It is easily to feel involved and connected in this community. Although the Barrington Area is large, you don't lose that neighborhood feel. Barrington High School is at the center of our community, and people of all ages part-take in Broncos Pride. After moving here from another area, Barrington cannot compare. Its a perfect place to raise a child. It is extremely safe and the people here are so kind. The schools are fantastic and offer many opportunities to its students.

There is minimal crime in this area. Once in a while you will hear about something that happened by accident, but there has not been a violent crime here in a long time. It is safe to walk around the streets at night.

I love this area. Close enough to the train to be able to take advantage of the city. Great conservation areas that I enjoy using with my family. Close enough to the country, it's the best of both worlds.
