Posted April 30, 2013

Our family has been SO PLEASED to get to know many of the AWESOME teachers and staff at Berea! Our 9th grader had attended private school previously, and we weren't sure what to expect. What we have found is a TREASURE. There is a bounty of caring, professional, and motivated staffers at this school. I've been amazed at the things that they accomplish and their level of participation and commitment. My student has achieved very high grades this year, and has participated in several extra curricular activities, which we've also enjoyed. Berea High School has exceeded our expectations in many areas. I have to congratulate them for earning a (USNews) bronze medal again this year, and for continuing to improve and succeed at an astounding rate. Great job, Bulldogs!
