Not enough room in STEM classes. School is more concerned with protecting teachers than students. District in general is very poorly run. Superintendant shares a secretary with the School Board, so no complaints get to the board. The district is financially irresponsible as well. If you suggest a change, they will spend thousands to make sure smart changes do not happen rather than make smart changes..... Lots of ego out of the folks on the board and running the district. Not a place you want your kids to go if you have expectations of a good education
While this school may be older than Bingham and Pioneer, it is well maintained and has just as much technology. Bridger has a pool and none of the other schools around here do. The best thing about Bridger is the feeling I get in the building. It feels like home. Teachers and students have good attitudes. The school is very welcoming. If I was offered a position anywhere in the district, I'd choose Bridger.
My oldest went to Bridger and loved it there. My youngest is now in 7th grade and loves school. I will say that my oldest wasn't challenged enough in Math.. They did something for with 4 other students and offered them more challenging assignments using High School math.They do go mile to help the students from what I have seen. Kim
If anything at all, the curriculum isn't challenging enough. My son attends Bridger and is an effortless honor roll student. My 1 complaint about this school is it needs a serious face lift. The school has to be at least 40 years old. Also kudos to Mr John Sutton...an outstanding asset to this district.
The math cirriculum in this school and the other middle schools is cripling these students. He just continues to fall behind and his math teachers don't seem concerned enough to notify us if he fails unit tests. They continue to move forward to the next unit with out the proper understanding of the previous units. He is not alone. Many students struggle with this cirriculum, yet they continue to push ahead, leaving students 'behind' So much for NCLB!
