Berkshire High School Ratings & Reviews
I went to this school from 1987-1994. This school has one of the best teachers and great sports programs. The teachers really care about their students and strive them to better them selves. Berkshire is a very clean school and they are ranked in the top 5 school with the academic scorers in the their region. Berkshire has a really great way of teaching the students and showing them that they can do any thing they want in their lives. Berkshire is my school that I pick. If anybody is looking for a great school then check out BERKSHIRE HIGH.
If you send your child to this school you MUST be the one who will be in the driver seat directing the lack of education and guidance they will receive to get into college. If your child chooses not to participate in a sport they will be left behind, ignored, belittled and the faculty will have no use for them. Many of the students have a sense of entitlement issue, as do the teachers. If you would like your child to have a below average education you should send them to Berkshire.
The district suffers from cronyism. Complete lack of willingness to lead in a positive direction. Communications with parent community and student body often disrespectful and dismissive. Very disciplinarian style of leadership, teachers look for students to do something wrong. Positive recognition of students supports cronyism rather than achievement and true potential. Been in the district over 10 years and it keeps getting worse. Paradigm shift in order. Minimal curriculum.
I agree with many of the recent assessments of Berkshire. I am a 1992 graduate and have watched the school's ratings dip lower and lower in the decades since. There used to be a lot more academic diversity than there is now. While I wouldn't call it a "jock school", the balance between academics and athletics has certainly been tipped in the athletic direction considerably in recent years. Gone are many of the teachers who would drive from other counties to teach in one of the better schools around.
i am curently a senior at this school and i would just like to say we may be a 'jock school' but that's because that is what the students here choose to devote their time to. We don't have a gifted program ,no. This is because gifted students take up a small fraction of the student body and we are a small school as it is. that being said the gifted student body is proportionally smaller than other larger schools making it uneconomical to offer a gifted program.
