AFBA is an excellent school. The staff and teachers wants your child to succeed, in order for this to work the scholars and parents really have to cooperated or the system will fail on them. If a child is having problems with a subject there is Saturday academy to tutor the scholar. AFBA teach at high school and community college level, so this school might not be for every parent and child, but if you are committed to their program it can be rewarding. They have tutoring to prep the top scholars to get in to CTY which is a search for talented youth. Once your child is in 8th grade, they help the scholars to get in to some of the top high schools, the top ranking students get prep to take the SSAT so they can get into a private high school.

I can't say enough about this school, and the quality of education my son is recieving. The principal and teachers are amazing. It is a callenge for the parents too because they do expect a lot from the kids, but once they fall into line, they get it and enjoy the rewards! It is a wonderful school. I see my nieces who are in the same grade in Fairfield schools, and I think my child is learning more and is in a better enviroment then they are. When you walk into the school you feel that the teachers really want to be there. It is an amazing enviroment. My son is doing great and his reading level is up. I love this school!

At Achievement First Bridgeport Academy, scholars, such as I, are prepared to climb the mountain to college. Starting with the 2010 - 2011 school year, AFBA will be educating students grades 5-8. Bridgeport Academy is an excellent school. The teachers and staff are energetic, encouraging, and eager to teach. They all sincerely care about the scholars, and want them to learn. Being a 7th grade 'junior,' I am able to truly say that the scholars at our school are very close. Yes, there are a few arguments every once in while, but that can be expected from any team and family, which is what we, everyone at AFBA, consider ourselves to be. If your child has the honorable opportunity to be enrolled into this school, you should absolutely accept without a single hesitation, for I guarantee that Achievement First Bridgeport Academy will work wonders with your child.
