    This is a wonderful school that I have worked at for 9 years. The teachers work very hard to meet every need of the students. I was very surprised and taken aback that this school only got a 6 out of 10 we deserved so much more not just because I teach there but because I also am a parent to a student.

    My son is in 2nd grade & has attended Berkeley since kindergarten. We're very pleased with the school. We love that it is the smallest school in the county; it has a nice community feel. The principal is great very active & good with the kids. We've liked some of his teachers better than others but that's normal. My son has ADD & the staff has been very helpful in getting him the help he needs. I do feel there is too much homework & emphasis on testing but unfortunately I think that is a statewide problem. Overall we're very happy with Berkeley.

    My son really enjoys school. We moved from SC to Virginia and I had to home school my child because I was not happy with the school system there. I have no complaints about this school.
