Admissions » Welcome


Thank you for your interest in our school. We are an independent kindergarten through fifth grade school located in the heart of Berkeley. A leader in social and environmental justice issues, we are well known for a hands-on curriculum that promotes deep and intuitive learning. A solid and enduring core philosophy - a rich academic and arts program, close ties between families and school, and a strong sense of community - are the hallmarks of a Berkwood Hedge education.

Come see for yourself what makes our school so special and such a thriving learning environment.
We offer tours of our school from October through January.

We look forward to meeting you!

Dedicated to academic excellence, EBISA represents a wide range of educational choices. Common to all is the commitment to establishing and maintaining a diverse population of families and students, including differences in race, nationality, culture, ethnicity, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, family structure, physical abilities and modes of learning.

Our shared goal for children is that they develop a passion for education along with a strong sense of self-esteem and value of diversity.
