About Barrie School

Our extraordinary environment for learning serves students from age 12 months - Grade 5 in our Lower School Montessori program, and Grades 6-12 in our Project Based Learning program. Barrie students are encouraged to develop their own individual interests and talents through hands-on, experiential learning.

Barrie School is conveniently located minutes away from the nation’s capital, the ICC, and Glenmont Metro subway station, and provide several transportation options.

Barrie offers a Sibling Discount.  The eldest child pays full tuition, the second, younger, child receives a 5% discount, and a 10% discount is received on all other children thereafter. This is separate program from Financial Aid.

Example, 4 siblings are enrolled in grades 10, 8, 5, and 1.  10th grader pays full tuition, 8th grader receives a 5% discount, and the 5th and 1st graders receive a 10% discount.
