Berkley School District Reviews

I found Berkley to be a very diverse and unique school. I entered the district in fifth grade, coming from a Jewish private school. At first, I was shocked by the difference in culture, rules, and overall how schooling was run. Going into my senior year, I could not have asked for a better school district. Almost every teacher I have had is extremely dedicated to their students and go above and beyond their job descriptions to ensure they do all they can for their students. Like any other school district, things are not perfect. By this I mean sometimes students lose sight of things and start to go down the wrong path. When this happens the Berkley staff dedicates themselves to those students like no other district. Berkley has given me so many opportunities that I am so grateful for. Some of my favorite high school experiences are at DECA conferences working with the marketing program and going to sports games with my rugby team. Berkley is truly unique and a great community.

What I liked about Berkley school district is that he community is so diverse and most of the people within in it are really great people to meet! They do need improvement on the food in the lunch line and also they need improvement on how some of the staff treats people. I would hear stories about the times. Where hall monitors or even teachers would treat people in my grade and it was not too pleasent to hear. Overall, Berkley High is a great school inside and out!
