    "I rcently finished 8th grade after spending my entire middle school here. When I was in 6th grade the school was pretty mediocre, the teachers could have been better, and a student's well being wasn't fully protected. After finished 8th grade, looking back the school had improved a lot. My Absolute favorite teaches were Mr. Collins, the band/study skills teacher, Mr. Goode, who teaches Invention & Innovation/woodshop, and Mrs. Wargo, the 8th grade honors english teacher. Police Officers were hired to keep the students safe, and while it may sound a little over-kill, it helped a lot more than a parent could ever see, even if a few of them probably should have stuck to busting actual criminals, and not little kids. There's plenty of after school activities and rewards for well behaved students, mostly dances and that sort of thing. The food, though, could still use some improvement."

    "I have two children that attend Berkeley. In both 7th and 8th grades. This school is one of the best schools that you can send your school to in this area. Berkeley has great leadership, (provided by its brilliant Principal) along with a great staff and a group of students who are always eager to learn. This is the type of school that can offer your child greater opportunities when the time comes to apply to high school. Also, by being encouraged to always Do The Right Thing, Berkeley is also a beacon in the community. It works with the local Univeristy (William & Mary) as well as othey local establishments. They build on very key social elements,such as character, integrity, values, respect for others as well as self. Love it!"

    "The teachers at Berkeley are professional, caring and expect high standards from their students. The music teacher is incredible. Mr Collins and is one of the best in our country. Even though alot of the after-school study programs are not as plentiful as they used to be the teachers seem to still extend themselves as helpers for excellence in the students grades. The principal Ms. Swan is very engaged and communicates very well with parents and children alike. Her follow-up is impeccable. She is a breath of fresh air and a credit to this school and community."

    "One star is very generous here! My child has horrible teachers, and has barely learned anything new this year. The staff of teachers don't even seem to like kids much less their jobs. Communication is poor with teachers and principals. This school has a young, unprepared principal and really needs someone more appropriate. Her biggest downfall is she wants to be friends with her staff and they take advantage of that daily. She seems to be clueless and trusts the teachers to always do the right thing. Calling her or teachers in times of need does nothing as you will never receive a callback. Worst school!! Trying to move out of district for next year. Will only stay if MAJOR changes are made. Don't enroll here unless it's the last option!"

    "After spending time in this school I don't know how any learning happens. Students are incredibly disrespectful, classrooms and hallways are out of control and teachers are apathetic. The administration seems to be more into pleasing people than running a successful school. Lip service doesn't get things done. I hear this school was absolutely wonderful just two years ago. If that's true then the current state of this school is a tragedy."
