Love this school for my two daughters! What an amazing place. BC encourages students to explore their interests in a warm, supportive yet rigorous environment. Fantastic teachers who really care and know their stuff. The school cares about the total student - and it shows.

My daughter's formative years were spent here at Berkeley Carroll. It's outstanding faculty and curriculum engaged and prepared her to succeed as a student. Highly recommend.

My twin sons have been there since kindergarten. They are in the ninth grade now. I wouldn't send them anywhere else. The classes are rigorous; the teachers understanding, and (most of all) the environment is rigorous and supportive. Also, the technology program is unmatched as far as I can tell.

My daughter transferred here in high school after attending an Upper East Side elementary/middle school. The transition was seamless. The courses remain rigorous and intellectually challenging (and the offerings are wide-ranging), but the atmosphere is more relaxed and grounded. We couldn't be happier.
