Dear Prospective Berry Families,
We are honored that you are considering Berry Elementary School Environmental Science Magnet for your student. For the past fifty years, Berry students have been exposed to outdoor education and embraced a love for the Environment. Berry students enjoy the best of core educational opportunities in the general education classroom with our exceptional teaching staff and work with Magnet teachers daily to develop strong ethics which build students to be excellent communicators, advocates for environmental conservation and ecology, and strategic problem solvers. Fostering student growth in these areas, empowers the student to let his/her inner leader shine!
The Magnet program at Berry is truly a school-wide initiative. Every educator and faculty member on the campus plays an essential role in the development of your child. We teach students the power of positive, expressive communication. We enable students by encouraging them to question the world around them. We nurture students by facilitating their interpersonal skills. We motivate students by making school an engaging and uplifting environment to learn in. We challenge students as we provide rigorous learning opportunities and guide students to achieve more than they thought possible.
Berry is a GREAT place to be!
Our Magnet program was recently recognized as a 2013 Magnet School of Distinction by Magnet Schools of America. The prestige of the honor places us among a cohort of schools across the nation that purposefully meet student academic needs and beyond. Additionally, on behalf of Air Alliance Houston, the Staff and Faculty were awarded the 2013 Clear Horizons award for "their dedication to educating Houston's youth about the importance of environmental stewardship and preservation."
Our new building (built in 2011) is Certified LEED Silver. The certification applauds the building features and the programs that we have for the delicate footprint that we leave on the environment. Our classrooms promote healthy learning as the students are bathed in 90% sunlight in every classroom. The energy and resource efficiency of the structure supports our Environmental focus and makes successful connections to the environment easy for students.
