Berkeley High School. Did we make a mistake?
My kid is enrolling as a freshman at Berkeley High. He previously attended a small private school and I was initially very excited for him to have public school experience. I like the idea of all kinds of kids in one place and happy about the diversity. But then I tried to enroll him. And seriously everything that could go wrong did. Every step of the way the school did not do what they were supposed to do. And now he has no schedule. And apparently they haven't even hired his counselor yet? Which is super scary because we are new and I don't want someone new as his counselor. The school is terrible with providing information in a timely manner. And it is so much stress. I went to public school and I know not every school is this bad. Can someone who is there now in post-Covid times tell me, should I rethink my options? If they are this bad so far I can't imagine going through several years of this with multiple children. I'm really getting cold feet.
