What i think others should know about Berkman Elementary School is that the teachers in 2nd grade are very nice, understanding, and I feel they have a real passion to make sure the students get the education at the level the kids need. I like this school because they have made us welcomed to their school. The school could improve by getting more volunteers to help with the little things like cross walk guard, ability to help the teacher with items that need cut out or prepared early so the students can learn more. A media room at the school such as die cut outs, laminating machines, cutting boards, etc.... to help with education would be a great help to the teachers also.

Not as great as the other reviews suggest. If I was able to take my child elsewhere I would.

I just moved to Round Rock in July from California and I have been very impressed with this school. The communication has been wonderful. Whenever there is an issue, I trust his teacher will send me an email. My son requires special education assistance and the school has been very accommodating to his needs. I look forward to sending my youngest here in 2 years!

My daughter gone to Berkman in 2nd grade. I come to visit to see her and her teacher that I really admired her so much. My daughter loves to go there and learn challengences with her teacher. I'm deaf parent with my daughter, she's hearing. I haven't much socialize around other parents who have kids attend to this school. Because this school is English/Spanish language. This is our first time we lived in Round Rock since July 31, 2005. So far I see her grades is good standard level 98. I encourage this school to continue improve more learning English language include Spanish language, too
