Herrick Hospital

The Berkeley Unified School District provides a classroom teacher to adolescents ages 12 to 18 at Herrick Hospital in Berkeley. The students study literature, history, and visual art in addition to other subjects. Writing and drawing on themes of freedom, environmental justice, self-discovery, transformational love, ignorance, hatred, healing, and the universal preciousness of life, among many other topics, students find within themselves and their explorations gems of understanding that enrich everyone’s experience. Herrick Hospital is administered on the BIS campus.
