DISTRICT MISSION STATEMENT
The MISSION of the Berkley Public Schools is to provide each student with the values, knowledge and skills needed to reach his or her full potential, maximize achievement and show responsibility in interacting with others in our diverse society. Berkley students will learn that accountability earns respect and that respect leads to dignity. We will create a learning environment in which each child is provided with many opportunities to become lifelong learners, to solve problems, and encouraged to think creatively. Berkley Public Schools are committed to partnering with parents and families through open communication and cooperation between all members of the learning community: students, parents/families, and staff/administration.
