I am a student at Berkshire, and it is a phenonemal school. It's smaller than most prep schools, it has exceptional college placement, a beautiful campus, and amazing sports facilities. This is a school with a lot of money for facilities, and a reputation on the rise.

Posted September 3, 2003

A long tradition of educating tomorrow's leaders while instilling in them stong moral values and a sense of community has never held Berkshire School back in its advancement to the future. An absolutely gourgeous campus surrounds ongoing improvements to its already 'first class' physical plant that provides its students a unique opprtunity in which to study their environment as well as the Arts and Sciences. The administration is progressive, the faculty is nurturing in and out of the classroom and the staff is continuously there to assist the commu-nity and to maintain this very special 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.
