Welcome, new Cragmont families!

Welcome to Cragmont School!  We are so excited to have you join our outstanding Cragmont community.  You are now part of a thriving community committed to making our school an awesome place to be.  We are an active, innovative, engaged, and inclusive community of staff, students, and families, all housed in a beautiful building with expansive views of the bay.   


As our mission statement says, we are dedicated to providing an outstanding education for all students while laying the foundation for each child’s personal success. Our programs combine academic rigor and intellectual challenge with strong support for students of all abilities.  We are committed to a safe and supportive environment that includes all students.  Our enriching curriculum includes science, art, music, P.E., dance, and trips to our impressive and beautiful library.  


With pandemic protocols in place at this time, our start and ending times for next school year have not been determined yet.  As soon as this is known, we will post it on our website.  Traditionally, Cragmont has been a late start school, starting at 9:00am, with Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarteners being dismissed at 2:15.  These times are approximations due to our new school protocols. 


In addition to our school day, Berkeley Unified School District runs an afterschool program at Cragmont School called LEARNS.  Our LEARNS program offers academic time for homework and tutoring by LEARNS Instructional Technicians, enrichment classes, and supervised play.  Payment for this strong and enriching program is based on a sliding scale.  With pandemic protocols, our LEARNS program will look a little different than it did at this time last year.  We will still offer afterschool care, but our program, ending times, and cost will be determined at a later date.  We will post information on our website as soon as it becomes available.
