It is located at 901 Classon Avenue, across from Prospect Heights High School and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The school is named for Clara Barton, an American teacher, nurse, and humanitarian. Like all New York City public schools, Clara Barton High School is operated by the New York City Department of Education.

Many accelerated courses are offered including advanced placement courses such as A.P. Biology, A.P. English, and A.P. United States History.

Up until the 1990s, it was known as Clara Barton H.S. for Health Professions. During that time, Health Professions was the only choice of study. Clara Barton H.S. had a wonderful Co-op Program, which allowed seniors in certain career fields, to work a week and go to school for a week. The school does not have an athletic field of its own but students do play sports on the Prospect High field.

Clara Barton High School has an array of health profession programs including: Licensed Practical Nursing, Medical Assisting, Nursing Assisting, Dental Lab, Dental Assisting and Visual Technology.
