Our Story


Ecole Bilingue de Berkeley is located in the heart of South-West Berkeley, a vibrant historic residential neighborhood where landmark companies coexist with dynamic new start-ups. The school is located across from the Berkeley Bowl West grocery store, and about half a mile away from the I-80 Ashby exit.
