BARRINGTON MIDDLE SCHOOL GALLERY
Barrington Middle School
A new 850 student, $68.4 million middle school that features modern science labs, a full auditorium with a performance stage, visual arts rooms and fitness facilities. The 142,500 square-foot-building was constructed on the playing fields adjacent to the existing middle school, which was subsequently demolished after construction of the new school, and the area turned into new outdoor recreation space.
From the foyer to the third floor, natural light pours into the new school through insulated windows and beautifully designed areas full of natural daylight. Ceilings are 10ft tall on average with a soaring media center and professional theater. The new BMS school also includes plenty of “maker’s space” for hands-on projects, electronic whiteboards in every classroom, security upgrades and a fire system linked directly to the fire station.
