    "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 Bergen educators don't care! Why must this town be so political? Why must the scores be SO LOW? It's because teachers are hired not by their qualifications but whom he/she knows. Hire REAL educators. Hire people who care. And enough with the favoritism, it's disgusting. Clean up the place at least, it's unacceptable."

    "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 it is all about politics. MAJOR SACCO is a DUSCH as well. I am glad I was able to join the NAVY and get an education through community colleges and finally University of Cincinnati but this high school did not help much, Invest in private school for your kids even if you have to get a second job they will forever be grateful!"

    "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 place strict rules on everything unnecessary and amongst them, my greatest issue is with the ID rule. Who made it so these people have the GALL to dare deprive you of your education because you're not wearing a piece of plastic as a necklace! To err is human, we sometimes forget but that doesn't give you the right to force us to stare at a wall for six hours when we could be doing something productive! The bathrooms are riddled with this stench and is not kept at hygienically acceptable levels at any time. Their sinks are broken down, i can hardly get enough water out to clean my own hands! Entire sections of the ceiling are missing in some areas. Lockers are not well kept and often I would be assigned a locker that is sticking out of the wall from cracks made years ago. Overall, North Bergen is barely a high school. Somebody address this PLEASE for the sake of future students"

    "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 next grade --this is NOT a school that is preparing students for a college career - let alone a challenging college career. The proof is in state testing scores, SAT, ACTs, etc. While we know there are many challenges like overcrowding, the educators, some of who hold multiple jobs on the taxpayers dime, are way overpaid. Those who hold high positions in the district earn way too much -- and they need to figure out how to dramatically improve the students' overall achievement. It is just wrong that the district continues to operate in failure mode, while the taxpayer, students, parents pay the price. Get some TRUE educators who hold PhD's, dedicated, and have vast experience in turning around failing schools - these are the people who should be rewarded with hefty paychecks."
