North Bergen School District Reviews

I would like for there to be more funding for everything else besides the athletics departments, especially more funding for the art classes. I would like to see more help in preparing for college and the future. I like the concern for security but the school needs more funding to handle all the students in the school. Overcrowded hallways is also an issue. More funding in other departments could help increase the schools quality because we would be able to afford new supplies and build up other areas of the school, better food, prevent leaks and the elevator breaking for the students who need it.

It is an honor to be an alumni at North Bergen School District. For example, the faculty at each school whether it be a middle school or high school, was awesome. They actually cared about the students becoming a worthy young adult, instead of just drilling simple vocabulary words and math problems. This school district changed who I am today. I have always enjoyed school but, being able to become apart of the sports section was even more incredible. I learn about myself a lot. Thank you North Bergen.
I went to school in the 70's when there was a higher quality of education in North Bergen, NJ. Unfortunately it has gone downhill over the years. Hopefully it will reclaim its once academic status which sent many students to great universities.
