Berlin High School Reviews

My overall high school experience has been truly rewarding. I have surrounded myself with a diverse group of friends who all have different strengths and talents. My teachers have been very helpful, they treat you not only as a student, but as a person. They understand high school is tough and that home life can be stressful as well. They show much personality within their teaching. I have decided to do something completely unlike of me my Senior year and do the school musical. I was welcomed with open arms and met new people that I would have never gotten the chance to talk to before! I am overall very pleased with my high school experience and wouldn't doubt that many students would agree with my statement.

Berlin High School offers a plethora of courses for both core and exploratory classes. Teachers and staff are (for the most part) kind and understanding and willing to help students as individuals. Unfortunately, the school has become a victim to the town's budget cuts. Several of our best teachers have been laid off and many elective programs have been canceled. (Most important of which being language classes) BHS is a beautiful school but its seems if budget cuts continue it's going way downhill.
I have been attending Berlin High School for the past three years now. My time here has been pleasant so far. At Berlin High School, I have built strong, personal connections with the staff. The environment at this school is very positive as well as motivating. The staff at Berlin High School are very invested in their students and encourage them to be their best selves, both in and out of the classroom. I have also created many friendships here at Berlin High School and have found that everyone is very inclusive and friendly.
