Berkley High School offers a unique high school experience. It provides academic catering to all levels of students, including APs. Concepts are covered in depth, not mere repetition. The teachers were always not only respectful to their students but respectable to their students. It lacks the social conflicts of a stereotypical high school, with bullying and conflict never being an issue. As a result, I always felt very safe. The cliques are replaced in this school with diverse social connections between people of different races, academic standings, and physical abilities. There's a relaxed school culture that is very lenient but still effective, as students at the school are respectful and delinquency is low. The school's strong in science and math, and students are also able to access the Center for Advanced Studies and the Arts to go even further. One potential improvement would be the arts program, which is not well described to the students and the options limited.

As a guest/subsitute teacher working on my teaching certificate, I can tell you firsthand, this school is phenomenal. Their teachers and staff are kind and supportive. They have high expectations for their students with a great group of dedicated educators and it shows. I always feel welcome at Berkley High-- by the students as well as the staff. Their approach is unique and it works.
I have no doubt this school produces amazing young adults who have a bright future ahead of them.
It is pretty diverse which is good and has an amazing special needs program. The ap courses available have help me improve and I have learned that I don’t need to be the best in the class, just as long as I learn from what I do. My only concern is the physical state of the school. We have shower curtains for stall doors in multiple bathrooms and the air conditioning that the school got funding for twice is never turned on and when it is it doesn’t work. It is concerning how the schools keep getting these expensive grants and they are spent on re doing the entry way instead of spent on school materials. Overall it is a good school and I’m am lucky to have gone here and would recommend it to anyone who has kids that wants them to grow up wise and have good social skills.
