Student Life

Students in stairwell

At Barrack, everyone belongs.

We’re a true community where 6th graders are perfectly comfortable interacting with upper school seniors. Jewish Studies teachers invite their classes over for Shabbat dinner. Classmates go out of their way to support their friends in times of need.   

Beyond the classroom, our students have so many ways to connect with their interests and their peers—from clubs, publications, and student government to experiential learning, sports teams that are competitive but welcoming with a no-cut policy, and so much more. We even encourage our students to create their own clubs focused on passions they want to explore and share.

What is it like to be a student at Barrack?

Hear from Sammy Katzen '24, creator and co-host of Barrack Broadcasting Network, as she and co-host Jack Kelsen '24 give an inside look at Barrack, including interviewing students on everything from advice for new students to holiday plans.

Sammy shares, "I started Barrack Broadcasting Network not only for my love for journalism and performing but for the purpose of having our community connect with one another. Communication is a passion of mine and my hope is to inspire others to speak their truth. My videos are also a creative outlet in which to create art that is important and meaningful to me.” 

What are our students up to?

    At Barrack, we learn more than academics. We learn how to live.
