    My children attended this school and they miss their teachers so much and so do I... The teachers always had time to hear any concerns I had regarding my children all 3 teachers were great... and so was all the staff... we love berlyn

    I absolutely love this school! My kids have attended 3 elementary schools since kindergarten & this is by far the best school they have been to. My oldest child was chosen to go to Edison elementary school for the gate program & I was horrified with their teachers & staff!!! I never would have allowed my child to attend the other elementary if I had known what was in store for her there. Berlyn except for a choice few has by far a better teaching & office staff then most schools. They are supportive careing and wonderful motivators. Berlyn elementary is in my oppion the best elementary school in this area.

    This school is full of teachers who bully kids especially Mrs. Ingram. If your child has her as a teacher keep a close eye.

    My daughter came here for 2 years then got accepted to a local "magnet" school. We haven't even finished the 1st year with the new school and my daughter really misses the teachers kids among a list of other things. I would have never changed schools for her if I would have known we would go from a 5 star rating (Berlyn) to a 1 star rating.

    My daughter came from another school a year and a half ago. At the other School they told me she was not at her grade level. When we moved and she came to Berlyn they didn't judge her and and helped her with her people skills and her grades are back up again. I love this school the Teachers are the best and helpful and care for our kids.

    Berlyn is a great school. The teachers are working really hard to bring the scores up. They have high expectations for the kids and want the best for them.
