About Our School
At Phillip O. Berry Academy of Technology,
School Information brochure
We are concerned with what students know and can demonstrate, not merely what's been "covered in class." We have standards for each program that specify what students should know and be able to do. We encourage all students to reach for these high standards at a pace that is appropriate to their individual needs. Students who require extended learning time or specialized accommodations or modifications to achieve learning will receive them. Students, who reach mastery of the standards more quickly, move on to the next set of standards whenever they have demonstrated proficiency.
Additionally, Phillip O. Berry Academy of Technology requires that students successfully complete a minimum of four (4) years of rigorous mathematics courses, a rigorous, sequenced program in a career/technical education pathway, a senior research demonstration project, and an experiential learning senior internship. These requirements exceed those of the State of North Carolina for student graduation.
These are ambitious but reasonable standards --- and our expectation is that they are reachable for each and every student who completes four years in our program. In the case of students who participate for less than the full program, a different set of standards and expectations must be the norm.
All of the Berry Academy students are trained to become good digital citizens. Being a good digital citizen is more than knowing your way around the web. It's about connecting and collaborating in ways you didn't even know were possible. Our students to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly in our digital world.
