    "This is my third year at this school. What really bothers me about this school is the administration and teachers. This is a school that cares more about the dress code than the students and their education. I have had the same teacher for a subject for 2 years and i tried to transfer out because him/her does not get along nor does him/her know how to treat/teach the students. The administration told me i cannot change teachers however other students were able to change out of other classes. I am not the only one; other students have tried to change however the school has done NOTHING. Our parents pay good money for this school; we should have a voice and it should be heard. If there was a petition against this teacher at least 100+ students would sign. Now God forbid that you didn't shave, don't have the right shoes or have a sweatshirt, etc it will result in detention. There is someone in particular who loves to roam the halls looking to give out detentions. They will roam the halls, the cafeteria and classrooms. Its the dress code above all in Bergen. Plus its overcrowded. The school is starting to put money over quality and the students. I'm glad to be leaving soon. Good luck"

    "So basically this is a school that I don't fit in. I transferred from a Christian high school. The first thing that is really disturbing is the language they use in this school. Adjectives such as filthy, dirty, disgusting are understatement of what you can hear all around the hall way. Most students here are not as good as how they're described. There are not many very nice guys. OK now we talk a little bit about the teachers. Teachers are available after school for extra help. Teachers are enthusiastic on their job in general. However, some teachers are kind of apathetic about answering students' question and some others even make fun on some particular students (at least their behaviors make me think so). Having a good teacher is like winning a lottery. And then I want to talk about the intensity of their curricula. The Christian school that I used to attend was very strong at English so their English CP are pretty easy for me. Don't forget this is an all-boy school and over 800 students, which means the hallway is EXTREMELY CROWDED between classes. The 3-minute break between classes worsens this situation. Be prepared to be pushed back and forth when changing classroom."

    "Bergen Catholic is one of the finest high schools in the state.They teach quality education, great lay teachers, Brothers etc. This school prides itself on God, Academics and everytrhing else. Many of the students who come are not Cathloic because they teach respect for everyone. Their results speak for themselves. My son got a great education, went on to Middlebury , Harvard Med and s a wonderful huiman being today because of the outstanding foundation he received at BCHS. The best investment a parent can make in the Bergen area is to send your son to Bergen Catholic, nothing compares."

    "My son was in public school system all his life before going to Bergen Catholic. Our public schools are one of the top in the county, yet I never felt completely satisfied with the schools. I felt that something was always missing. It wasn't a easy decision to get him to go to a different school at 14, leaving all his friends. But boy, it's the best decision I ever made for him and I'm thankful everyday. The school and teachers care about students and for the first time in his life, my son talks about how much he likes his teachers. His attitude towards school has totally changed. The great sports program enables him to develop a good work ethic and a strong bond with his friends. The use of technology is great and the school is very supportive of what students need. Academically, the honors classes are relatively strong and the regular classes are just okay. Not much complaining there, because I value the overall environment more than the academic aspects. Students are respectful of others yet confident about themselves. I think this is a great environment to raise boys in and I can't say enough about how much my son has flourished in this school."
