This is a fantastic school. Do not let people influence you toward Richardson HS or Pearce HS. Berkner has a better music program by far, similar or better teachers and curriculum, and the neighborhood is slightly less expensive and less crowded. I like diversity and if you look at the pie chart, every race is represented equally and there is every country on earth represented at Berkner.
I am the father of 3 girls who graduated in 1999 and twins in 2005. They all loved it and one went on to get her PhD and our twin daughters recently received their master degrees. I liked the diversity. I think more could have been done to encourage dialogue among the students on diversity.
This is one of THE best Public High School in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex! The teachers care, they don't give up on the student, and they grade it fairly. I saw a huge increase in my son's mathematics skills in two months!
