The Barrie School
13500 Layhill Rd, Silver Spring, MD 20906
The school is located on a wooded, 45-acre campus just north of Washington, DC. At all grade levels, the experiential program provides opportunities to explore individual interests. Barrie's lower school (grades pre-K-5) employs a Montessori approach that emphasizes the development of fundamental academic skills and problem-solving strategies. In addition to course requirements in humanities, math, science, foreign language, art and physical education, the middle and upper school programs (grades 6-12) include community service (96 cumulative hours prior to graduation), special on- and off-campus study opportunities, and athletics. Barrie also conducts Extended Study Week, an intensive, experiential program that enables students to explore material beyond the standard curriculum through local, national or international study.
