Bargerton Community School
The school and village took their names from one of the early settlers and merchants, Ausburn Barger.
The present building (1940) was erected in 1921. There have been three or four other school buildings which served their turn, but did not bear the name Bargerton.
Some of the early teachers were Bill Barr, who taught at Sharon; Sid Rhodes, who taught at Meals Academy. Its present teachers are Mr. T.V. Taylor, Principal, Mrs. Glyn Phillips and Mrs. James Patton.
At the time of its erection Bargerton was set aside as a special school district by the State. The present daily attendance is 81.
