The teachers and education are the best you will find. Their UpBeat program instills great values in its students such as helping others. They need a new building badly, and the budget was turned down. Without proper funding they may lose accreditation.

Excellent faculty, great students who are enormously involved in community service through a program called Upbeat Berlin. Great participation in athletics, music, and other extra-curriculars.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Connecticut used the Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) to test students' skills in reading, writing, science and math in grade 10. The CAPT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Connecticut.
