It is easily to feel involved and connected in this community. Although the Barrington Area is large, you don't lose that neighborhood feel. Barrington High School is at the center of our community, and people of all ages part-take in Broncos Pride. After moving here from another area, Barrington cannot compare. Its a perfect place to raise a child. It is extremely safe and the people here are so kind. The schools are fantastic and offer many opportunities to its students.
A great place to raise a family. Great schools and every thing you need conveniently located. Lots of dining options and plenty of options for shopping.
