    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.
