Words will never be able to describe the gift that BCEMS has given my son. The teachers, coaches and administration not only care for their students success academically but for the success of their social wellbeing. We will leave with a more confident, caring, healthy, and intelligent young man all because BCEMS refused to ever give up on him! What a testament to their mission of life-long skills foundation- head, heart and hands.

BCES is an exceptional school with teachers willing to go the distance to help students learn to love learning. Much of the curriculum includes experiential learning. They use the amazing Berry College campus very well. Parents are supportive and involved.

We love the beautiful trees and deer and hiking trails at Berry, but this school is outstanding for so many more reasons. Our daughter was in a gifted program at public school but at Berry, she is challenged every day. We are pleased with the caring teachers and coaches, the focus on learning, a strong foundation, writing skills, the way the students work together, and most of all, the joy our child has for learning. We are thankful she can be at Berry's middle school through 8th grade. We wish we could go there for high school too!

Berry is an excellent environment for kids to learn by doing! The teachers are phenomenal and strive to provide the best for our kids! My kids love to go to school and miss it when they are out for long breaks. I would highly recommend Berry to any parent looking in the area. Parental involvement is super, too, we all want to be a part of Berry!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
