The school has jumped 100 spots from 2008 to 2010 and will keep on improving so that 2 star rating was inappropriate. Like what most will say about Bergenfield's school district the Music Department is the most standout program in the school system--voted as one of the best music communities in America with a rich marching band history and one of the few schools with Electronic Music classes. They've raised their academic standards in general adding more AP classes since I graduated even AP art courses. They're also helping students more with college planning and campus visits.The facilities have been upgraded new field track gym floors gym lockers restrooms and have more renovations in plan. The athletics have improved greatly. The wrestling program is one of if not the best of its division. Football team went from a losing streak to ranking in the top 25 of North Jersey. The school is moving in the right direction and less students are choosing schools outside of the district.

Well since I'm in RWB i don't know much about the teachers and classes but I heard the marching band is supposed to be known somewhat for the recent movies they've done and how bad the football team is. The bounty hunter and appearing in the early morning shows. I hear they get tons of money for their part and is very good.
I think the school needs to look into a more challenging curriculum as well as reducing the size of classes. The ways I feel they can improve this is by lobbying for funding from the state.
My daughter is in the STEM program and she could not be happier with her curriculum. Her teachers are very dedicated and inspiring and we are very happy with the experience in the Bergenfield public school system. A school should be judged by the quality of its teachers and curriculum and not by standardized tests which lump the students who do not take school seriously with those who do.
I think Bergenfield High School has improved thier cirriculum dramatically from the time I was attending. It appears to be a lot more rigorous and challenging which is good as it shows they are doing thier best to keep up with modern teaching practices.
