Barrington Community Unit School District No. 220 Reviews
District 220 is a good district. I am a student at Barrington High School, and I can confidently say that this district is a wonderful district to be in. At BHS, there are many opportunities for students! Many courses (from regular to AP) to choose from and activities to join in school. The teachers will help you as long as you reach out to them. Also, the school library at BHS is incredible. It's a great environment to study and do homework. This year, BHS has really emphasized safety and I can truly say I do feel more safe than I have over the years at BHS. District 220 is doing a wonderful job at building up their schools.
Barrington is a wonderful town, filled with incredible opportunities that come from the passion of those who live here and want to make their children's educational experience truly special. I am so grateful to have such wonderful teachers and opportunities. My only criticism of Barrington would be that we do not get the chance to pause and reflect about how lucky we are. Barrington has state of the art facilities, a rigorous academic program that can be suited to personal taste, a massive range of activities to participate in, and wonderful, dedicated staff. Barrington also enables those meeting minimal Highschool requirements to attend Harper College in Illinois for free, and has major connections to internships. Go, Broncos!
Typical school environment in an affluent area - lots of entitlement, clicks, and exclusion. Most teachers are OK but there are a few who are less than marginal and lazy. Would I choose to attend here again - NO!
