Thank you for your interest in Barrie School! Our extraordinary environment for learning serves students from age 12 months - Grade 5 in our 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.

Once you step onto our beautiful 45-acre wooded campus in Silver Spring, Maryland, you’ll experience a compelling sense of student engagement.
