Middle School


An annual Middle School tradition, the Barrie Boat Races challenge 8th graders to work collaboratively to design, construct, and ultimately race cardboard boats in the Barrie pool.

Barrie's Middle School academic program provides opportunities for students to begin to understand themselves as learners, independent thinkers, and resourceful problem-solvers. 

While academic expectations for Middle School students are high, careful attention is given to the particular intellectual, social, and emotional needs unique to developing 11-14 year-olds. Curiosity and confidence, engagement and energy define the Middle School experience at Barrie.
