The Barrie Difference
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.
A Deep Sense of Belonging
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.
Student Voice & Responsibility
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.
