  • Overview:
  • DISTRICT BELIEFS AND VALUES

    All children can learn, we teach all children.

    All children deserve a quality education in a safe environment.

    All stake-holders are active listeners and learners.

    Everyone works collaboratively to attain maximum achievement.

    We build relationships on respect for others and self.

    We value our community’s diversity and its differences while embracing our commonalities.

    We hold ourselves accountable to achieve high standards through research-based instruction.

    Education is a partnership between the school, family and our community.

  • History:
  • Berkshire Elementary School opened its doors in August of 2002 to 630 students. In 2006, Berkshire Elementary School was recognized as a California
    Distinguished School by the State of California, Department of Education. Ten years later Berkshire is considered one of the largest elementary schools in Kern County serving over 1,000 students ages 4-13. Our students come from a very culturally diverse community where 13 different home languages, other than English are spoken.

    Berkshire School receives Title I, School Improvement Program (SIP), and Economic Impact Aid-Limited English proficient (EIA-LEP) funds from the state, and Title V funds from the federal government. While Title I monies fund our reading intervention programs, EIA-LEP funds are used to assist identified English Language Learners. Title V monies enhance the library and media program and SIP monies enhance our instructional programs and fund our Art Specialist. A standards-based curriculum and sound assessment strategies provide the foundation for continuous improvement of student performance and school programs. Students will leave Berkshire Elementary School with a positive attitude toward learning, a strong foundation in basic skills, and the ability to meet future academic challenges.
