10 Parent Reviews for Berkshire High School

I went to this school from 1987-1994. This school has one of the best teachers and great sports programs. The teachers really care about their students and strive them to better them selves. Berkshire is a very clean school and they are ranked in the top 5 school with the academic scorers in the their ...  Read more

If you send your child to this school you MUST be the one who will be in the driver seat directing the lack of education and guidance they will receive to get into college. If your child chooses not to participate in a sport they will be left behind, ignored, belittled and the faculty will have no use ...  Read more

The district suffers from cronyism. Complete lack of willingness to lead in a positive direction. Communications with parent community and student body often disrespectful and dismissive. Very disciplinarian style of leadership, teachers look for students to do something wrong. Positive recognition ...  Read more

I agree with many of the recent assessments of Berkshire. I am a 1992 graduate and have watched the school's ratings dip lower and lower in the decades since. There used to be a lot more academic diversity than there is now. While I wouldn't call it a "jock school", the balance between academics and ...  Read more

i am curently a senior at this school and i would just like to say we may be a 'jock school' but that's because that is what the students here choose to devote their time to. We don't have a gifted program ,no. This is because gifted students take up a small fraction of the student body and we are a ...  Read more

Berkshire suffers most from the poor funding system in Ohio. They also developed a reputation as being a 'jock' school. A lot of small town 'special interests.' but overall it is a school that is better than many of the larger schools, but I have visited other schools of similar size that offer more ...  Read more

As a parent I found berkshire's lack of opportunities for the high school's gifted students non-exsitant. The best and the brightest students' needs are ignored. Providing AP classes are only good for those students that do not fit the 'typical' profile of gifted. Parents are left to their own (often ...  Read more

'Ethical diversity' ? A diversity of ethics? Berkshire is the 'little district that could' (and does. Good class sizes, strong academic core, excellent teachers, caring community. -Berkshire Graduate

Posted by a former student on 08/04/04

As an actual student I can say the review from march was a very biased review. I see almost everyday a teacher helping numerous students with their respective subject. The one major complaint against berkshire isn't even their fault. It is that now with the new OGT they really have to rework the science ...  Read more

Berkshire jr./sr. highschool puts way too much emphasis on sports and not enough on academics, the teacher involvement in anything non-athletic is basically non-existant and everyone has a communication problem-no one wants to talk to anyone so if anything important was ever planned, there would be serious ...  Read more
