BERKELEY'S ACADEMIC PROGRAMME At The Berkeley Institute, all students must work hard to achieve an acceptable academic standard. The quest for academic excellence begins in the classroom and continues at home where skills learnt at school are tested and reinforced. We ask that parents support and help us in our efforts to ensure that their children meet this standard by setting aside sufficient time for homework each night. At least 2-3 hours of homework and study each night will ensure success in each student’s educational endeavours. ATTENDANCE POLICY All students must arrive at school by 8:30 a.m. and should go directly to their first period class on the bell at 8:40 a.m. Regular attendance as well as punctuality to school and all classes are important habits of successful Berkeleyites. If a student is absent for any reason, the school is to be informed by telephone on the same day and confirmation of the reason for absence provided in a written More

Bridge is a partnership game. Trust, communication and patience are the essential attributes of winning at bridge. For a student, the strategy part teaches them math, logic, and interpretive skills. The partnership part teaches them to respect and trust their partner.
It's an elegant game, full of strategy and tactics. It's part science, part math, part logic, part reason. But a huge component of bridge is also very human. This melding of the former with the latter is what sets bridge apart, not only from other card games, but also from board games like chess. While computers can now routinely beat all but a handful of chess grandmasters, they can't come close to outplaying the world's finest bridge players. Why is this? Because computers can understand math, but they can't understand people.
