    "Horrible right wing Christian school. AVOID"

    "Berean Christian high school has been riddled with problems the past few years. First, the Lacrosse incident 3 years ago that caused horrible damage to a student at that time. Someone should have been arrested, but Berean covered it up in order to project a good image. This year (2016) a coach was arrested for having sexual relations with minors. Parents received little communication regarding their bad hiring choice and how this Berean employee slipped through the cracks. Staff turn over is high and the school is in debt which makes it difficult for teachers to stay. This year, teachers left mid year. Berean "highlights" the student retreat they have in the first week of the school year. We went last year and came home infested with fleas and my teens back was covered in bed bug bites. It was disgusting. The school has a right wing Christian philosophy and its practices are inconsistent among the student body. There is heavy judgement from Dr Noriega, the school principal and his staff if parents are remotely out of line with his philosophies. Policy decisions are made sporadically and inconsistently. Students are always presumed "guilty" without the benefit of the doubt. Its a scary place for teens who make mistakes. Berean refuses to address the bullying issues they have at their school. They prefer to bury their head in the sand. The school is in a nice neighborhood in Walnut Creek but the school itself is run down. They had communicated to parents years ago that there would be extensive renovations and improvements. None of this has happened. We later found out that the schools debt makes it impossible to upgrade the school in the manner in which the principal promised. This schools tuition is cheaper than other area private schools. To sum it up, you get what you pay for and Berean comes up short. Highly recommend that parents find other schools where teens wont live in judgement and be stifled."

    "The teachers here genuinely care not only about the students academically, but also their well-being in general. They provide a caring, knowledgeable environment that allow the students to feel taken care of while at school. Most of the teachers have extensive knowledge in the field they teach which creates a better classroom experience for all the students. Each teacher is always willing help students with various problems ranging from school to home life."

    "I really love Berean. It's a good academic school with traditional Christian Values and a great atmosphere. The courses are challenging and interesting, and the teachers take an interest in each student because of the small class sizes. The students are also very welcoming to newcomers."
