Bergenfield is a place where someone can call home. Everyone is so welcoming here and no one is left out of place. Being a student in this town for the past 13 years has made me realize a lot about our town . Our town is the only town that has culture and diversity. You could walk into a classroom at Bergenfield High School and Roy W Brown Middle School and see the amount of diversity we have, it is truly beautiful. Bergenfield is known for their marching bands and sports. Bergenfield will truly bring people together because I have met a bunch of amazing people there and I am blessed that I moved here.

In Bergenfield, there are plenty of activities and groups to get involved with. There are many programs that both kids and adults participate in. There are pretty much a lot entertainment and restaurants around such as the Bowtie Cinema and Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Hispanic, and American restaurant. Our town also holds many community activities such as the St. Patrick's Day Parade and Memorial Day Parade. The educational system is amazing and there are always several students attending the most prestigious colleges in the country.
