TBS Fund

WE ARE A 100% COMMUNITY! The Berkeley School is a Family School. Every teacher, every family, grandparents, alumni & friends across both campuses support the TBS Fund each year and ensure our financial sustainability as we work toward TBS’s strategic goal of inclusivity in an environment of academic and teaching excellence. Our overall 6:1 teaching faculty:student ratio is visible everywhere and ensures TBS students are challenged academically, intellectually, socially and emotionally - to reach their full potential as learners and human beings. 2017-18 pledges and gifts may be fulfilled through June 30, 2018. Our Tax ID: 94-1571768. Every gift matters to every student. Please make yours now. MAKE A GIFT

Family Association

We have an amazing community here at TBS, made up of parenting adults, extended family, school staff, educators, and others in the community who want to support the vision of TBS by igniting curious minds, awakening generous hearts, and engaging a changing world. The TBS Family Association (the FA) organizes activities, services, and fundraisers throughout the year. It is our goal that every family has an opportunity to participate, so we can better serve our children and school community, while meeting and spending time with each other. PARTNER WITH US! 


The Hub (the TBS version of Berkeley Parents Network) is an online environment to discuss topics that might be of interest to other TBS families and to use as a marketplace for items and services within our community. We use the Hub to share information on topics that are not directly related to school. Someone may make a post because they need a house-sitter, or a recommendation for a new dentist, or wants to sell their dining room table. If you haven't already, check it out! BECOME A MEMBER

The Wrap Party

The Wrap Party is our annual end-of-year celebration under the stars and often called the party of the year. This casually elegant evening features live music, dancing, food truck fare, and just enough irreverent humor to keep you on your toes when you’re not dancing! All event and auction proceeds benefit TBS programs. Click the play button to see a short video of last year's "Out of This World" Wrap Party. It's a Wrap

Count Me In!

In 2015-16, we developed a Vision Statement for Science Education at TBS. We’ve led the way among East Bay independent schools in adopting Next Generation Science Standards for use in planning curriculum and assessing student learning, and our teachers have worked closely with BaySci to ensure that those standards form the backbone of our hands-on, experiential science lessons. We’re excited to continue our work in both science and technology — and we need your support! We want to raise $25,000 to further fund science and technology at TBS. Your 100% tax-deductible gift will fund science-specific professional development for our teachers, instructional materials that align with Next Generation Science Standards, MacBooks for our classrooms, and Chromebooks for our kids.
