Catered to the children of parents on the PTA or that attend every function and volunteer. Which in my opinion is so the faculty do have to do their job or any extra!I bought a house in the neighborhood adjacent to the school.I was not told that transportation for the elementary school was not provided for our housing addition. Told where bus stop was,not that it was only for Middle and High School kids. We have a drop off next to the school or the kids have to walk,the school has refused to provide a crossing guard (15 minutes twice a day) so that our children may arrive safely at school.Kids have almost been hit by speeding cars repeatedly.The designated drop off is utilized by other neighborhood parents who are running late and don't want to wait in the drop off line (which is always backed up due to lack of streamline procedure/access) as they speed through our neighborhood of walkers.The buses don't have any pick-ups in the neighborhood speed through to avoid the 4 way stop traffic.Called for 3 year straight and no resolution.If you want a free glorified daycare, Bridgeport is your place. If you want your child engaged and challenged, look elsewhere. State rating 4/10.

Bridgeport has a great staff. The teachers work very hard to help all of the children. Several teachers use their personal money to help provide clothes and other things for their students. The classrooms are clean and we love the music that plays in the hallways-its so relaxing. My daughter has been there for 2 years and she was a struggling reader. They provided extra help and she is now reading on grade level.

I had two sons attend this school from K-6. We're very happy with our experience there. The majority of the teachers are top-notch and many have Master's degrees. It does have a fair number of kids from lower socio-economic backgrounds. Those are the kids that are the poor performers who tend to drag everyone else down. The staff needs to address discipline more firmly, with less tolerance for bad behavior. Segregating academic performance may be the answer rather than feeding mediocrity. The teachers and staff are very willing to work with parents to help the kids be succesful.

As far as a public school education, Bridgeport is an excellent choice. The staff and leadership is wonderful. The principal is one of the best in the city! As far as communication, as long as you remember that communication is a two-way street, it's not a problem. You cannot expect all of the responsibility to be on the teacher. The school uses telephone, email, notes, newsletters, conferences, teacher/classroom blogs, and each parent is welcomed to visit at anytime. You can't ask for more! I am please, the education at Bridgeport is wonderful. Visit and see what you think. You would think you are in a private school when you arrive when you see the attitudes of the staff and students. Kudos Bridgeport!

My family has recently relocated here from Los Angeles California. The school systems are night and day. The communication with my son's teacher and us has been outstanding. The curriculum has been challenging and the schools staff is great.

This school has been a big disappointment. I bought a house in the neighborhood because it appeared to be a safe caring environment. Unfortunately this is not the case. This doesn't appear to be a caring environment. There needs to be better communication between parents/teachers.
