Middle Division represents the transitional years in a student’s growth. At Berkeley, surrounded by every imaginable opportunity, students find a safe and nurturing place to explore and discover who they are and who they aspire to become. With an emphasis on English and math, we provide a strong framework for all other disciplines, including science, history, world language, visual and performing arts, religion, and physical education.
 
Collaborative learning opportunities within Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) are enhanced by our state-of-the-art fabrication studio, digital lab, and modern classrooms. We use the latest digital tools and methodologies – from MacBook Pro, CAD design and coding, to animation, music composition and video editing.
 
Our students are encouraged to be global thinkers and are required to take Spanish, French, Latin, or Chinese. All Middle Division students are also required to participate in band, orchestra, chorus, or bagpipes. Additionally, students take classes in studio art, design art and theatre.
 
The Middle Division offers more than 40 clubs and electives, including Debate, Forensics, Improvisation, First Lego League, Science Team, Buccaneer Bee Company, Guitar, Mythology, and Yearbook. On average, 85 percent of Middle Division students participate in at least one sport; many play numerous sports.
