Our School


Berkeley Russian School — Klyaksa (Ink Spot) — is a non-profit Russian immersion school offering challenging academic classes for students ages 3 to 16. Our classes are small and our experienced teachers deliver material tailored to meet the individual needs of each student. The school offers multiple levels of Russian Language, Literature and Math — along with a wide array of extracurricular programs, including Art, Art History, Chess, Geography, Physics, Biology/Zoology, Astronomy, and others. Students excel academically while mastering the Russian language.

On Sundays we offer a unique program for children aged 3 and older. Classes are fun and developmentally appropriate and form the foundation of language learning and academic success in future years.

Over the years we have developed into an active and mutually inspiring community of teachers, parents and students. Come join us!
