I have had a great experience with Barrington High School. The teachers and general community are amazing in terms of truly engaging their students. Students of all grades are challenged both in and out of the classroom. However, this does tend to induce a high stress environment for children that take the higher level classes. The homework load that is placed on students is often very difficult to handle. Nonetheless, the college preparation and time management skills developed at Barrington High School are great.

Over all this is a good school, the kids are fake but some are chill. Some teachers you will absolutely love and some not so much, especially the blonde lady at the front desk. Idk why she’s so mean and when she realized that her life is going downhill so badly, that’s probably the reason she’s bad, imagine going to college just to work as the person who lets people in. Anyways all the other stuff is good I guess, not many other complaints.
The faculty at BHS is very nice. They actually care about their students and their jobs. They are engaging and supportive and want you to succeed. The guidance office is absolutely wonderful! They can help you with anything and everything-even nonschool related. There is a wide-range of personalities, but not any diversity. This school has a good environment and is involved in the community.
