My three kids go to this school and they hate it. My oldest has been getting bullied last year (4th grade) and now again in 5th grade. We've talk to teachers and principal and we feel they haven't done a thing. Some teachers are nice but the school don't give the kids enough help they need it. My youngest almost got detained because of the teachers fault in kindergarten. I told them from the beginning he needed extra help and the teacher was never there to give him that. There was always different teachers there and I couldn't get one of them to give him the help he needed. They also need good security guard enforcement to control those kids. Also, the lunch lady is so rude around parents and students. Not acceptable!!!!!! So my rating for this school is below 1.

out of control . these students/scholars are being rude and there is just too many fights. its not okay. we need better security guards and we need to make this school more strick . we need to be like afba( achievement first Bridgeport academy. they should know that good behaviors are much better. I like that they learn and they stay in school, the school can improve by less fights and more paying attention to the board and no off tasks

My Neices and nephew go to this school and absolutly love it! Most kids hate going to school, but they love it! Because the teachers make it fun, and also work with all the kids if they need help! It is a great learning environment!


Posted October 15, 2009

This school is great.All the teachers and all the staff is great as well.


Posted October 12, 2009

The teachers are the greatest! Most of them have been here for years and most all of them are here before school starts for the kids and they are also here after school ends for the kids. They all go above and beyond for them.

I believe that this school is a good school. I feel this way because I attended this school for K-8 and I enjoyed it there very much and was very sad to have to leave. This school has much to offer including a great Cheerleading Team which I was Captain and a great Basketball team. Because of this school I was able to attend a very challenging program which will allow me to attend any College I please as long as I pass the final test my Senior Year. Overall this school is great and any child would be lucky to attend. If i could rate i would rate 5 stars!
