Berkshire Elementary School Reviews
I'm a parent to both a 1st grade student and a fourth grade teacher at Berkshire Elem. School and am very disappointed with the whole teaching method in the FCAT grades. The kids are being taught to the test. Being crammed with information to past the test with no long term retention of what their being taught. Its a disgrace and injustice to our kids. Teachers aren't allowed to teach, they are being told what and how to teach. Teachers should be allowed to use the knowledge and different teaching methods they see fit for the kids in their class. My 1st grade daughter has a wonderful teacher this year, but I still have her at Huntington for reinforcement.
I don't think that is an accurate statement. English is the main language and Spanish is still considered a second language. Be careful if you were told this. I am a teacer at a different school and I teach English to students who speak a different language. English is the main language!!
i think this school has a VERY good record for educating our children from what ive seen , i have a daughter who started kindergarder this yr at berkshire , one thing thats very troubling to me tho is the fact that ive been told that learning in English is being phased out because of the % of spanish speaking students as compared to english speaking students? SOMEONE please tell me that my daughters education isnt going to suffer because of this ? I am the least racial person you'll ever meet but , but excuse me isnt ENGLISH the primary spoken language in this country ? please enlighten me
I think it is a great school. The teachers work close with the students and everyone makes sure the kids are taken care of.
