    "I spent my entire high school career at Berkmar High, and the experience was unique.I will start with the classes. The honor and Advance Placement classes were better. The teachers treated their students as if they were young adults which we were. I liked that as you went up a grade, that the teachers would give me more and more respect. By the time I was in 12th grade, my teachers were no longer treating me like a child. I admired that about the school. However, the police at the school simply did not care. Fights would break out, and the APs would have to stop the students. The police would just sip their coffee and watch. Those cops were there to collect a paycheck and nothing more. On a lighter note, the custodians and cafeteria ladies were the sweetest people at the whole school.They were nicest people I have ever met, but they got no respect. Students would leave their breakfast, something lunch ladies prepared every morning before at least 6 am, everywhere that it was possible."

    "Berkmar High School is a very diverse, inclusive school. Students of all backgrounds can find their niche, and their individual, unique voices become unified when they're representing their school - whether it be sporting events or beta conventions. Academically, there could be improvements. Teachers should push students further to foster their education and college readiness. Many students don't go on to post-secondary institutions because they do not have teachers or parents telling them they're capable of achieving higher education."

    "At first glance, many people would claim that Berkmar is one of the worst school in Gwinnett County. The 0-10 football team, the 70% graduation rate, and the constant fights only add to that reputation. However, if anything Berkmar is one of the most diverse schools in the state. When you walk into a classroom, you see Hispanics, African Americans, Asians, and much more interacting like a family. We treat each other with respect; no one is ever discriminated or judged base on the color skin or where they came from. Not to mention the outstanding teachers that are trying to make Berkmar a better place. They understand that the circumstances of the student and try to help with the best of their abilities. Berkmar is located in a generally poor district. Many of my classmates are forced to drop out because they have no other choice but to help their parents bring food to the table. As a result, Berkmar is actually much better school than most reviews say."

    "I honestly couldn't wish for a better school. It's so diverse, the teachers are so nice (depending on who you have, but overall most of them are nice) and I personally think you have to truly not try or care to hate this school.."
