Other than the rules and uniforms and whatnot, Berean is unlike any other private (or public) school. Because the high school has little over 100 students, it’s a family. The lunchroom (yes, lunchroom, there’s no cafeteria) is home to two refrigerators, one for the boys' lunches and one for the girls'. Gender segregation, you say? Believe me, it's for good reason. The ladies' fridge is clean and bright...while the guys' is moldy and smells like death.
Each Monday morning the entire high school gathers for family council, a time for everyone to share announcements and, occasionally, sort through the lost-and-found bin and return all the unclaimed items to their mortified owners.
Daily life at Berean is completely unpredictable. One day, your Spanish class will be pulling pranks on the teacher (hiding behind the door and, upon her entrance, pelting her with plastic vegetables!) or competing in "review games" (running around the building chanting world capitals) or playing hide-and-go-seek in calculus. Luckily, all (or most) of the teachers are very laid-back, and while they demand good work they also enjoy a good joke or two. In fact, most students will tell you that the community at Berean is what makes it worthwhile.
