I enjoyed my full four years at Bernards High! I made tons of friends, created great relationships with my teachers, and prepared myself for a world of success as I moved on to college. All of the teachers made it very clear that they loved their jobs, which made me excited to come to school every day. The curriculum that teachers taught for AP courses my senior year prepared me for college classes, which I am incredibly thankful for. Most of the population of other high school students here were friendly, and I never really witnessed any bullying. The atmosphere at this high school was very safe. There were lots of resources, with the guidance office being a tremendous help with anything you needed, all hours of the school day. The only thing I would change about my high school was the cafeteria food! Other than that, I quite enjoyed my experience at Bernards High!

Great school! Many supportive teachers and stuff. The school offers many rigorous courses. The school offers many courses online as well. The teachers are great, although, some can be on the mean side.
Right off the bat, let me say that it's a really wonderful school! The principal knows every student by name and is very supportive of all the activities that the school has to offer. If a student does not find a club or activity that they are interested in, they can speak with the principal and create the club they desire. Very supportive and nurturing environment. 10/10
