Among the things which will highlight this academic year:
- A September 22 academic program, done in partnership with NASA, where North Bergen High School will be one of approximately fifteen high schools nationwide to have a direct video link with the Space Station. It will be part of the district’s Hispanic Heritage Month celebration, as the astronaut on the video link will be Hispanic.
- Extracurricular club activities, with students taking part in different club contests for the Model United Nations, the band and chorus, as examples.
- Elementary school classes highlighting different holidays in the schools. Each principal and teaching staff is free to select which holidays and what type of tributes they would like to do.
- The addition this year of the 7th grade to the STEAM Academy.
