A college prep school in Tampa, FL. By far the most expensive and hardest school in the area, and its very hard to get accepted too. Sports are getting a lot better, and there's a huge really nice campus. 95 percent of the kids have tons of money with huge mansions and nice cars. There's specific groups of people in each grade who just get fucking trashed every weekend. Could arguably have the best parties out of all the private schools in the area, cause Jesuit/Academy are lame pussies, Tampa Prep is where you go if you can't afford Berkeley or didn't get in, CCC is just too far away and they talk so much shit, and TC is for mexicans. If you go there, you can pretty much get into any school you want too. There are way more hot girls than there are guys, but most everyone just hooks up with everyone.
Random Tampa Kid: Oh where do you go to school?
Berkeley Student: Berkeley Prep
Random Tampa Kid: So you're rich right?
Founded in 1960, Berkeley Preparatory School is a coeducational college preparatory day school, pre-kindergarten through grade 12, serving the Tampa Bay area. Our Lower Division is comprised of grades Pre-K through 5, our Middle Division includes grades 6 through 8, and our Upper Division is comprised of grades 9 through 12. Traditionally, 100% of Berkeley's graduates continue their education at four-year institutions. In 2004, 74% entered out-of-state colleges and universities. Berkeley's total enrollment is 1192, with 499 students in grades 9-12. Scholarship funding is available.
The 64 acre campus is located in the Town and Country suburb of Tampa. It consists of classrooms, a fine arts wing, two libraries, general convocation rooms, physical education fields, a pre-kindergarten and kindergarten wing, and administrative offices for Lower, Middle and Upper Divisions.
Our athletes can participate in two gymnasiums, a wrestling/gymnastics room, a weightlifting room, a rock-climbing wall, a stadium (for track meets, football and soccer games), baseball and softball diamonds, tennis courts, and a junior Olympic swimming pool.
Our arts program was enhanced in 1997 with the addition of the 634 seat performing arts center which also includes a gallery for our visual arts displays, a flex studio for both dance recitals and small drama productions, dressing rooms, and an orchestra pit.
Berkeley Prep is a fine institution of higher learning.
