Barton Hills is only one of a handful of Austin ISD elementary schools offering a 6th grade. Our 6th grade offers a small community with big opportunities. Our 6th grade is led by Collins Van Nort (aka Mr. V). Every Friday, our 6th graders let nature be their classroom, spending 2 hours working and learning in the Greenbelt.
Recently, Mr. Van Nort won a John F. Ahrns Award for his work introducing students to the wonder of the outdoors.
For more information, see our Sixth Grade Brochure for more information.
