Welcome picIt is my great pleasure and privilege to oversee the ongoing development of Berkeley Russian School into a diverse and inclusive community, which promotes academic excellence.

A good school cannot thrive without great teachers.  Our teachers are talented, dedicated, and experienced individuals, who create more effective ways to explore and share knowledge by reaching out to every student, stimulating their interest and enthusiasm.  It is my privilege to inspire and support them in their mission.

Similarly, a good school cannot thrive without the help and cooperation of dedicated parents.  Our parents, along with aiding and supporting their own children, volunteer their time and talents for the good of the whole BRS community.

As a result, our school is a unique place, which unites us through Russian language and culture, a deep respect for learning and a desire to pass on to our children a gift of our cultural heritage.

I encourage you to come visit us in person.  Visitors are welcome throughout the school year.  I would love to give you a tour of our school, tell you more about our classes, introduce you to our teachers and students, and answer any questions that you might have.

We welcome you to join the Berkeley Russian School family.
