Describe: We are a close-knit community with a fantastic staff that provides individual attention to our students. Teachers leave and return; graduates come and teach here; people know one another. We have a comprehensive program but our students are not anonymous. We focus on the whole student. All of the things parents want for their kids and their piece of mind is here. We are truly grateful for our amazing parent group, The Berthoud Bash, for raising thousands of dollars towards our feeder schools in the areas of technology, curriculum and student support. We have outstanding volunteer parents who give hundreds of hours and resources to our clubs, sports and academic programs.

We consistently have the best graduation rate and the lowest drop-out rate in our district and with many of our surrounding schools. Our No Place for Hate, Peer Support Counselors and Peer Buddy programs are very successful and our students represent our school and community in amazing ways. Our Robotics program rivals any in the world as they have competed and won at the State, National and World levels while being one of the smallest high schools in those competitions due to great sponsors, parents and students.
