BHS is a very good school academic-wise! Although, it seems to be a school in which it funds certain clubs/activities over others. It also isn't quite diverse, which influences certain individuals to have a negative attitude towards those who aren't the white majority, which is very discouraging to witness. Other than this, the academics prepare students very well for college!

I graduated from Barrington High School in 2016. This high school prepared me extremely well for college! However, there is a lack of diversity at the school. It is easy to feel alone as a minority.
My overall experience so far at BHS has been great. I have met so many new people and the upperclassmen make me feel really welcomed and part of the school. The upperclassmen are extremely encouraging. all of them are nice, helpful, fun, and enthusiastic. I have been challenged this year with an AP class, but my teacher makes the journey a bit easier and I am learning how to be prepared for my future this way. The clubs and sports are great and BHS offers SO MANY. I loved this so I could try to get involved and try out different activities that interest me. One wish I have for the future of BHS is for it to have more color and school spirit. Right now, majority of the kids are involved in activities, but not enough and it would be great to encourage more students to get involved to grow the BHS community, love, and support for each other during high school!
