Berkeley School

  • Berkeley is a small, non-sectarian private school. Our basic premise is that a comfortable, structured atmosphere, in which the child is valued and respected as an individual, is essential to a successful learning experience.
  • Our goals for each student include not only the acquisition of strong basic academic skills, but a firm self-image, independent study habits, and a sense of responsibility.
  • We recognize that by the time a child comes to school, his/her education is already in progress, no matter what the age of the child.
  • The parents have been the child's first teachers, and will continue to be the most influential force in the child's life.
  • It is the responsibility of our school to help the child to integrate his/her new learning experiences in the school environment with the values that are of importance to the child's family.
  • The Berkeley School offers an individually crafted curriculum for each of our students.
  • Designed to offer each child the opportunity for their unique talents to grow and excel.
