I really enjoy going to school here! All of my teachers are incredibly nice, helpful, and supportive. Most teachers will go out of their way to help a student to succeed, whether it is for college applications or just on how to do the lesson that we learned that day. I love the community that is offered there. I really enjoy going to school and I like the environment that is cultivated here.

The staff are super friendly and helpful. I was a cheerleader all 4 years of my high school career. The booster club never helped the cheerleaders with anything and always expected us to do whatever they said. If it was for any other sport they would pay for everything. For example pay for hotel rooms for wrestling during state, pay for new uniforms and warmups and duffle bags for every sport except cheer, and never help with cheer fundraisers after saying they would but they'd help all the other sports fundraise. They don't support the arts. For example all 3 years I went to All-State Choir they never offered to help pay for hotel costs. If students are failing a class or having missing work they can't play in the games. My school lets this rule slide. The star player of the team gets to play with failing grades, while failing the class. I hope Beresford will focus on academics and the arts soon.
The atmosphere at Beresford is very friendly and close. As it is a small school in a small town, everyone knows everyone. The majority of the teachers are fantastic and well-liked. Also, with it being a small school their are more opportunities to get involved in different activities.
