Barrington 220 School District
An update from Barrington 220: May 30, 2019
The district acquired the building from Pepsico, which it most recently used as a facility for Gatorade. It is nearly double the size of Barrington 220’s former district office at 310 James Street. This additional space provides many benefits, including the ability to house all district level staff in the new building, which will free up space in our schools for additional educational needs.

Veronica Roth visits BMS-Prairie
The Catlow, the former Baloney's Sandwich Shop and the historic homes are three of Veronica Roth's favorite things about Barrington. On Friday, May 10 the New York Times bestselling author and 2006 BHS graduate returned home to Barrington, to hold a nationwide live stream from her middle school alma mater, BMS-Prairie. "Curiosity is hands-down the best quality you can have if you want to be a writer," Roth told students during the live stream.
Roth is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Divergent Series (Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant, and Four: A Divergent Collection) and the Carve the Mark series (Carve the Mark, The Fates Divide). Her short stories and essays have appeared in the anthologies Summer Days and Summer Nights, Shards and Ashes, and Three Sides of a Heart. The Divergent Series was developed into three major motion pictures. After graduating from BHS, she attended Northwestern University. Click here to watch a short video of her visit.
