As a Barrington HIgh School Graduate and parent of one of the very few BCHS students to not graduate I am surprised to see that none of these reviews mention the alcohol and narcotics problems that plague the school and the teen suicides.

I must address a comment made by a parent on this site. The parent said that Barrington High School must address their test scores. None of the high schools ranked above Barrington High School in Illinois have the large number of children from low income families and so many non-English speaking students. ...  Read more

BHS is a rigorous but friendy college prepartory environment. It seems like every year they make improvements with technology, course offerings (Chinese) and national awards that the school has received.
