• Berwick
The Upper School is the culmination of the Berwick experience, where students’ achievement leads to strong results in higher education at colleges and universities. The demanding Upper School curriculum is organized around established academic disciplines, and rounded out by a variety of fine arts courses. Whether our students are in math or history class, they are encouraged to ask questions, form ideas and opinions, and build on acquired knowledge. Our students cultivate a more sophisticated understanding of topics through this method of learning.
 
What leads to academic success? There is not any one correct path each student must take; but certainly, there are common themes for achievement. Our most successful students interact with teachers and their peers in class. They take their course work seriously and invest critical time to ask the questions and challenge the answers. We teach our students to think analytically and critically, then apply their knowledge.
 
Berwick values and appreciates creative and imaginative thought within the experience. Students are provided the time and place to explore individual areas of passion or those topics covered in class. We are a division with incredibly diverse talents, and the determination to provide ‘useful knowledge’ to the leaders of tomorrow.
