    "BHS is racially diverse. Unfortunately, the parent involvement is primarily from the white middle class so I do not feel all students are represented equally with their needs. Also, the teachers vary tremendously in their quality making the education quality very hit and miss."

    "Some are very, very good. However, we have also had teachers who disappear and leave the class to be taught by substitutes for 1/2 the year. It is a mixed bag"

    "Diversity is key to the life of Berkeley High, and the teachers do reflect this statement as well. There are brilliant teachers, some of the smartest people I've met, teaching AP classes. But on the flip side there are teachers who have lost their touch with their audience in their years of teaching. Lectures are dull and almost seem like they're for the exclusive benefit of the teachers themselves. I'm specifically referring to the long-withstanding teachers of the math department. Most math classes require textbook readings to learn the material. Luckily, there's a steady influx of new enterprising math teachers that teach effectively. As for the English and History teachers, they're Ivy Alums with incredible ability to teach. Their knowledge isn't textbook nor is it 2-Dimensional. It's intuitive and flexible and make's it easier on the students."
