What are you talking about?!?!? Fort Barton Elementary School in Tiverton is one of the best in the area! It is a brand new school in a very beautiful location. Teachers are dedicated and helpful to the children and the parents. My son went to that school and it was a wonderful experience for him and us. Later he had to change schools because of the district lines and the other school was excellent too. Why are some people so mean? I've had to move a few times throughout my life and my children went to many different schools. I feel that my youngest is the luckiest because he has had the opportunity to go through the whole school system in Tiverton. If you want your child to succeed you have to work on it too. Elementary children need to be nurtured in school and at home, but school is where they learn how to read, think and be around others. That can get frustrating to an emotionally challenged child no matter where you live. Fort Barton School has great teachers, a caring staff, visionary principal and the high standards all parents should want for their children.

HORRIBLE! You would be better off putting your child in boot camp. It's all about the $$ with these Teachers. Elementary aged children need to be nurtured from time to time. They are little! You won't find that here. We are SO happy and Thankful to be able to move to a new community where our children run from the bus SMILING (not crying...) everyday! Stay away if you can....A lot of Tiverton residents send their children to Private Schools.....
