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!

I love the Barrington community because of the school support and spirit that is spread throughout. I grew up in this district and some of my favorite memories have been created thanks to the wonderful staff and students that have helped me with my journey since kindergarten. I am excited to graduate, but sad to have to leave the place where I have grown as an individual. I know where to go to when I need help or if I just want to have a conversation with someone. The school is more than a place to learn, it is a place for everyone to figure out who they are as it is a welcoming and safe place for all!
At Barrington High School, I was able to meet students I've never seen before, further, old friends from elementary school and friends since middle school. Though the high school was intimidating for the first few months, with the help of these friends and the upperclassmen from the tennis team and after-school activity club members, I was able to feel more welcome at the school. There were many activities to choose from as well, such as the summer read program and assemblies to commemorate students' achievements. This helped the school bond together, and meet students from other grades. Following the activities, the extraordinary number of classes and types of classes were enjoyable to choose. There were classes ranging from folk and myth to present-day computer sciences. Overall, Barrington High School is a wonderful school with many upperclassmen, teachers as well, who are willing to help students to feel comfortable and safe.
