    "This school is severely lacking in parental involvement. It seems as if parents don't even care about students' educations by the way a lot of these students act. Some parents are quick to lash out against faculty for decisions made that negatively impact their children. No parents have ever been involved in the school community as far as I am aware."

    "Unless a student actively tries to enter themselves into the most difficult academics, they can breeze through the classes. I've had several teachers comment to me many times how easy it is to coast through the class with a 95+ by just showing up and doing the homework. There is no intellectual stimulation happening. Many teachers who are teaching the more rowdy and unmotivated students don't try anymore because they know the students won't listen. You can breeze through Bergtraum just by taking the required classes and nothing else. The scheduling process has become a lot better this year but the last couple of years it was always a disaster with people getting scheduled to the wrong classes and having to wait forever to get scheduled to the right classes. There was always something wrong with the scheduling before, but this new year it's improved tremendously. Special study options, harder classes, dedicated teachers; everything is there, but the student has to choose to reach for that, otherwise they can coast through their 4 years with no challenge."

    "It's okay compared to many other schools. The parents makes a valuable effort to make a change."

    "It's a great school for students who wants fair education. It's also great for its strategic location."

    "Most teachers at the school genuinely care about the students personally and academically, the others kind just go with the flow... For example: if the class is being disruptive, the teacher would do little to at least get the class's attention. The typical stand and stare followed by the saying, "I'll wait". Teachers who've worked there for more than 5 years, I'd say care about the students. The principal is a typical "show and tell" type of person, she wants outsiders to portray the school as improving, but in reality it's still the way it was with the other principle. However, the school became more student-deprived or in other words money hungry, goshh I'd say seniors we're paying rent for a one bedroom apt. But anyways academically students SHOULD NOT slack at all because teachers are QUICK to give a failing grade."
