My son have been attending this school since opening. He is in 4th grade and his teachers are great. The food in the cafeteria is not great, the milk is not good sometimes, for that reason I send my son with lunch every day. Overall the environment is good and my son is learning more every day. There is still room to improve, office staff seems disconnected with information about school activities.
The choir teacher left and the school fired her for a stupid reason. The choir strand was so great until she left. The academics at the school are not so great. The audition is pretty easy, leading to a wide variety of people at the school, for good and bad reasons.
Bridge Prep is a wonderful academy/charter school in Downtown Miami. They require real accountability from students, the teacher, the parents, and the teachers aids. It is refreshing to see an educational k-5 committed to continually making themselves better. We like the facility, the recreation area, and everyone involved with the school, from Carlos the head of security, to the Principal. We would highly recommend this school for parents interested in a real good quaint experience.
I am happy with Bridge Point Academy. My daughter attended a Montessori School for five years, and last year was her first year on a regular learning environment school; Bridge Point has been a great school choice. The teachers are amazing, they have a total devotion to their student's, as well as dedication to their progress.
I have been completely surprised with all the wonderful changes there have been in BridgePrep of Greater Miami this year. New principal, new addition of classrooms and a new after school care director. I have not been able to speak much to the new principal but that aftercare director is totally different than what we are used to. She knows exactly what she's doing. I experienced her helping 20+ parents the first day of school with numerous questions (not only about after care) and she answered them all. When you walk into the new wing to pick up your child from after care, she greets you with a great smile and knows exactly what is going on and where your child is. She is great! I truly recommend after school care with her as the director. Good job BridgePrep. Keep up the good work!!!
So sad to see how many kids left the school being the MAYOR reason the unacceptable management of the Principal. You let go excellent students and did not listen parent praying for help. Let's see what happen this year. Please STOP asking for money that we not see translated in benefits for our kids. Where went last year fundraising's money?
I second the previous comment. The teachers are good. Parent involvements is required and welcomed (also good).. The main focus is fundraising. The children are not the priority except when fundraising is concerned. In other words, the children of the parents with the best resources are well taken care of. Unfortunately, it is very apparent. The diversity in the school is great parents and teachers are great and most of administration but they have poor management results. Not sure where most of the responsibility lies, but it is somewhere within the management.
