Berkeley Elementary School Reviews
This was my daughter’s first year of school at Berkeley elementary. So far from what I have been able to observe, the teachers seem to be really nice and caring. I feel that they do a good job at teaching the material that needs to be taught, however we as parents need to re-enforce what is taught in order to see our children really succeed academically. There 2 major negative observations I have made regarding this school and they are, 1. The school seems to be very poor. They are always asking for money for fundraisers… 2. I find that the school is kind of small. The gym and auditorium are in the same room and I do not like the way the school looks on the outside. I know this is a public school and I do not expect luxury, but I have seen other public schools that look way better than Berkeley Elementary. Do I recommend this school? Yes, like I said, teachers are nice and caring; the principle is wonderful and truly loves children. I think the fact that the school is nice and clean on the inside and has a caring staff makes up for how bad it looks on the outside and all the other stuff I mentioned. Hope this review helps.
Excellent School. Should be a 10 rating. The teachers and the principal are very concern about each individual child. My child (an Honor Roll Student) came to this school from out of state and really likes this school. The children here behave very well and are very polite. There is no bullying in this school. Great , great, great school.....
I think that this wonderful school is best for children. All of the children at this school has a very brilliant brain. If your child has a problem in class or with another student the teachers will pull you into the hallway and solve the problem with those students or keep you in for the first part of recess and help you solve it. The teachers in that school are very well known for what they ar doing. If your child is not understanding their work his/her teacher will go through the steps with them very carfully. If you forget a homework assignment they will have to pay the consequences, stay in the class room, and miss first the part of recess to finish the assignment. I have alot of more things to say but I think that is a good amount of things to say about my wonderful school.
