This school has no sense of leadership, it is unsanitary, and some teachers are just there for a paycheck...they don't really care about the kids and their well-being. I thought magnet schools were supposed to be good, but this school does not deserve to have magnet as part of the title. If you don't believe me, then check out the reading, writing, and math scores for yourself.

I am a proud parent of two kids that attend Six to Six. My husband and I can say enough about this school. The staff is great the parents are great and everyone that walks thru the doors of this schools know it. The quality of academic programs is fantastic. The involment of everyone from teachers to parents is on school hours and off school hours shows that we all care. The PTA staff always willing to go on and above shows in so many levels. The one on one treatment that is given to each child to make sure that they achived where they need to be in the grade level, there needs are always meet. I Michelle Rivera, recomend this school to any parent that would like there children to learn, be respected as an individual and achived greatness. This school is for your child and for you.

I am very pleased with Six to Six. My daughter is going into the first grade and I have to say that I would not even think about putting her in another school.The teachers are very suportive, along with the principal and office staff!What really impressed me the most was that the first day of school they made it a point to get to know the children and their families.By the second week of school they all knew my name and my child's name as well.They not only impressed me that way, but the principal carried my daughter off of the school bus in the morning for a whole week because she fell asleep on the way to school.She treated my daughter like her own and even commented on her cool socks the next time I saw her in the halls. How personal can you get?Much Love!

This school turned out to be a big disappointment. Pre k and first grade are so so, but once the child becomes independent, discipline is non existent. Children learn obscene words very early on second grade. Teachers do not provide any support and blame the parents for every single problem in the classroom.

My son graduated last year from Six to Six. This school and the caring staff , Principal and Asst. Principal treated my son with respect and he gained his self-esteem back.... My daughter entered in 3rd grade and her reading and writing skills were low, because Six to Six focused on reading and writing her skills went way up and she even won a writing essay award.... Six to Six has been a wonderful learning, caring and growing school.... All students are treated with respect. I am very pleased with the education my son received and my daughter is receiving right now....

My child goes to this school and despite the comment another parent made in April 2003, this is one of the better if not one of the best grade schools in Bridgeport. The teachers have always been courteous to my child and to myself. And now that they are changing their math curriculum, I will be very pleased with the education my son is receiving.

My child goes to Six to Six and this school is not very good. The teachers yell at the students and use profound language at them.The cafeteria is disgusting.
