18 MONTHS-GRADE 12
Average Class Size
Barrie, a community of learners from age 18 months through
Grade 12, empowers individual
students to expand their intellectual abilities, develop their creative
talents and discover their passions
to make a positive impact in a
rapidly changing world. Through
Barrie Montessori (age 18 months
through Grade 5) and Barrie Prep
(Grades 6-12), we emphasize
academic and personal excellence.
We nurture students who are intellectually curious, socially engaged,
and prepared to take on the challenges of college and life.
Rooted in the Montessori principle of “follow the child,” Barrie students are known and valued as
individuals. From our youngest toddlers to our seniors preparing for college, Barrie provides a developmentally appropriate balance of autonomy, responsibility and personal attention. Opportunities for
voice, advocacy and leadership increase as students mature.
Located on 45 acres in Silver Spring (just minutes from the Beltway, ICC and Glenmont Metro
station), our campus combines a natural setting of woods, trails, streams, stables and ponds with
thoughtfully designed, award-winning learning environments, performance spaces and athletics
facilities (including a new, state-of-the art turf playing field). We invite you to visit us on the web at
barrie.org, or to simply stop by campus to learn more about what Barrie has to offer.

Think differently. At The
Nora School, these are words
we take to heart. This intentionally small, college preparatory learning community works
to bring out the best in high
school students with diverse
learning styles. Many students
turn to us because they’ve
become frustrated in large,
impersonal institutions, while
others seek a richer, more
engaging education without
the emphasis on standardized
testing. In our discussion-based
classrooms, students find their
voice in an intellectually rigorous, accepting and nurturing
environment. With a thought-provoking curriculum, and inclusive sports and arts programs, The
Nora School helps students find their unique path in life. We encourage responsibility and build
confidence and excitement about learning. We inspire a critical world view. At Nora, we prepare
students for college, work and life.
We invite you to discover the essence of our school. RSVP for an Open House or call to arrange a visit. Come see how our students thrive. Celebrating the same mission for over 50 years. Think Differently.
