I’ve been at Berkeley for 7 years and it’s the best school I could of asked for, the teachers are not as strict as made out to be and really nice and fun people to be around and overall I love the school ????

I’ve had an amazing experience with Berkeley Academy. I have recently started working as a 4th grade teacher and have been welcomed with open arms by the staff and students. My fellow teachers and the admin staff have been extremely supportive during my on-boarding period. I can not wait to see what my future at Berkeley Academy holds!

A través de mi vida, yo he estado en diferentes escuelas, en diferentes países del mundo. Y nunca he estado en una escuela con mejores valores y nivel académico, como el que tiene Berkeley Academy. Estos 4 años han sido los mejores de mi vida, y todo ha sido gracias a está maravillosa escuela, ya que he aprendido cosas que probablemente no aprenderé en otro lugar. Además de esto tambien me ha brindado amigos que recordaré por toda vida. Solo queria decir gracias por todo a está magnifica institución, espero que los años que me quedan como académico, sean aqui y no en otra escuela.
