Arnett C. Lines Elementary is one of eight elementary schools in the Barrington 220 School District, serving grades K-5. The school mascot is the Lion. The school opened in 1969 and is named after a lifelong Barrington resident. Mr. Lines was a local historian who served on the Board of Education from 1932-1957. His father, Fred Lines, was a master carpenter who built the Barrington White House, which today serves as a historical venue for cultural and community events. It is said that Arnett C. Lines often enjoyed coming to the school that bears his name and visiting with students. In 2019 Arnett C. Lines Elementary celebrated 50 years of excellence in education. The school has earned the prestigious National Blue Ribbon Award three times, in 1994, 2008, and 2023.
