Being a Bertschi Parent

At Bertschi we live our values of integrity, inclusiveness, respect, and diversity every day. We believe children learn best when they are safe and known in a community that values their perspectives. Our teachers believe that kids’ ideas are important and we value their input. We know that experiences of all kinds encourage us to engage our differences and make us stronger contributors to our local and global community.

We offer a wide variety of opportunities for families to volunteer and share their expertise, interests, skills, and cultural heritage with us. Our teachers warmly welcome volunteers into their classrooms as a way to engage with the school, and we invite our families to help
in the library, serve on our Board of Trustees, sit on committees, join the Parent Council, and more.

We understand families have varying abilities to find time to volunteer and we aim to find ways for everyone to help if desired.


In the Words of Our Families

"Our family has been at Bertschi for seven years, and we continue to feel incredibly grateful to be a part of this vibrant, caring, bright learning community."

"Bertschi School is one of the most thoughtful and supportive communities to be a part of."

"I appreciate how Bertschi School values every child and every family's identity, point of view, and uniqueness."


Volunteering

The gift of time is generosity in action

Financial Support

Invest in our mission to ensure our future

We believe volunteers are priceless, and that you can open up a world of teaching opportunities at school. Through volunteering, our students directly benefit from the active engagement, enthusiasm, and talent of our parents, who live the values we teach in the classroom.

In addition to classroom support, volunteers help fuel our Board of Trustees, committees, Parent Council, and library.

Because tuition does not cover the full cost of educating Bertschi students, we aim for 100% parent participation in the Bertschi Fund each year. The Bertschi Fund is our only fundraiser–we do not host auctions, bake sales, or car washes.

Our Endowment funds support our mission far into the future, creating investment earnings that ensure our school's long-term sustainability.
