Bolting Toward Success

  • Barrington Bolts demand academic excellence—and will accept nothing less. We offer students in FishHawk and Riverview many rigorous Scholar Quest high school credit courses including Spanish, Agriculture, Algebra, Geometry and Business Technology, preparing them for high school and giving them a jump start in life. Through Electives our students can expand their middle school experience with unique options like Computer Coding, Technology and Culinary Arts, just to name a few. Our school and staff follow a Sixth Grade Structure, helping our newer Bolts adapt to this heightened academic experience, while feeling at home on our campus. Strong parent involvement and engaging student clubs—like Future Business Leaders of America, FFA and Future Career and Community Leaders—equip our Bolts with the tools they need to succeed. At Barrington, we are unapologetic about our focus on success.
