Berkeley Carroll is an excellent school that is fully committed to its mission of inspiring critical, ethical and global thinking. This starts early in the lower school and continues all the way through. The interdisciplinary approach is rigorous and requires that students think deeply and make connections all the time with class discussion, compelling projects, papers and public speaking. The teachers are passionate about teaching and getting to know and help their students. We always come away from parent teacher conferences blown away by the intelligence and energy of the teachers. Our kids in the lower and upper school have been very happy socially and academically.

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.
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.
