  Middle School
 
Berkshire and Derby middle schools offer exemplary programs for students in grades 6-8. With nearly 800 students in each building, there are many opportunities for young teens to explore their skills and talents through academic competitions, mentorships, musical groups, dramatic productions, intramural and interscholastic athletics, clubs and activities, and enrichment programs such as the A & E program at Berkshire (Activities & Enrichment) and the Explore program at Derby.  At the same time, middle school students receive individualized attention from teams of teachers dedicated to their success and guidance counselors who remain with each class through its three years. The counselors also facilitate support groups for students, sponsor parent education programs and help introduce new families to the school community.

Technology is infused in the middle school curriculum through our district-wide !gnite program and Birmingham Covington School Engage Program. Students use technology daily in the classroom and in their school media center to seek answers to questions, connect with experts and peers throughout the world, and explore answers to questions in every subject. 

Both BPS middle school facilities have new media centers, science laboratories, computer laboratories, engineering technology areas and classroom updates. Media centers are equipped with electronic resources and a video distribution system connected to all classrooms. Each middle school classroom has three computer stations, a large teaching/presentation monitor and Internet access.  Additional improvements included infrastructure upgrades to HVAC, along with upgrades to mechanical and electrical systems, including lighting. Classrooms and corridors were updated with new windows, floors, walls, casework, as required.

Both schools have improved science labs and better spaces for music. Spaces for art, skills for living, gym and locker rooms were also upgraded, as needed. Derby’s administrative offices were renovated to improve  visibility and Berkshire gained improved traffic design to separate car, bus and pedestrian traffic.
