School Reviews

My daughters have gone to Bergman since preschool and are currently in 8th and 6th grade. The school has grown since we started but overall the goal of small classrooms and dedicated teachers have endured. The teachers expect kids to be remarkable- and they all are in their own way. We have high expectations for our children and their school- Bergman has been a great place for them.
