Welcome to Berkshire Student Life
At Berkshire School, our motto: Not just for school but for life sits at the core of everything we do. From an informal conversation at a sit down family style meal to the topics discussed in our health and wellness program, students learn about personal and societal values in every interaction over the course of the day.
I take great pride in our school community and the opportunities we provide for students to be involved in all aspects of school life. Leadership opportunities exist in our residential program, student government, student activities, admission, alumni and development, athletics and in other aspects of school life.
Our success in supporting students and providing opportunities for growth and maturation comes from our commitment to our mission and core values. We seek to develop global citizens who respect and are responsible for others, themselves, and the community. The student handbook clearly articulates our expectations for behavior in the community and outlines a fair and consistent approach in which we allow students to learn from adolescent mistakes.
We encourage students to take risks, to step out of their comfort zone and to have fun. Take a look at pictures on this site from our Winter Carnival and our other traditions. We take our fun very seriously!
For current families and students, there is important information in all of our publications and on this website. For people just learning about Berkshire, I hope you will find the time to come visit us under the mountain!
