I love this school and so does my son! he feels as if he is part of a community and so do we. He always asks to stay longer and our relationship with the principle and teachers is amazing!

Our school is a very small private school in Bridgeport. We don't have enough circulation about our school. Which is great for no over crowded classrooms but not good when we want to be able to promote ourselves. This is the second year my child is at the this school and I love the home feel and family oriented teachers. I absolutely love how each child can get the help they need if they don't understand something. No child gets left behind. I am as a parent to go to the school and talk to the teacher and help in the classroom. I enjoy how much the teachers want the parents involved and aren't afraid to voice it. I love BHS

BHS is a hidden jewel in the town of Bridgeport, CT. It offers small student to teacher ratios which allows for a better learning environment and the teachers have a strong relationship with the parents.

Fantastic school, exelent teacher student ratio and good academic standards. if you are concern about quality of education, character development and school environment then BHS is a place that you should consider. visit their website and talk to the princupal and teachers and you will see what a great opportunity this schools for your children.

Small is better when students are in the early grades. Most apprectiate their use of The Riggs Institute materials.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
