Beware incoming kindergarteners! Chinese Immersion will be starting at NBS 2014/2015 and 2015/2016.

North Barrington, as evidenced by the overwhelming community approval, middle- and high school preparedness and test scores, is an outstanding school. My daughter has attended schools in nationally ranked districts outside of Illinois and NBS is on par with those schools in terms of opportunities, services ...  Read more
