The faculty at Bridgeport International Academy (BIA) are exceptional. Four teachers also are Professors at the University of Bridgeport (UB) and the relationship between UB and BIA makes the school exceptional. For example, juniors and seniors can take college classes and the BIA Chemistry class just had their laboratory work at UB. Exciting!

Bridgeport International Academy is a pretty extraordinary school. It is really fitting for students who want to meet the world and grow in character during high school. As a college-preparatory institute, it gives students the education needed to adjust and succeed in the next step in growing their academic careers. And it has the most welcoming and caring administration to help make that happen. Overall, I would really recommend this school. Though like every high school, it has its minor flaws, I would not have traded my experience here for another.
This school helps students to have open mind, good character, and global citizenship. I feel comfortable with classes and students from different countries like to respect each others personality. Eventhough school doesn't offer various clubs, It's great place to coming out from your comfort zone if you think yourself as timid person. Anyone can be themselves with warm-hearted students. I'm grateful that I'm a student of this school and met lifelong friends from whole world. I could experience what humanitarian ideal is. Overcome the prejudice between different countries, embrace differences and have the true heart of understand, respect, and caring.
