Amazing school! Bergen Center has turned my daughter's life around. She isn't acting out anymore and she actually loves to go to school! The teachers are wonderful and have made incredible progress with her. For the first time she has friends at school. Everyone is so caring and hard working. It really is like a family there.

My son had completely shut down at his previous school. He stopped trying or caring and hated going to school. His behaviors were getting increasingly aggressive and defiant both at home and at school until he started attending Bergen Center for Child Development. I am amazed at how quickly my son has found himself again. He is confident and eager to learn again. He no longer is bullied and has been warmly welcomed and accepted by his peers. The small ratio of students to teachers is a huge plus as well. I know my son is getting the individual attention and instruction that he really needs and is truly thriving at Bergen Center! A hidden gem right in Bergen County! So happy we found this school.

From time to time we all wonder how things might have turned out if circumstances and situations had been different. We apply that questioning to private schools.
