Principal's Message

Principal, Berkshire Jr/.Sr. High School

Dear Badger Community,

As we continue though the year I reflect on all that has happened all around us from within our building to the world around us and one word keeps coming to my mind again and again: PRIDE. Through all that we as a school (and a community) have been through, we have done it together! We have proven above all else that we are BADGERS. We are; strong, relentless, cunning, noble, and wise. We have taken on each challenge as they have come and persevered and we will continue to do so. 

As we move into the Spring and some of the restrictions begin to let up, let us keep our focus on the goal at hand and finish the school year strong. We have so many supports in place for our students and their loved ones, please do not hesitate to reach out, if we are unable to help directly we will put you in touch with those who can. 

Even through a global pandemic we have earned rankings on the AP Honor School and the US News and World Report Best US High Schools all the while maintaining social and athletic opportunities since our doors opened in September.    

I would like to thank our great Berkshire Schools Community that continues to support us without fail and a top flight staff that has weathered this storm with grit, we are all truly in this together. We will continue to send out updates to students and their loved ones as warranted. A great place to keep up with information (and some musings from time to time) is my Twitter page - @MJKingMEd 

Being a Badger matters. When your schedule is busy and time seems short, reach out for help if necessary. In the meantime, Keep Calm and Badger On!




Michael King, Principal
