Bertschi School educates children to become compassionate, confident and creative learners in a global community.  But this is not just the mission of the school, it’s also how Bertschi operates every day.
It’s what we call the Bertschi Way, and it’s what visitors experience as soon as they walk through the doors.
Bertschi students are taught to know who they are, who their fellow students are, and the impact and influence they have on their community.
Staff, teachers, parents, and students work together to establish an environment that is inclusive, supportive, and respectful.
