This emerging city is a wonderful place in which to raise a family, as it continues to build infrastructure and establish itself as one of the liveliest cities in the province. In Barrie, you and your family will live close to beautiful Lake Simcoe and an expansive waterfront that will help your kids stay active during the year's warm seasons. Moreover, you will be close to Kempenfelt Bay, resplendent with a plethora of restaurants and places for activities. Indeed, Barrie is ideal for energetic children and teenagers.

Most importantly, however, Barrie's private schools will provide your child with the greatest chance to succeed. While it offers some really good public schools, the city's private schools present numerous unique advantages.
