Our mission at the Berlin Middle School/High School PTO is to promote and foster communications between our constituents. This includes all members of our communities, parents, teachers, and the administration. Our PTO aims to organize and promote fundraising and community events which will deepen our Mountaineer spirit and pride while enriching the lives of our children through education, social and developmental experiences.
