Bernards Township School District Reviews

My son entered Bernards Township School District as an 8th grader after growing up in Japan attending Japanese schools. At Bedminster school he encountered engaging and supportive teachers. This positive experience impacted my son deeply. He was meant to `study abroad` in New Jersey for one year and then return to Japan, but on his own accord he wanted to stay in America. We decided to let him to live with his grandmother and continue his education at Bernards High School. I grew up in Basking Ridge and graduated from Ridge High, so I had full confidence in the School district knowing he would be well educated and prepared for college. He has grown and learned so much from his time at Bernards High School, not only as a student but as an athlete, a musician and a thoughtful member of society. We are so grateful that his teachers, coaches and staff have gone above and beyond to help him reach his goals.

I liked the small-town vibe environment that Bernard's gave, but it gets old fast. Once you get a bad reputation, you want to leave the "bubble" as soon as possible. The academics did although prepare me for college by giving me a great baseline knowledge of fundamentals needed for the science career path. Also, the spanish program really prepared me for success at the college level.
Bernards Township School District provides the best of the best in a great town. All of it's schools are highly achieving and have great reputations. The district only hires the best staff that they can find. Diversity is rarely a problem but can be due to an extremely low African American and Hispanic population.
