Bergen County Schools

Families choose Bergen County for the terrific schools, which are nationally recognized for their excellence. Known for rigorous academics, committed and talented teachers, and a low student-to-teacher ratio that encourages individualized attention, the schools make this county a favorite for parents who put their children’s future first.

Bergen County offers 45 public schools and 23 private and religious schools that serve students in the primary, middle and high school years. Honors courses, advanced placement, gifted and talented programs, and a wealth of athletic and extracurricular activities are offered.

Seven of Bergen County’s high schools rank among the top 20 in the state, more than any other county, according to a biennial survey published by New Jersey Monthly magazine in 2008. The rigorous overall preparation helps students achieve the credentials they need, such as competitive SAT scores, to gain admission to the colleges of their dreams, including the Ivy League.
