Providing quality personalized instruction for two decades, Berkeley Independent Study (BIS) acknowledges and welcomes each student’s personal, cultural and academic background. BIS is an option for all Berkeley High students who prefer one-on-one, weekly meetings with teachers. There is no opportunity to sit in the back of the classroom. Students at varying academic proficiencies thrive in our informal, relaxed environment. BIS students become critical thinkers and independent, lifelong learners.
