When looking for a school for our son my wife and we wanted a school that had small class sizes, had an emphasis on the arts as well as academics, and had teachers that were dedicated to teaching.

My daughter attends this school and I can not tell you how much she loves it and how much I love the improvement that she has made while attending. The individualized attention that she receives is amazing. The teachers are so nurturing, caring, positive and exceptional. My daughter receives dance

The school is very small and because of that they can give a child so much attention. The school is housed in two small buildings next to the Fullerton Museum, but don't let the small outside appearance dissuade you from going in and seeing what it is like inside and talking to the amazing staff. They can do wonderful things in those little buildings. If you are looking for a good school, I would absolutely recommend that you come and talk to Mrs. Childres. Read less

He felt accepted, safe and successful and he had fun. And he learned all this from the most dedicated, expert, patient, loving teachers possible. Read less

Although we live in Irvine, with its highly-regarded public schools, we make the long drive to Berkeley each day because it's just that special. Berkeley has an immensely talented, experienced and loving staff, great academics, and extras you can't find at most schools -- music, dance, art, language

This is the rare school where a shy child can blossom, where a struggling child can succeed, where a gifted child can be challenged. It can do these magical things because its teachers combine enormous experience with a flexibility that allows for a tailor-made education. It's extremely rare to find this combination of fresh ideas and depth of knowledge in one place, but Berkeley has it. An absolute gem of a school. Read less

My son attended preschool at a community college where I teach. Once he began to be inquisitive about reading and math, the CDC didn't do much for him, and he became a wallflower. I searched around for something small and Not-Fairmont (if you live locally, you know what I mean) and ended up choosing

The atmosphere is incredible--personal, familial. What sealed the deal for me is this: one of my colleagues in the English department had GONE there as a child and adored her experiences. So glad we found Berkeley! Read less

I transferred my child from public school to Berkerely because she needed more one on one instruction. Berkerely is not the school if you are looking for academic instruction. It seems to focus on lots of free play time & not enough academics. It has it niche to appeal to certain families but I was

My son is finishing his second year at Berkerley School and we couldn't be happier. He enjoys going to school and is always enthusiastically relating information aquired from his various teachers. Though he's only in kindergarten, he has a main teacher as well as dance, music, science, art and language

He has never been made to feel as though he's not doing enough. Within the first month of his attending Berkeley School I saw profound changes. He went from a bright and happy kid just spending time at a pre-school, to a bright, happy kid excited about going to school and just as excitedly telling his parents that evening about what blood does or showing us his latest dance move. Berkeley School is a Treasure. Read less

Our daughter is a 3rd grader at Berkeley School, having been there since Pre-K. She does exceptionally well and absolutely loves it.
