This school has possibly been the best school I've ever gone to in my entire life! Considering that I'm young though its not as surprising, but I really do mean it. If I hadn't gone to Hall School, I wouldn't be as original, smart, nice, or mannered person that I am right now. The school may be hard to handle at times but that's the thing, the school kind of pushes you to become braver and you eventually do become a braver person! Me for example, I was so shy getting there. I was that kid that stood alone during recess instead of playing with my peers. I was the kid that never talked during lunch. But I was the kid that always raised their hand. I always made people feel better if they were feeling down. And I always helped people if they had troubles in school. And at the end of the year. I learned so much stuff that would help me as a person. Like for example, "Just smile, even if no one else smiles with you." Or to be weird (Which I mean in good spirit). And to this day, The pledge of that school has fit my person perfectly.... "Determined, because I am special, and I am somebody."

I think Hall School is great! My child is currently attending Hall School and I have no complaints about it so far. My child loves it and so do I. The classrooms are not over crowded like other Bridgeport schools, which helps our children learn better because they get more attention from their teacher. The principal is very nice and is always willing to listen to any questions, suggestions and concerns that parents or students might have. Discipline and safety are in good standing at all times. Everyone gets equal treatment. I have never heard anything negative about this school and I will definetly recommend it to any parent out there.

This was and still is a great school. Most of my aunts and uncles went to this school and so did I. I loved all my teachers and if you live in bridgeport you should send your children there too.

Some, not all, of the teachers at Hall are very considerate and knowledgeable. Christy Depeano has worked single handedly with my son on several occasions and has made a deep impact on him. I am extremely grateful of the effort and time she has devoted to my son. The principal of the school shows absolutely no interests in helping the students learn or on their saftey. She does not suspend a student when they should be, but rather sends the student off to a different class and allows them to 'play' on the computer. How exactly is this teaching and molding a child for the adult world when they do not even know right from bad. In fact, this is actually teaching them that by doing things the wrong way they can be rewarded.
