I really love the staff. They've been 100% supportive of their students and actively strive to do better each day. So far, I've loved all of my teachers. I enjoy going to school to learn there. My only complaint is that there's some classes that schools in bigger cities have, but we don't! Which is to be expected in a town of less than 9,000 people, but it is definitely something I hope changes over the next few years.

Bridge City High School is a relatively small school which I like because you can really get to know your classmates and teachers on a personal level. Everyone is amazing at this school and the education is top-notch. There are so many clubs and organizations for every single student to be apart of, and the cool thing about the school is in the school song it says “be apart of all that’s offered” and all the organizations really help students achieve this and have great college resumes. The only down fall is the administration who has been having some issues lately but other than that and amazing school and district!
My experience at BCHS was overall, a good one. I started going to Bridge City in the 8th Grade, and now I have the honor of graduating there. In my opinion, BCHS has some of the most dedicated, caring teachers of any other school in our area. The academics are second to none. Overall, our athletic program is good, but I feel that we have the talent to be better. My football coaches and baseball coaches were second to none. Not only did they do a great job with us on the field, but they developed close relationships with us off the field. We have bonds and memories that will last a lifetime. Bridge City High School will always have a special place in my heart.
