I went to this school 1st grade through 8th grade. I would rate this school a 4 out of 5. I think that the teachers were very well educated and very fair to all the children, never picking sides. The principals were always very good leaders as well. The schooling system was very well when i attended but i wish they had offered a little higher in math, like algebra 1. But all in all it was a great school and I'm glad that I attended, i learned alot and I am now in the USAF! I miss being young and attending BCS!

My daughter is only in kindergarten, but so far we have been very happy with her teacher and with the leadership there. The class sizes are small, and her teachers are certainly helping her to become an excited and engaged learner! I would like to see more creativity and innovation in the music program and I am still unsure about the use of technology - but she does have computer class each week so I am hopeful...it is so important to helping kids be prepared for their futures as well as keeping kids engaged in their learning. I think this area should be looking at alternative middle school options for the AOS93 schools - by 6th grade the kids are ready for a change and it seems the middle school kids who attend Bristol are more than ready to move on and some cause problems because of this.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maine used the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math and in grades 5 and 8 in writing. The NECAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maine. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
