Berne Private school offers a good learning environment, school clubs, art and great teachers. The curriculm is grade level based, which you won't find in public schools. With that being said, your child will not be pressured into learning lessons they have not been prepared for.

I am a longtime parent of a student that attends Berne Academy...In my opinion this school is to be congratulated on their excellent leadership and quality of education...I have seen vast improvements in not only my daughter, but other students as well. Yes the classes have multi grade levels. However, thist type of teaching improves the multi-level of understanding of the curriculum that is being taught at this school. The students are challenged and promoted to higher education each year to each grade at this school. I have no concerns with the teachers. I feel that they highly qualified to do their job...I would recommend this school to anyone looking for an enviroment of quality teaching you will not get in public school.

My daughter has been going to Berne Academy since Pk, She has just went in to the 5th grade. had to move and put her in a public school, And found out they had to put her back in 4th grade because she is not up to Texas Standards. I never knew this cause her report cards were always A. I was so upset that all the money I put out thinking she was getting a good Education was all a lie. To me this school is money hungry and has sub pare teachers. This has hurt my daughter.I would not recommend this school if you want your child to get a good Education, I think someone need to find out what is going on at this school. And another thing each teacher is at least teaching 3 grades in one class that should tell you something. I hope this School gets turned in.

My son attended this school for just under two years. This is the worse school I have ever dealt with. Throughout his time at Berne, he was being bullied, picked on and teased. The staff "pretended" to be doing something about it, but I later found out that was not true. When he began to act out because of it, he was always blamed for the incident and most of the time the only student to be punished. I never understood how he could be an "A/B" student, when he was always being kicked out of the classroom. Now I know! When my son left, he was unable to look a word up in the dictionary on his own. A 4th grader, who could not use a dictionary! I was constantly in contact with his "teacher" and the principal and believe wholeheartedly, I was being misled about my son's education. I would NEVER recommend this school to any parent. If your child is attending this so-called Christian academy, you'd better have him/her tested for aptitude. You might be surprised at what it reveals to you. My son is now being homeschooled - a 360 degree change in his eagerness to learn, his knowledge base and his enthusiasm. It's very challenging, but he is really learning now!

My son has attended Berne for one year now. My husband believe this is was the best decision we made. The teachers are caring and supportive of all the children. This school provides excellent teaching along with a strong christian qualities.

Our daughter attended this school for 8 years. The experience was wonderful for her. When we had to place her in public school, her skills were far beyond what they were teaching thanks to her years at Berne. The teachers & staff openly welcome parental involvement on field trips, in the classroom, on the playground, at sporting events, etc.. While other schools seem to want the parents to stay out, Berne always welcomed us in. The school has a family enviornment. Teachers are open to trying different teaching styles to fit each student's learning style. In our experience, they were also very caring. I would recommend this school to anybody who wants their child to learn in a safe, caring environment.

My daughter has been attending this school for 6 years. She loves it here. The academic program is top quality. The extra curricular activities are outstanding. The level of parent involvement is way above average. Teachers care about their students and parents. Well established stable, Christian evironment. I love the smaller ratio of children per grade/per classroom. The teacher is able to give one on one special attention. I would recommend this school to anyone.

I am very happy with the over academic quality of Berne Academy and it's great teacher to student ratio. I also like the fact that the grades are combined to allow tutoring by older students, with the old one room school feeling. I do wish there were more extracruuicular activies available.

As a grandparent with two grandchildren enrolled at Berne Academy, I am very pleased with the quality of instruction, as well as the all-important focus on spiritual growth that the children are given on a daily basis. The individual lessons, challenges for their academic acheivement levels, and continueal monitoring of their progress is rare in this age of overcrowding and resulting lack of one-on-one instruction in so many schools. Berne has provided an excellent education in a solid Christian environment. Classes are fun, challenging, well-maintained and orderly. The teachers show their dedication and professionalism, helping each student acheive to the best of his ability.

This school has shown care and concern for individual students that we haven't found elsewhere. Teachers are very willing to help whenever help is needed and each child gets a lot of time alone with the teacher or tutor when they don't understand the lessons.

This school is small and closeknit. Students receive a lot of clsoe personal instruction and get help whenever needed. The brighter kids are kept busy with more difficult levels of work. Open doors make parents feel welcome.

Very small classes. The teachers are few and at times a non qualified staff member will teach. Because of the small 'family' type environment, some staff members will speak inappropriately to the children and often times give the children personal opinions on what they think about the child. 'Christian' is not the environment of the school often times you can hear the children using profanity screaming at the teachers. This school is more of a alternative type school.
