In my opinion this is probably the worst high school in Bridgeport. The curriculum is poor and a good portion of students disregard their own education often disrupting others.


Posted April 4, 2014

This school is good but the students there are not serious and they don't get a lot of support from their parents and so they take that on teachers.The school also needs financial support.

I looked up the 100 worst schools in America. This came up on the list.


Posted August 31, 2011

This school may have been a great school back in the day, but now it's one of the worst schools I have ever been with. I moved to the district unknowing that the school was on "academic probation". My child, never got an student ID, because the machine had been broken since the being of the year. Never got a locker until school was almost out. Was not put in to the system. My child would go to class and the teachers would ask if they was new, this is after being enrolled for two months. And I never received a report card.I had made a number of calls to the school, with not results. And then the BOE. they were in the same league as the school, no reply. I honestly can't blame one parent that put her child in school in another town. The poor parent was arrested, but who wants a bad education for their child If your child attends Bridgeport schools, they will be left behind.

While this school attempt to be one of the best in Bridgeport it's overall academic performance in no way prepares a child for anything other than High School (somewhere else). There is no challenge of the students nor is there accountability. I have had 1 child graduate #2 in his class and I now have a 2nd child going there.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Connecticut used the Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) to test students' skills in reading, writing, science and math in grade 10. The CAPT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Connecticut.
Beginning in the 2009-2010 school year, the Connecticut Department of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the CAPT test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
