支持, close-knit environment of Berkeley Hall provides for a successful transition from elementary to high school. We welcome applicants for our middle 年级s, six through eight.
Sixth through eighth 年级 applicants need to furnish an administrative confidential recommendation, two teacher confidential recommendations (English and Math), and a transcript from their current school. To assess their academic readiness, applicants must take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE). 一旦收到申请, we invite the applicant to take a student-led tour and meet with faculty members. We also ask parents to join us for an interview.
六年级的时候, students are split into two homerooms with two core teachers for 数学ematics, 语言艺术, 还有社会研究. They also continue Spanish in preparation for our junior high. Sixth 年级 is filled with engaging learning experiences starting with a three-day outdoor education trip that promotes teamwork and a positive approach to breaking through limitation. Students are challenged to become more independent and responsible in managing their work. Joint activities with our junior high and regular communication between teachers help prepare students for the move to seventh 年级.
Seventh 平地机s are well-supported by a caring faculty in the transition from a coreclassroom environment to five academic teachers, 多个教室, 储物柜,and appropriately higher expectations. 在两年的时间里, students become confident eighth-年级 graduates who take charge of their learning, 担当领导角色, and take pride in their school and themselves. As a result of this foundation, Berkeley Hall graduates thrive in their chosen high schools.
