Learning By Discovery
Whether writing a poem, composing a piece for Orff instruments in music class, choreographing a dance with classmates, or creating abstract collages in the art studio, our young students joyfully express their creativity using a multitude of media
Engaging & Supportive Community
Our students start and end each day with the same core group – a homeroom community where they can share classroom successes and challenges, collaborate on projects, ask questions, and sometimes simply catch their breath and get started on homework
Our Spirit of Inquiry
Walk these halls and you will find something special – students investiga- ting, experimenting, performing, sharing insights and perspectives and asking questions – getting excited about complex differential equations to fine arts
The World is Your Classroom
Our international exchange programs, partnerships with high schools across the United States, international trips, and affiliations with leading universities create special opportunities for you to learn beyond our classrooms
Prepare to Succeed
By the time our students graduate, they have developed into writers, scientists, mathematicians, musicians, historians, artists, and athletes. Along the way they choose from well over a hundred course offerings, a dozen athletic teams, and a myriad of opportunites in clubs and after-school activities
Engage Your Curiosity
The universe is made up of questions – some fundamental, some monumental, and some that are really tough to answer. At Berkeley Carroll we tackle these big ideas head-on, wrestling with challenging concepts and their complex details every day

Speaking on behalf of her fellow 5th graders, Sophie Gould told all those assembled for Middle School Closing Ceremonies on June 12, "Even though I'd been told during the summer leading up to 5th grade how much I'd grown, when I started 5th grade I realized how much growing I had yet to do." Her heartfelt speech was followed by that of 6th grader Henry Sailer who told the audience about the highlights of 6th grade (music, Spanish, and science). "The people in 6th grade," he said, "are lucky to have so much." Seventh grader Graham Stodolski looked to the 8th graders in the audience and told them, "You've set the bar high, but the Class of 2019 is up to the challenge!" His confidence, he said, stemmed from the fact that in 7th grade, he and his cohorts had learned how to argue proficiently. Capping off the student speeches came the words of the 8th grade representative, Ellie Pike. Speaking of the friendships and personalities that pervaded the grade, she likened it to pieces fitting together in one big jigsaw puzzle. "Today is a triumphant day!" she said, speaking on behalf of all her classmates, their parents, and their teachers.

The integrated project that was part of the second grade subway study involved all three classes "creating" a subway station and car. They made a Metrocard booth and vending machine, a turnstile, and a car, complete with cautionary signage, Poetry in Motion, and upcoming stop indication. Camille Harrison and Phaedra Mastrocola were involved in the integrated component of the project.
