    Contrary to popular belief Berkeley Middle School is a great place for your child's educational needs. The school is small and so are the class sizes. This allows your child room to learn and grow. There are supportive services available upon request or by referral should your child need it. The principal and teachers are committed to helping your child achieve excellence.

    Well I have heard not so great ratings about Berkley Middle and I'm a bit nervous about moving my son to this school. He will be leaving Ferguson Middle and maybe going to a school even worse.

    Berkeley Middle School is horrible!!! Most not all teachers do not put the students as their priority. From what i have experienced there a lots of children who attend that have behavioral problems. I feel like my child attends a zoo instead of a school. The principle has no positive interactions with parents at school functions. Please do your homework before you send your child to this school. I am a very disappointed parent.

    Berkeley middle isa very low classschool. The children are not treated fairly and they are kept inside the schoolall day everyday. They have no time to go outdoors and interact with other students in the school. In my opinion berkeley middle school is not a very goodplace to send your child.
