My child has attended Bridge to Indepence Private School for two years. The school had me sold on their disciplinay system, uniforms, and extracurricular activities (listed but not available). After enrollment I found out that the school grades share classrooms and one teacher (sometimes they have a teachers assistant). However, the problem here lies ultimatley with their lack of educational structure. A majority of their teachers are not certified and in fact have been inexperienced. My childs teacher was asked to provide a lesson plan or some kind of agenda periodically and never produced any. The problem is that they have 30+ children from different grades sharing one class how and what are they learning? Some students are not learning because of this. Another thing, in that two year period there has only been two PTA meetings where the principal has asked the parents to donate food with their government provided SNAP assistance. If you love your child and education is more to you than the Dean being able to }paddle" your child, PICK ANOTHER SCHOOL!

This school is a great school. My grand coming from public to private school has made such a great inpact in her pporgess. When you see a child who wants and love to attend school the teachers must be doing something right. The love that the staff give to each student is wonderful. Eighty to nintey percent of the student are honor roll. What is that telling you about the school

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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
