We moved to SC from another state with with excellent schools. My daughter went from loving school and getting straight As to hating school and only making average grades. Had I known what I do now, we would never have moved here. The area is nice, but schools are horrible...unless you can afford private schools. The school counselors gave us incorrect advice about classes when we enrolled. We were not permitted to enroll my child in any advanced programs because we were transferring from out of state. They have a poor selection of electives. Teachers ALWAYS have difficulty maintaining order in the classrooms. You also cannot trust the bussing system. It's dangerous, unreliable, and discriminatory. I would never recommend this school to anyone.

The 3 star rating on this site is incorrect. This school is horrible!! The staff do not control the classroomsor the hostile students as they should. Many of the teachers are unqualified and ill-equipped to teach on the high school level. The education received is sub-par and poorly prepares students for their future careers. Unless they choose blue collar employement or the miitary; beyond that they are being set uo for future failure.

I could not understand why many of the students at Berkeley High School are so aggressive and disrespectful towards each other, until I learned of the attitude that the BHS principlal has towards some of the students. My child innocently was walking in the hallway, during the pledge if allegiance, as she was on her way to class. Unexpectedly, the principal signalled her out in front of her peers who were also walking in the hall at that time, and criticized her for not showing the proper respect, by not stopping and holding her hand to her heart in the hallway.My daughter gently responded to her by saying "I'm sorry." The principal angrily snapped back at her and yelled "You should be!." My daughter was very hurt by the princpal's heartless response to her unintentional error. Also, students at BHS place much pressure on each other to dress, act and look a certain way, or face isolation, name calling and the like. But the faculty at BHS literally ignore these and other hostilities. If you care about your child's self-esteem and piece of mind, then BHS is the wrong choice for schools.

I absolutely love going to this school; and wouldn't choose any other school to attend my high school years. Ive met some great students; friends and i the teachers actually connect with the students and try to understand them. Berkeley High is starting a lot of new programs to show an improvement and let others know where not just what you hear. Berkeley is by the far the best school ive attended.

The teachers are caring and will help the student if the student wants help. My daughter is advanced in grade, but young in age. The teachers are always willing to talk to her or me about advance placement. The staff will help parents keep an eye on their kids. From the janitor to the lunchroom lady. They go to the sporting events and know your childs name. If you are interested, and stay involved, your child will have a pleasant experience.

As a high school graduate of the class of 2004 I can honestly tell you Berkeley was the best school I could have possible attended. In my four years attending Berkeley I was involved in over 14 clubs and associations. 10 in which I became a leader, president or commander of. I would recommend any student to go to Berkeley. As someone who grew up in schools all over the United States Berkeley was the only school in which racism and violence wasn't an issue. I am proud to hang my Berkeley High School Diploma on the wall. As well as my teaching degree from Charleston Southern University. Berekeley will of course be the first school I plan to teach.
