Posted April 3, 2014

Bridgeport Middle is by far the best school Ive ever come to know & Ive not only been to quite a few different schools myself but my children have also. The principal is very involved in everything. From the education of every child in the school to cleaning and mowing the grass. The teachers are very open with parents and treat all children equally, respectfully. Never hesitated to give one on one help with children who need individual help.
