Never disappointed. Great teaching ethics and productivity. Parents could be more involved. But over all, really great school system.

My daughter has been a student at Multicultural Magnet since Kindergarten and is now in the 2nd grade. I have been impressed with the educating of the the teachers and how much the consistency of learning is obvious. Great school, great teachers, great principal. I expect greater things from this school and look forward to my daughter graduating from Multicultural Magnet.

I have been among the few very fortunate who's child has had the advantage of attending one of the city's elementary magnet schools. In the 6 years that my 8th grader has attended this school he has benefited from high expectations, foriegn language classes, band, a school swimming pool that is used during gym period, shop and home-ec, an art room, computer classes, exposure to and education about a wide array of cultures and nationalities, and a positive environment with high acheiving students. The downside: Even the magnet schools have suffered from budget cuts, and in the last 2 years the school has done away with shop and home-ec. Also, you should know that if you are planning on relocating to Bridgeport, your chances of getting into a magnet school are very slim. They use a random lottery system. The public school choices are frankly very sad.

My son has been a student at Multicultural Magnet since kindergarden. He is now in the seventh grade. My husband and I both have been very happy with the school and would highly recommend other parents to enroll their children. Being active parents within the schools and community (attending B of E meetings, PAC etc.) has really given us the comfort of knowing everything our son's future will benefit from.
