BergtraumMurray Bergtraum High School (pictured at right) has had its fair share of bad press over the years due to numerous episodes of violence.

Bergtraum, which made the city’s list of “Impact” or violent schools in 2009, made negative headlines in December 2010 when New York City police placed a metal detector in the building because of a student riot, where a NYPD officer got hit over the head with a trash can and an individual was sent to the hospital.

Watch the riot here:

Bergtraum, which is ironically located behind the city’s police headquarters, offers business and marketing courses as well as hands-on experience in a school store. Despite the many efforts of educational administrators to correct the violent culture at Bergtraum, there is an array of problems that still plague it, such as overcrowding, below than average attendance, a high drop-out rate, and discipline problems.
