This school does not do too much to help the students that really need help.It is more concerned with money then concerned with really helping students pass.if a student is struggling they will pass them along and not think twice. Very few teachers actually care that the kids pass

Run from this district. The teachers care more for money, clout and their personal status then they do about the students. Bullying is not only overlooked and allowed by teachers, often it is encouraged by staff. Sports for the few is valued over education or even equal oppertunity for sport participation by all. The district has lost over 200 students in the last 10 years and is predicted to lose 200 more in the next few years. The district care nothing about students, education or future sucess of children. The district refuses to buy books, computers, fix even the smallest of issues with the buildings or offer after school programs to ensure sucess. Yet the district gives teacher raises, adds administrators and staff, while cutting programs, forcing students to go without tools of education and making the youngest kids, which make up the majority of students,ride the bus for upwards of 2 hours a day. This district is slated for consolidation. The sooner that happens, the better it will be for taxpayers, parents and above all, the suffering students

Pros of Bristol Schools- no school fees for K-6, all day everyday kindergarten, bussing for k-12th, reasonable lunch prices, awesome elementary Secretary! Elementary teachers are pretty awesome too until you hit about 5th grade. Cons of Bristol schools- sneaky, very sneaky. , jr high teacher are ok but a few a just bad appes (5-6 grade I dont have kids past 7), another levy, K-12 are all in one building, small minded community with BIG mouths, Bristol pride forger Farmington, a student can only excel in sports if your parents are in the right click, rude, focuses on behavior rather than academics, small things are a huge deal while racism goes un- noticed. Find a differnt school, the academics are at bare minimal!

Some teachers stood out, however, the overall ineffectiveness of everything else is evident. Rampant close mindedness, and in some cases bigotry, though most of the time it is unrecognized. The culture is that of a community within a bubble. All within the bubble are good and all from outside the bubble are bad... The special ed. program is in some cases laughable. Extremely useful for those who need it, but it has been taken over by slackers who have no problems except for a lack of will to pay attention.

Bristol Schools need an immediate overhaul. The Superintendant is retiring in the fall, he should have retired years ago. Its time to replace many of the teachers and have a better curriculum to help prepare those going to college. Too many of the teachers and staff have a negative view of the students! They need to have and create a better outlook for their students. Bristol Schools need to put their students first not the teachers and staff members!

I graduated from Bristol High school last year (2009) and I am currently at college. After only a month at college, I have realized that Bristol did not prepare me fully for college. I agree the English department was acceptable but in the sciences, not so much. I believe that Bristol's chemistry course held sufficient information for a college chemistry course but the biology course is truly lacking. I received very good grades in high school but I now find myself struggling to keep up with the material that I was 'supposed' to already have learned. Overall, the school is average. If you plan to go into a career that involves science, you may find that Bristol does not equip you with the proper knowledge for college level science courses.

I am to be a senior for the 2009-2010 school year. I believe that the school is fairly decent. As previously stated, it is 'average.' Schedule conflicts are extremely common. Complaints about how the math is taught are fairly common, though the teacher will explain it further if you ask. I admit that Chemistry nearly put me to sleep on more than one occasion, but I am still able to comprehend it. Overall, the classes are good. Though many of them lack challenge to me, and a few others. I do not state that for the entire student body, but for myself only. The administration has its faults. The intentions are, more often than naught, good, but the means are somewhat questionable to say the least. Trivial things are deemed to be major offenses that require immediate disciplinary action. Overall, the school is decent, with some flaws that need fixed.

I am currently a senior at Bristol High School. I came here from Bloomfield for my sophmore year (2006-2007). I think the science department is severly lacking, and I spent most of my time in those classes sleeping. I am a good student and I have good grades (all As usually), and both Biology and Chemistry failed to either challenge me or teach me anything. I think that Mrs. Suttles does a really excellent job teaching english. While the math teachers may not be ideal for the average student, I didn't have a problem with their teaching methods and did well. This school isn't the best school in the world, and they do have have rules about trivial matters, but it could be a lot worse and I think that with the money they have, they are doing a decent job.

Need more teachers and newer books. The high school is equipped with only one math teacher for the entire high school. Also, the math books are very, very old. Pretty easy for the teacher though, no need to change homework or test, just use the same ones over and over again. Also, if a student doesn t seem to understand what is taught in the math class he or she is out of luck. Subject matter taught once and only once, otherwise you have to stay after school or the parent has to hire a tutor. This is not fair and doesn t say a whole lot for the teaching staff. I thought they were supposed to care. I just pray that our children will be able to pass the state graduation test. Also 72% of the government funding that our school receives goes to the staff, 4% to the students.

I am an Alumni of Bristol High. It needs the continued support of the community to keep it going and make Birstol a great school. Looking back, I think I recieved a very good education. Sarah M.

I am currently a Senior enrolled at BHS. Although I believe I recieved a fairly thorough education, although I am dissapointed with both the lack of funding and the extremely limited number of electives this school has had to offer me. The small class sizes, however, offered me a more personal relationship with the staff, and a better understanding of the subject matter. A new Principal has been hired (2005-2006 school year), who is doing splendidly, in my opinion (maybe a touch overzealous, though ;) ). Put shortly, this is a safe, small school, in a small town.

This is a small rural school, with small town attitudes and closed minds. Gifted children are not valued or recognized by the district without extreme amounts of parental pushing to get things done, despite testing results required by them. Discipline is punitive often on issues that are unimportant. On the positive side, this year we had exceptional 4th grade teachers, a kindergarten teacher who actually did respond to my request for additional guidance with my gifted child and a couple of 7th grade teachers who were also interested in their students. It has been said, and I would have to agree that Bristol is a district for the 'average' student. Nothing else seems valued here.

This school is a good school my i have gone there all my life and would like to stay at this school till i graduate. There a many teachers how need money and are thinking about leaving. i feel so bad every time that i walk into the school myself. We really need to pass our next levy more than anything. We noe have to pay to play Basketball and we have to keep ourselfs warm by huddling up in sweaters and coats. If you are in the Bristol Community please vote yes i am a student. i know you could change everything.
