    BT is awesome because anything you could ever need we have it. All the majors work together. The best example of this that I could think of is the Fashion Show at the end of the year. Everyone gets together to set up the stage electrical sets up the light digital media has the cameras and sound culinary makes the food cosmetology does our hair and makeup and of course fashion makes the clothes. It's the biggest night of the year and you should buy a ticket (

    Best High School choice for all children. There is something for everyone. In today's economy our teens need to work and most of the time they are not prepared for it end up taking low paying jobs working long hours. Colleges prices go up each year and our kids are saddled with a huge debt the minute they enter college. If a teen has a trade knowledge when he finishes HS he/she will be better equipped to have a more meaningful job upon HS graduation. My son went into the ASE Auto Program the auto shop kept him in school and he learned a trade there on his Senior Year he did his Senior Internship at a dealership where he was offered a job as soon as he graduated HS. 2 years later he is a Master Tech and not even21 yet. He attends college part time and works at same dealership.

    The administration is wonderfully active and involved with the students. The faculty do an outstanding job making sure the math and science courses are on the same subject to enhance the quality of education. I was enrolled 1999-2003 among the first graduating class of Bergen Tech when the science labs didn't look as outstanding and the gym wasn't a full sized HS gym. The school has really gone the extra step for the students.
