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.
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.
Innovation in Students and Faculty
Our goal is to develop a community of creative thinkers, foster a mindset of risk-taking, and enable students to adapt and succeed.
You Belong Here
Our commitment to respect for self, each other, and the environment, and diversity, equity and inclusion come together to create a community where everyone can feel a deep sense of belonging.
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.
