Barrington Middle School-Prairie Campus is one of two middle schools in the Barrington 220 School District. Prairie Campus opened in 1992 along the southern border of Barrington. When it came to naming the school, many community members commented on how the plot of land looked like a savannah. Savannah almost became the building’s given name, until a Board of Education member noted the land was actually a prairie. The halls, walls and staff have embraced learners for more than 30 years and today Prairie Campus is known for its excellence in education, innovative programs and supportive community.
