These are truly unprecedented times, and Berkeley Carroll has responded to this moment in history by remaining true to our mission. We are resolute that colossal change is needed to mitigate the ills of racism, bias, and inequity that pervades our society. We continue to re-examine and catapult our curriculum and practices forward to ensure our school continues to be culturally responsive and innovative. As an educational institution, we are doing the work and will continue to ask ourselves the following questions in order to be truly effective: "What did we miss?, What isn’t working?, Who haven’t we served? What do we need to implement?, How can we be better?”
Berkeley Carroll is committed to innovation. At every level of our school we continually ask the question, “How can we be better?” Whether it is about adding to our academic program, combating racism and other forms of oppression, increasing our faculty, or improving our facilities, we act decisively, thoughtfully, and quickly.
In meeting our mission of creating critical, ethical, and global thinkers we look for our students to develop individual voices. We want our students to take charge of their learning and be active learners, problem solvers, and collaborators.
Berkeley Carroll is truly a city school, and since we are located in one of the most exciting neighborhoods in New York City, we look to take advantage of all that it offers. Our Brooklyn campus stretches across Park Slope and our modern facilities support the full range of our academic, artistic, and athletic endeavors. We encourage interested families to sign up for tours of our academic buildings, Athletic Center, and Performing Arts Center. In Fall 2017 we added new libraries, state of the art science labs, and a most exciting Beta lab. With an increased emphasis on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math), this new space will be used for students unique experiments, research, and cutting edge work in all areas.
Our school is dynamic and our strength is that every one of our students is seen and appreciated. The strong, positive bonds between teachers and students are the cornerstone of a Berkeley Carroll education.
Equipped with the skills they learn at Berkeley Carroll our students are well prepared for success in college and beyond. All of us at Berkeley Carroll feel very fortunate to be a part of such a vibrant intellectual community and celebrate the diverse perspectives and backgrounds of each of its members.
