My daughter is been in this school since 6th grade and now she will be graduating 8th grade. This was the best decision I made for my daughter to attend to this school. Bridgeport school systems have a bad rep this is the best middle school there is. I hope in the future they expand to a elementary and middle school. Very strict but fair and they really take time to help children to do better.

This is an excellent school i 'm so proud to know my child attends one of the best charter schools around. Discipline & Acedemics are top priority, i love this school because they have to be properly attired , in order & follow rules. I just encourage the Director to keep up the immaculate job ,also the teachers are great.
