It has my heart ~ Great school and teachers!


Posted July 1, 2009

My son has truly excelled at this school. The teachers are challenging in all the right ways, and provide an ideal learning environment. He is now attending college and says that BEHS has done a superb job of preparing him for the collegiate environment. I would highly recommend Bristol Eastern. If I were to suggest any changes, I would ask the school to promote the technology and arts programs a bit more than they already do (although a highly motivated student would find no problem making the most of the existing programs).

As the summer wears down, I will begin my senior year at BEHS. This school has been amazing throughout my whole high school experience because everything is so high class. I have taken high level classes that have challenged me and the school's academic ability, overall, is so much greater than our city's competing school, Bristol Central. Being a member of the tennis team, I have also experienced how supportive and warm my fellow classmates can be, even in the most stressful situations. Definitely everything I could wish for and more.

As a graduate of BEHS I feel that this school prepared me for college and beyond, by taking a demanding schedule. The extracurricular activities are amazing, there is a club for whatever you are interested in doing and if there isn't one, feel free to start one!

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Connecticut used the Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) to test students' skills in reading, writing, science and math in grade 10. The CAPT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Connecticut.
Beginning in the 2009-2010 school year, the Connecticut Department of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the CAPT test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
