The Sky’s the Limit!
Hello, my name is John Capuano and I am honored to serve as the Dean of Students at Berkeley Intermediate. While this is my first year in the Ferguson Florissant School District, I have worked in public education for many years as a teacher, instructional coach, and administrator. I look forward to supporting our scholars to ensure they are achieving at the highest level possible and taking the necessary steps to be successful. In my free time, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and reading with my daughter. It's wonderful to be part of the Berkeley family and it's always a great day to be a bulldog!
