I like my school, but it could be better. Luckily, we are constructing a new building that classes after mine, 2021, will be able to learn in. I am excited to be the last class graduating our old building next year!
My school, as I just said, is old. It has no air condition, which is rough in the summer, it doesn’t have the best facilities (they’re average), and it’s small. So small, that we fit 6 grades in one building, with some hallways that can only fit two people across it. Our classes are considered to be small, with about 20-25 people in each, compared to other larger high schools. It does allow us though to have a better relationship with our teachers. Not only that, but our teachers care tremendously for our education and safety; I know that they see us as their own children, which is one of the best aspects of Berkshire High School. We may not as extravagant as other schools in academics, sports, or architecturally, but our close-knit school makes up for most of it.

There is a police officer who dedicates his time to protecting Berkshire, which makes me feel safe. I see a strong sports program, with many teachers serving as coaches and a regimented schedule each season. By the same token, academics are less of a priority in compassion to sports, proven by the many occasions in which pep rallies have interrupted class periods. One thing that is poor at Berkshire is the dedication and knowledge of the teachers. Many teachers fail to explain a topic and therefore allow their students to fail in the mastery of that subject. There is also a complete lack of professionalism and boundaries at Berkshire. Most students call our Assistant Principal by his first name, and many teachers have personal relationships with their students. Teachers aren’t living up to their responsibilities of educators. If we can't rely on teachers to have knowledge in the subject in which they're teaching, how can we entrust them to teach students? Berkshire needs a change.
Certain staff members were the greatest people you could ever want as teachers. Large enough to be an average-sized school, but each graduating class knew each other like family. Additions with new programs and devices in the school was a great way for students to expand on interests and enabled their creativity to travel into their classes well.
