The public is invited to send submissions for a new name for Barton high school.

Public gets say in renaming Barton high school

Barton students will be attending the same school, but it will have a new name next fall.
The east Mountain high school, which will also house students transferring from Hill Park, which closes in June, is being renamed.
The new name is expected to follow the students to a new high school the Hamilton public school board says it will open in the fall of 2016. Trustees voted in June 2012 to build the new school to replace Barton and Hill Park.
The public has until Jan. 28 to submit a new name, plus rationale for it. Trustees will decide on the name in the spring. Submission can be made online at or by mail to Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board, 120 King St. West, Suite 1120.
The board says the suggested names should: reflect HWDSB’s vision, mission, commitments and community composition; provide inspiration to students; have community and district acceptance; be appropriate for the whole district; have local community, district, provincial, Canadian or international significance; address underrepresented groups.
