Student Tour Guide Testimonies

Zach '18

I play three sports at Berwick. I play soccer in the fall, basketball in the winter, and lacrosse in the spring. I am part of the math team as well as the student government for my grade. I also play soccer for Seacoast United outside of school in the spring.
What makes Berwick special is the sense of community you feel there. Because Berwick is a smaller school, you personally know almost everyone in the high school including faculty members. This familiarity helps create strong bonds throughout the student body.
I am happy that I chose Berwick because I feel that it has made me a very well rounded person. At Berwick, you have exposure to sports, art, music, and various extra curricular activities that cover a wide range of interests.
A misconception about Berwick is that it has a homogenous population, but in reality, the student body is very diverse with people from different backgrounds and with different interests.
I like being a head tour guide because I want to help bring people to Berwick. I think that Berwick is a great school, and I like that I am able to advertise it to students and parents looking at Berwick.
