Learning that Lasts

Active Learning is foundational to Barrie School’s approach to education. It is the common ground between Montessori and Project Based Learning and—we believe—key to excellence and cultivating a love of learning.

Academic Excellence

We believe that active participation is fed by intrinsic motivation, and that the key to academic excellence is unlocking the self-motivation that every learner has inside.

Find Your Voice

Empowering students to find their voice is central to Barrie School’s educational philosophy. From Day #1, our students learn not only the power of their voices, but the responsibility and accountability inherent in using them.
