  • 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.
