45 Parent Reviews for North Bergen High School

This school is a great high school itself. The teachers and students that come here are horrendous. Not even the bullying administrator cares if you're crying in the hallway. They look at you and walk away because they don't want to have to deal with your problems too. They've had this school for maybe ...  Read more

Please North Bergen, build another high school! North Bergen High School can no longer contain its massive amount of students. Parents, this school isn't that bad if your child makes something out of their high school career. But, I must say that many of the students are neglected because a lot of North ...  Read more

I can agree with all the bad reviews here. I went here back in 1996 to 2000 and sadly it was the same. What is more depressing is that 11 years later it is still ranked so low. OBVIOUSLY it is due to bad LEADERSHIP and TEACHERS. Principal TENARO needs to be relieved of his duties, but it is sad because ...  Read more

I would first like to say that in my four years in North Bergen High School, I have never been so disgusted by the way the education system is handled in North Bergen. The saving grace of this school is that it does have a dedicated and powerful faculty that do indeed try to ATTEMPT to teach us. They ...  Read more

It's just unbelievable that North Bergen High School which ranks so poorly in the state is recognized as a "benchmark public high school for academic achievement." This makes no sense. In addition, what the school seems to be doing in assigning mediocre work in order to pass the students along to the ...  Read more

I don't know where They are getting this top ranking because they are actually on the bottom rank . The school was the 296th-ranked public high school in New Jersey out of 322 schools statewide, in New Jersey Monthly magazine's September 2010 cover story on the state's "Top Public High Schools", after ...  Read more

My child attends NB HS, and they truly do not care about the needs of their students. There motto is based on keeping faces, as long as it looks like they are working to better the education of the kids then that's where it ends! There is no incentive for creativity, or involvement for either the kids ...  Read more

I am a '73 Graduate of NBHS and am very proud of the education I received there. As with the previous posting, I could list many excellent, involved teachers I had who really cared about us as students. If, indeed, what the other postings say is true, I am very sad to hear that the quality of teachers ...  Read more
