Bergen County Technical High School - Teterboro Reviews

201 reviews
All Categories
Overall, the Bergen County Technical High School - Teterboro is not a bad school. The student body is diverse, there are many academic opportunities to pursue, and the classes prepare you well for AP tests.
But the school lacks any sort of student life. Outside of its classes, there is almost nothing going for the school. The clubs are a joke, the music program is sad, and don't even get me started about the school's "field."
And even the classes are sometimes unbearable. I'm not gonna say which teachers, but some teachers are so old that they can't even turn their computer on, some teachers do absolutely nothing in Spanish class and pick favorites, and some teachers just want to give students bad grades.
From my experience, the school only has such a good reputation because the students who come in are hard-workers. When hard-workers are put into an environment like this, they will still thrive, but will not be given the proper school life they deserve

I have been going to Bergen Tech for the last four years. I will definitely say that for anyone looking to challenge themselves academically, this school is definitely worth applying to. There are AP classes for just about every subject being offered as early as freshman year. For the most part, the teachers are great and know the material well, as well as offer extra help if necessary nearly every day. The school is unique in that it has "majors", such as computer science, business, engineering, law, fashion, and others. These classes provide a basic look at what a major has to offer to help a student decide if this is something they might be interested in. There is a large amount of extracurricular activities and sports available as well. Overall, the school is definitely worth attending if you are willing to work harder than the average HS student to stay on top of your academics.
My daughter attended BT, she excelled however she is a high achiever and would have excelled anywhere she attended. My son, also a high achiever is having a much better well rounded high school experience at our local high school. Quality of education is the same, material being covered is the same, as a matter of fact he often has to help his friends who attend the tech and academies schools. Also, as someone else stated in their review the administration seems to be accepting students with lower qualifications to improve the sports teams or as favors to people they know. My daughter attended a great college due to very high SAT scores not solely BT reputation. She also didn't learn anything from her major at BT. She did enjoy her time there, it's just not what you expect after all the hype. Try local public for a traditional experience it also positively impacts your community to stay local.
