bridges community academy fails in its mission to equip students with the necessary tools to succeed, with an environment that encourages students to take shortcuts rather than learning and coddles them to the point where they become entirely dependent on others its flexibility of "working at one's own pace" only gives students excuses to procrastinate as long as they are able to push teachers and faculty, and despite initially being marketed as a "gifted" student's alternative to public schooling options, there are very few students who choose to "work ahead" at their own discretion as poor as i believe public schooling to be, i believe that it is a better option for parents to send their children to local public schools than bridges community academy if they are more interested in their students' long-term success in life
This school used to be a great place to be. Now it is horrible. It has changed so much, it's very sad. It's not about the children anymore. There is a horrible bullying problem, and the verbal sexual harrassment runs rampant. The students can pretty much say whatever they want to each other in the middle of a "class" and nothing is said. The conditions of the kitchen/lunchroom are less than satisfactory. The food service is anything but sanitary. I would not recommend this school to anyone.
I really like this school. I moved from a public school. This school is good, when you get a good test grade, the teacher gives you a high five sometimes! They actually help you learn, they use their time to help you. The only down sides about this school is the lunch lady, most of the kids are very different and 'walk time'. The lunch lady always has greasy hair, sometimes doesn't wear gloves when serving the food, burps & laughs and wears really tight shirts. Most kids here have dissablities. It is weird, they crawl around on the floor, some pick fights all the time and others walk around playing their DS & DSi's all day. Walk time is another bad thing about this school, we have to walk around in a circle for a half hour and can't stop. Alot of the teachers there are fake. They talk badly about students behind their backs and act like their best friend to their face. The best teachers there are probably the team five girl teacher and the team four girl teacher that teaches science. 1 teacher there has anger problems, another is always moody & one has leg braces.
This school has very few extracuriculars, poor quality of education, and rather unmotivated students. In addition, I would not recomend this school for parents of autistic children as the setup changes every year. I speak from personal experience. One of the its few reedeeming qualities for gifted students, however, is the ability to take PSEO classes in freshman year.
This schools is excellent for those families who like to think 'outside the box'. Their approach with team teaching is wonderful...and the fact that each students individual needs are met is incredible! I don't think there is a better school out there!
The school is somwhat good for helping students academically, but because it lets you move at your own pace you somtimes skip through work faster and forget it in the long run. Also the school lacks programs outside of academic work
This school works with the children at THEIR level. I couldn't have found a better school...
