Uniquely Accomplished

Academic Program

Barrington Elementary School offers our K-5 academic program and the alternative progressive / informal program. Both programs are rooted in the vital components of a strong elementary education such as literacy and math. 

Elementary Explorations

Our innovative Elementary Explorations program excites and engages K-5 students districtwide in cross-curricular projects that include topics on STEM, art and design, robotics, literacy and well-being.

Network of Support

Our elementary school counselors collaboratively work with teachers, support staff, administrators and families to support the needs of all students and help them become successful lifelong learners and problem solvers.

Environment for Success

Part of the first phase of our community-developed master plan, the new and modern learning spaces at Barrington Elementary School are supporting our students as they develop the skills necessary to serve, lead and succeed.
