Academically-oriented middle school? Private and public
Hi all. We are moving to Berkeley! So excited.
My 12 yr. old son (6th grade now) loves math and science so we are looking for the best school he might get into (both private and public.)
I've have heard The Berkeley School emphasizes personalized, high-quality education. I'd love feedback on The Berkeley School for STEM education. (I see it used to be a Montessori school and am worried they may not emphasize academics.) Are there other private schools that excel at teaching STEM subjects?
I see there are 3 public middle schools which we would be assigned to depending on which zone we live in. We are pretty flexible on where we live so I'd love feedback on which public middle school has a great math and science program, in particular. (I'm assuming that middle school also has other great programs as well but we are particularly interested in math and science.)
Thank you so much for your honest feedback- we really value this resource! Karen
