    The teachers were engaged in the students success and they were also advocates for the students. The students showed respect for the teachers and other students. There were occasional issues in the halls but very minimal for pre-teen age children. The Strings (Orchestra) program is exceptional! My son went to this school for 6th and the first half of 7th grade. We were sad to leave this great school.

    Bridge Street has a staff that is committed to the success of their students. The top priority at BSMS is student achievement. It is also a school that puts the emotional needs of their students in consideration in all they do. It is the best middle school in the county!

    I have seen this school become the top notch middle school in the county over the last three years. Their schedule is wwonderful for above average students as well as the struggling learners. Teachers work hard to help students succeed and it is truly a family atmosphere. Everyone should send their middle school child to BSMS!

    I have had the opportunity to complete my student teaching at Bridge Street and I must say that I was impressed with the personalized attention that each student received. The principal Ms. Wiggins was very visible and appeared to know each student personally. The quality of instruction was intense and individualized. I would be pleased to send my children to Bridge Street School.

    This was the worst school I've ever attended. It's very poorly maintained and that entire school is chaos. The learning environment is just awful. They have poor music and art programs and most of the teachers don't seem to care about the kids learning. Never in my life would I go back there to remember the days of bullying confusment and teachers not even taking notice.

    The school is like a giant brick oven. The teachers are unfair and don't set very good examples. The students are extremely disrespectful of adults and other students. It is a very hard learning environment.

    I think Bridge Street id one of the best schools int he county. All the other schools are not as fun. I love to goof off a little and not get in trouble. It makes learing fun.

    I believe that Bridge Street has a poor condition. Without air conditioning it's very hard for us students to learn anything because it is hard to pay attention. Too many people goof off in class and when students try to learn they can't because there is too much distraction going on. Some teachers don't even notice student that have a great ability in a subject becuse they're worrying about other students' that need 'Special help'. What about the students that do? A lot of teachers don't realize the help some people need and it's disturbing. The school needs many improvments with appliances and the ability to work with children. It's the teachers job and they need to learn to do it right.

    Bridge Street is a big disapointment. There is no air conditioning which makes a very uncomfortable environment for learning. It is in poor condition. The school is very chaotic. I don't feel the teachers care enough. I would not recommend this school.

    Bridge Street is a great school not to big and actually we have friends that go to several different private schools and my child actually is ahead of the kids in private schools when it comes to music art and some study classes when it comes to the elite private schools my child was going to go to her friend goes there and they are learning on the same level. A child will get out of school as much they are able to absorb and how involved the family is.
