"On behalf of Berkshire's Board of Trustees, THANK YOU!

In the words of Maya Angelou, 'When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.' Our Berkshire campus is filled with happy, healthy, budding young minds who are skillfully guided, nurtured and educated by a dedicated faculty and staff. This idyllic life under the Mountain is made possible through the cheerful generosity of Berkshire’s families, alumni and friends. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would like to express our heartfelt thanks and gratitude. We are one Berkshire family and all blessed by our common love of the majestic Berkshire School, set among the hills."

Tony Amolo ’13 Science Teacher, Coach, House Head, Class of ’57 Faculty Award

"I am honored to receive the Class of ’57 Faculty Award which helps me continue to do my best to improve as a teacher and give back to Berkshire School. I would not be the educator I am today if not for the Berkshire faculty that supported me as a student and the continued support I have from my colleagues today."

"Berkshire School offers me so many opportunities, including sports, advanced academic classes, and a space for me to explore my passion. Coming from a country where education is scarce, especially for girls, my dream is to better the lives of many young girls who are going through hard times back home. Thank you for giving me a hand in fulfilling my dream."

"I’m grateful for the amazing relationships I’ve built with my international friends. Under the Mountain, we are very fortunate to have people from all around the world here to learn from and hear about their experiences from their own countries. I never would have thought I would have friends from Bermuda to Austria, and more! Berkshire’s community would not be the same without the rich diversity of students."
