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and a 7-time Commended School by the RI Department of Education. 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 and help to prepare each child as a 21st century learner through authentic, hands-on, high quality learning experiences that help students reach world class standards.  We do this daily through offering rich, high quality and rigorous curriculum and instruction, then individualizing student experiences through tiered supports for students needing additional assistance or enrichment.  As part of the Tiverton community since 1936, we offer class and school celebrations, strong and frequent parent-school communication, parent volunteer opportunities, 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!
