I used to teach at Barrie almost 20 years ago. I enjoyed my time there. The campus was great.

My child is in middle school and we find the program to be excellent. The small class sizes and focus on critical thinking are extraordinary. Also the school emphasizes working with different learning styles, which makes it far more flexible than the public schools. We will be continuing through high school here.

This school has recently been through a rough period of change, but it is emerging as an amazing place to be and learn. Over my four years at Barrie, I had some hard times, but overall, I had a lot of fun, and wish I could go back.
