I'm torn. On the one hand, I think there are some great teachers and it's a wonderful small community. I feel like the teachers work hard to listen to parents' concerns and want the kids to succeed. But, I have a list of dislikes too. 1) There are cliques for sure and breaking into those is hard. 2) I really dislike how the sports' programs work. Kids who don't cough up hundreds of dollars to sign up don't get to play from a very young age instead of it being part of the PE program (which is actually divided between PE, Music and Library rotating that hour everyday). 3) The school is continually asking for money for everything from art projects to popcorn days to presents for teachers to parties. While some are voluntary, if the kids don't have money, they are excluded from some things. 4) Lunch breaks and recess are way too short (15 min each?). I've been with my kids at lunch and don't know how they eat it all when standing in line for their lunch is part of the 15 min. 5) Way too much homework. My kids have been in several schools never having this much. I'm torn about leaving due to those dislikes because I've seen them affect my children negatively.

We love Berryhill schools. Great teachers, administrators and parents. It is a small community and I know that the teachers would do anything to keep my children safe. We would highly recommend this school!

The main focus is on the 'in crowd' and football. If your family didn't grow up here, then you aren't in the clique. There is a nice football field- but NO computer classes for elementary, NO gifted & talented program, and field trips average about 1 per year, or some years 0. Curriculum is mainly worksheets, repetitive & boring, with a learn it or don't attitude, very outdated styles of teaching and discipline. The staff does have high expectations for the students, but not many are willing to put effort into helping students reach the expectations. We've been extremely disappointed with this school.

Berryhill Public Schools is a small district in a large city. Students get the attention needed to ensure success from grade to grade.

I am very pleased with Berryhill Elementary. The Administration. teachers, staff, students and parents all work very well together. It feels like family! The daily behavior reports in Thursday folders are very informative. It is a system that is run throughout the entire elementary school and each child knows from the 1st day they attend Berryhill what is expected of them. Great school!! We love it!! Go Chiefs!!

We have been terribly unimpressed by the lack of professionalism among the teachers and administration. With such a small district, there seems to be little or no accountability.

We moved to Berryhill the year my daughter started Pre-K. My husband and I have been very impressed with the community, the care and concern the teachers have for the students, and the values of the school. It may seem small, but it is certainly refreshing just knowing that all teachers and staff have YOUR child's best interest at heart.

Overall this school has been a big disappointment. Teachers spend too much time teaching students how to excel on state testing rather than on actual academic curriculum. The Indian Education program is basically non-existent, yet the school receives funding for one. The school needs to invest more in educational programs, IT, language, arts, etc, but instead, funding always seems to go to sports programs. Suggestions and complaints seem to fall on the deaf ears of apathetic school administrators.

I agree with the last 2 reviews; with an additional concern. I don't feel there is enough parent teacher interaction. I know that in the past class information was made available thru 'yourclasspage.com'. But, to my knowledge there is nothing made available to parents. So, far this year the Berryhill School system has been very disappointing.

Berryhill is not all it is cracked up to be. I pulled my 2 children out this last year. We had moved to the area from Jenks and are now back at Jenks. Berryhill is great if you are part of the 'clique'. They do not welcome outsiders and are very stuck up. It is also such a small school that at the upper levels there are many classes not offered.

We are very concerned about the schools here, and are working on moving our kids out of the system. In my opinion there is an inconsistent punishment policy. There seem to be few academic opportunities and a very limited selection of educational courses. We ve had only a couple of good teachers, with 3 kids and 4 years in the system. I have voiced some of my concerns to the school administration and have been made to feel like I am being a troublemaker. I don t feel like there is an open door policy for parents here.

We have been happy with Berryhill. It is a close knit, small community. Many of the parents attended the school as kids, everyone knows everyone. It also feels a little like a Christian school. They do not teach any religion, it is a public school but most of the families, teachers attend church around here, my kids are always invited to go to church with friends. I feel like their education level is very good. If your child is gifted and academically, Berryhill may not have everything you are looking for. They do have advanced placement Math and Reading, but just how advanced I am not sure. I am amazed at the parent involvement in elem. and jr-hi school. In elem. teachers recognize students each week at Friday assmemblys for: birthdays, kindness towards another student or helping a teacher, good attendance, students are made to feel good about themselves.

I am very impressed with berryhill schools. We have a very tight family oriented community. The teachers are very well aware of every students needs and are very attentive. I could not think of a better place for my 5 children to get a better education then at berryhill. I've had 2 of my children go to another school district and was not at all satisfied with the community involvment or their expectations of their students. Berryhill schools go beyond expectations, the band is exceptional, the sports at all ages are phenomenal, and all extracurricular activities are unbelievable; that includes 'release time' to the local church.

Academics are above average. Wide variety of activities for kids. Strong sports program. No soccer though. Parents and teachers are very involved with their children there are quite a few teachers whose children go to Berryhill. There are many people that devote their time and money to the success of Berryhill. Berryhill is very close to downtown Tulsa but remains to this day a hometown environment. You are not a number at Berryhill the teachers and principals pretty much know everyone. Very Impressed!

We have 2 children attending Berryhill Schools, my oldest has been attending for nine years. My husband also attended Berryhill Schools from Kindergarten to graduation. Many past students have either stayed in the area or have moved back for their children to attend Berryhill. The community bond in this small town is incredible. The parental involvement is exceptional. Many volunteer several days a week,if not every day. We have parents and teachers who have created programs to give children incentives in learning and building character. Our school is old and small, dating back to just before statehood. The quality of our school is inside it's modest walls, in our teachers/staff. Our teachers/staff are extremely gifted and take pride in their 'learning styles' approach to education, in that every child learns their own way, and every child is counted and cared for. Go Chiefs! 2004 Football State Champions! We own the field!

My children have attended Berryhill schools for six years, with the exception of one or two teachers, I feel they are great. The principal is very strong on displine and always available to talk to parents.
