Residency Requirement

Non-resident students are not permitted to attend North Bergen Public Schools. Upon relocating out of the North Bergen School District students will be immediately transferred to the proper school district. Individuals attending North Bergen Public Schools will be responsible for full payment of non-resident tuition and excluded immediately regardless of the time of the school year. Non-resident students are not able to participate in diploma awarding ceremonies or any and all end of the year school activities.

The above policy does not apply to Guttenberg resident high school students. A reward of $100.00 shall be paid to any person who provides information on any student who is illegally attending North Bergen Schools. The reward shall be paid if and when the student is removed from the North Bergen School System.

The school district may, on occasion, check to verify your residency by a visit to the home address provided by the parent(s) or guardian(s).  These visits are conducted by the Attendance Officer or Residency Investigator.

These visits may take place at any time throughout the day and evening between the hours of 8:00 AM and 9:00 PM.
