Bergenfield High School: A Renaissance School

A Renaissance school
is one that creates a culture
in which academic excellence
is supported and rewarded.

Complimenting any of the nearly 4,500 Renaissance schools in the United States is the importance of the promotion of a culture of character and dedication to safety as also essential to the school community.

On Wednesday, May 7, 2008, Bergenfield High School demonstrated its commitment to the Renaissance philosophy, inseparable from cultivating character and safety by hosting a presentation titled Technology Concerns for Educators: Social Networking, Cell Phones, Instant Messaging.

As the speaker for over 100 faculty and administrators of the school who attended the presentation, I was privileged to stress the importance of academic excellence intertwined with understanding current issues and cultivating character and safety for the school community.
