St. Bridget School is a great place for kids. The principal is great and the teachers really care about their students. The program is challenging yet each child's needs are met. My children just love it!

St. Bridget school is a wonderfully nurturing place for my children. The teachers go above and beyond, and each one in my experience, has been available for any kind of help needed along the way. I continually recommend this school to family and friends, and have it to be a truly rewarding experience for my 4 children.

I am a student at St. Bridget School and soon to be a graduate, and I have to say that attending St. Bridget's was an amazing experience for me and my younger sibling. They give you such a foundation of respect, caring, honesty and responsibility that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. No school could have better prepared me for the real world and I am very thankful that I was so fortunate to attend St. Bridget for nine years!

Overall the school is great. You learn alot, but as I found out in high school, you don't get alot of homework at all, and half the time when you do get homework, students complain that they have so much so that the teacher feels sorry and doesn't assign it.

My children have played sports against st. bridget school and i must say that it is not a pleasurable experience. The coaches and the children have no respect and are very rude. I would expect more from a catholic school who is supposed to be teaching the children respect and dignity. Maybe the principle should look further into the actions of their coaches and students especially those who are on the boys 5th and 6th basketball and baseball teams.

I am a former student at this school and let me say they are not nice people, most of them, anyways. They are the most ridiculously strict and unfair people I have ever met. They will make your children think they can have no spunk or personality. For being a catholic school you'd think theyd be more kind. They will act nice to the parents face and mean to the children. Thankyou and goodnight!

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.
