    BPS is a terrific school. Academically, it is top-notch. Socially, like any school, you have your cliques. I would like to see more inclusion between the cliques. Our headmaster is the best and the teachers are great. Overall, I have had an amazing experience at Berkeley. Go Bucs!

    Berkeley Preparatory School is a great environment for students to learn and push themselves academically and outside the classroom. I came in 8th grade, and I recommend coming to the school in high school because so many other students seemed to be stuck in a "Berkeley bubble" when enrolling in kindergarten or throughout early elementary school. The teachers were amazing, but the administration is not great, especially regarding the sports programs.
    Berkeley Preparatory School has become one of the best things that has happened to me. I am so grateful to be able to go to a school with such care for the students, and their incredible strive for the students’ success. Each and every faculty member gets to know all of their students, which makes Berkeley a safe and welcoming environment—that many other schools cannot provide. I am very proud to call myself a Berkeley buccaneer, and I guarantee you will too!
