I am glad to talk about my school. My school does care about it's students and their we'll being. I love how diverse and unique everyone is. But one problem I do have is having a lot of substitutes and not learning anything. Academically, I'm not glad where we are but everything is is fine!

Most of the teachers at Bridgeton High School are very qualified and good at what it is they do. The school building itself, though, is not really that clean. The principal is extremely kind and does everything possible to make the experience a fun and memorable one for all the students and tries his hardest to get everyone involved. The attitude of a lot of the students can sometimes be arrogant and obnoxious which can be unpleasant to deal with. Then again I am sure you will find that in no matter what school you go to. Overall, I would describe my experience at Bridgeton High School as pretty decent.
My time at Bridgeton High School provided me with great friendships and memorable experiences. Overall it was good and I wouldn't trade it, but there are many things that the school could improve on. Many students need to receive more encouragement to get motivated. There are great teachers, but something should be done in order to better prepare students for what college is like.
