Excellent experience thus far with having children at BCS for 4 years now. As of late, administration special services. and the leadership has done a terrific job with communication, improvements and creating an atmosphere where the children can develop socially and academically. The community is very supportive of the school and the parent association and involvement at the school is first class. Having one of our children as a special needs student at the school, we are comfortable and confident that his best interest is being met and appreciate the open line of communication with the teachers.

Negative not a warm welcome atmosphere. Very cold administration. Home and school are all alike. Must fit in. Not well suited for a working Mother’s.

Excellent. I don't understand the great school ratings. This school was an 8 / 10 when we moved to the area and, along with most of the other schools, has fallen to a lower rating as the GreatSchools rating system has changed. Ultimately the education and staff are phenomenal. If you look into the factors bringing the school down they relate in areas of diversity, lower income students, etc. Not that these areas are unimportant, but they pull the score much lower than should be the case for the educational experience offered. All-in-all, this school should not be a lower or equal rating to Clementon or surrounding schools, and I still believe is a sold 7-8 of 10. I went to Elementary/Middle School in Cherry Hill at schools that are highly rated and my son's educational experience is equal to, if not exceeding, the education I received at those schools.

My experience at BCS has been a very positive one. Berlin is a community that is very involved in the school community. There are so many amazing opportunities for the families to be involved with their child’s learning throughout the school day and during the many special events held after school. As with everything, there may be problems that arise, but we work to solve those problems - the teachers and staff, the families, and the community - together.
