BERLIN HIGH SCHOOL
The full course of instruction extends through a period of thirteen years, each year constituting one grade. An extra preparatory term is included for pupils promoted to the High School Department at the end of the winter term.
The first three years of this course constitute the first, second and third primary grades; the second three constitute the first, second and third Intermediate grades; the seventh and eighth constitute the first and second Grammar grades; the ninth year and the extra term is designed as the Preparatory course; while the last four years constitute the first, second, third and fourth High School grades.
A separate three years course for High School, designated as the English or Scientific Course, has been prepared for the accommodation of those pupils who have not the time to pursue the full course of study, and who do not wish to take the languages.
The regular course of study is designed to meet the wants of the pupils in the natural order of development. The pupils are classed according to their advancement, and are promoted whenever they show, by their daily work and by examination, that they are prepared for higher grades.
Important as are the physical and intellectual training of children, any course of instruction which includes these only, must be, and is, fatally defective. Embrace, therefore, every opportunity to impart moral instruction, and keep the closest watch over your pupils not only in school, but during the recess and intermission. Endeavor to develop in them all the nobler faculties of the mind. Let your dealings with them be characterized by love and an earnest desire to do them good. Be what you would have them become.
