Vision 


Our vision is to become the first choice of education for our families- where all students, regardless of ethnicity or socioeconomic status, are engaged in a rich academic education in a family oriented environment, which is focused on the needs of each child, to enable them to be college and career ready.

Mission


The mission of Berewick Elementary School is to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to obtain success in college and future careers.   We will lead students to take responsibility for their learning by providing them with a diversified curriculum and a safe and positive environment that fosters open mindedness, character and creativity.  Our end result will be students that are fully prepared to compete successfully in the global economy.

Motto


Bobcatstrong-Whatever it takes!
