Love this school for my two daughters! What an amazing place. BC encourages students to explore their interests in a warm, supportive yet rigorous environment. Fantastic teachers who really care and know their stuff. The school cares about the total student - and it shows.
Review Berkeley Carroll School
I am the parent of two BCS graduates whose kids started in the lower school. My kids are very different but the school served each of them exceptionally well. One needed strong support; the other needed real challenge. Both hit their stride through a combination of stimulating, demanding, well-supported academics along with strong, varied opportunities in sports and extracurriculars. They were well prepared for college where both were admitted to their first choice schools at top-ranked institutions. Overall the faculty is outstanding: passionate, dynamic, caring, and inspiring. The school's educators and administrators strive to provide the best possible learning environment and frequently are at the forefront of educational innovation. Finally, there is a genuine sense of community at the school that made our family's experience a truly rewarding one. Our children are proud to call themselves BCS graduates, and we are proud to have been a part of the school for many years.
We have two children in the lower school who have both started in the PreK program at Berkeley Carroll. The teachers have been amazing...intelligent, caring, creative, etc. They are always available to discuss any concerns that we, as parents, might have. The academics are strong, and we feel that the curriculum has become better every year. Also, we love that the school incorporates varying degrees of public speaking, spanish, and swimming into the weekly schedule for the lower school.
