Welcome to Barrington High School PTO

The purpose of the Parent Teacher Organization of Barrington High School is to offer programs and services that foster communication between home and school in many ways including our monthly newsletters, production of the student directory, our MorningLine Programs, Staff Grants and Academic Boosters.  The best way for you to find out more is to come join us and attend our monthly meetings. 
We look forward to seeing you!
