I had the opportunity to get to know students from various backgrounds and cultures. This allowed me to gain a true appreciation of diversity. There were also many types learning options available to students. Throughout my entire high school career, I was enrolled in extended learning opportunities such as Project Lead The Way as well as the Professional Health Careers Academy.

I would have appreciated more staff members showing students that they cared about them personally. I had teachers show that they care but they were the exception, not the rule.

My personal experience and Berrien Springs High School was wonderful. I’ve heard very few negative stories, and personally haven’t experienced anything negative myself. I absolutely love all my teachers, and I feel like they all genuinely care about every student’s success in this school. They have opportunities to join share time and dual enrollment programs, which have served as a very valuable resource to myself and hundreds of other students as well.
Berrien Springs High is truly an experience. I must admit, having moved here, I was in no way expectant of the blend of cultures and fluent diversity that is present here. In every sense of the word, Berrien Springs is a melting pot of nations. This aspect of diversity adds a lot to the overall spirit and experience of the school. Not only is one exposed to various lifestyles and ideologies as well as behaviors, but one is also given the grand opportunity of thriving in an environment suitable for whatever learning style is conducive to the individual. Berrien Springs has virtually no bullies and if anything,its students are encouraged to do books and not drugs. With this being said, it is important to note that academics are 'the thing'. Atypical of seemingly a large amount of teenagers, this environment boosts high performance in education as well as in athletics. Alongside these added factors, the student faculty is beyond friendly and the school spirit here is like no other. I love Berrien Springs!
