  • I attended Berry from 1951 until 1957. There I became interested in science, history, and geography. I drew on the blackboard what I imagined a computer would look like. Today, after traveling most of the world as an Electronics Engineer, I manage a group of people at Hewlett-Packard who configure, test, and repair industrial servers (computers). Thank you Mrs. Westfall (5th grade teacher), Mr. Walls (Principal), and all the other wondersul and supportive teachers who will forever live at Berry!

  • Berry has really made some amazing changes. The magnet program is really doing amazing things and the kids are loving science lab. They will be getting a new school next year as well. It should look really neat.

  • I am a former student at this school. This school is alright but they still need to improve some. They show everything and you wil learn things you had no idea about,but they need to give a little more homework to give practice and preperation for the future years. Thanks for everything BERRY!
