“Every student has the superpower of striving for success!”
Welcome to the Berkeley Terrace Elementary School 2022-2023 school year, where we are building our community one student at a time. We believe that every student has a special superpower that will secure their success, and our jobs as educators and educational leaders is to ensure that every child rises to the full level of their ability and unleashes the superpower within.
At Berkeley Terrace Elementary School, we provide our scholars with 21 st Century skills and competencies in academics, arts, social emotional learning and linguistic communications. We are a bilingual education center focusing on Spanish and Haitian Creole, and we are uncompromising in our focus on rigor, student engagement, and academic success. Our determination is to create self-directed learners who are exposed to diverse experiences, engaged in the optimized use of technology, and coached by caring servant-leader adults determined to maximize their potential.
We endeavor to partner with our parents and community to build the hopes and expand the dreams of our students. We believe that our students are the future architects, engineers, scientists, inventors, and leaders of the next age in human development. Therefore, our goals are clear. Firstly, to champion the cause of providing a thorough and efficient education to our children that adequately prepares them for college, career, and the real world. Secondly, to inspire, motivate, and serve our students and community. Thirdly, to support our families with the care, compassion, and empathy that derives from passionate and devoted servant leaders.
Thanks to our diligent and hardworking staff, Berkeley Terrace Elementary School remains a beacon of educational light in our historic neighborhood, and we look forward with eager anticipation for high academic achievement in the 2022-2023
school year. We believe every student has the superpower of striving for success!
“Having a superpower has nothing to do with the ability to fly or jump, or superhuman strength. The truest superpowers are the ones we all possess: willpower, integrity, and most importantly, courage.” ~ Jason Reynolds
