Bergenfield High School is full of opportunities. They provide multiple Advancement Placement courses to get each student prepared for college. These courses as well as the Dual Enrollment courses especially are helpful when applying to college/university because you can send the credits! Sending these credits help new/current college students skip some first year classes to advance into their intended major courses. Providing these classes is very helpful because it helps students save a bit of money while also helping them jumpstart their education into what they plan on studying in university. Hope this review helps!

I really enjoyed the conversations I would have with my teachers. The care and effort that they put into their students really moved me. It came to me that they live for their students and are always willing to go the extra mile for their student's success. Being apart of the Highschool band really was an enjoyment. The comradery between my peers was moving and touching, they always wanted to push each other towards being better than yesterday. Our football games helped us students to unite against other schools and put our ego aside. Our school was able to unite my peers without failure. The school administration would endless and tirelessly to promote a safe and healthy learning area for my peers to learn and be educated, without any fear of bullying.
Bergenfield High School is a beautiful school to grow up in. The community is diverse and filled with students of all personalities. Our principal is amazing—every morning he greets us outside, no matter the weather. Most of the teachers I’ve had, are more than teachers, they are also mentors and guiders. As students, we are given so many resources and opportunities. With so many Advance Placement courses and Dual Enrollment courses, the school prepares us students for college. I am a proud student at Bergenfield High School.
