Berlin Community School Reviews

In the past few years we have experienced a major administrative change with our previous superintendent leaving for another district and taking multiple administrators and multiple other staff members with him.
The current administration has had to overcome many issues including longtime staff retiring, budget shortfalls, and having to rebuild and new leadership team to effectively guide our school.
While the school is not perfect, they strive to create a safe environment that is inclusive, that focuses on character education, while teaching all of the typical basics.
I feel as though our administration and teachers truely care for the students of BCS. They are approachable, receptive, and eager to make the town of Berlin and the BCS community a great place to live.

It is a small K-8 in small, community minded, town. The teachers, parents and Home and School Association are very involved and do a lot for the students and community. The new administration could do more to help struggling students through special services, but the teachers are extremely caring and go out of their way to assist the students.
Great School and teachers. My son has had nothing but good experiences here. Small enough to now everyone but large enough to have plenty of options.
