* Berkeley Prep

“Berkeley Preparatory School chooses not to rank its graduating class because of the highly competitive nature of admission to Berkeley, the variety of academic backgrounds of our students, and the various points at which students may enter the school. Calculating a numeric rank that reflects the strengths and differences among students would not yield a fair or useful picture of a graduating class. Therefore, we choose to not recognize a Valedictorian or Salutatorian for each graduating class, yet celebrate the accomplishments of all of our graduates equally. We take great pride in the fact that 100 percent of every graduating class at Berkeley is accepted into a 4-year college or university.”
