I recommend this school because not only do the teachers care about your academic needs , but also your spiritual needs. Chapel every week is always great and our youth Pastor goes all out to make it fun and helpful.

After experiencing public middle school, I found Berean to be well above the academic standards with a very well rounded curriculum. The staff and students are very friendly and helpful.

I attended this school during HS myself and now have friends who send their children there (we live out of state). Berean is a wonderful school with caring, dedicated teachers. I highly recommend Berean for its academic excellence and high ethical standards. Berean is always a good challenge for children and has a wonderful, cheerful family environment.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
