Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Diversity is one of Barrie School's fundamental core values. We honor and celebrate the uniqueness of each individual and embrace each person’s beliefs, experiences, values, and perspectives in support of our inclusive and welcoming community. Barrie School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, or a person's status as a qualified candidate with a disability in administration of its educational program, admission policies, financial aid program, staff hiring and other school-administered programs.
Barrie’s student body reflects the cultural and economic diversity of our region. Many students live in Silver Spring and surrounding communities, while others commute from Washington DC to the south and various neighborhoods throughout the greater DC area.
