Bridgeport School District Reviews
The experience was very interesting. I am from New York and I had to adjust a lot to the Bridgeport lifestyle and the neighborhoods. Overall, aside from the safety issues, it is quite resourceful. Once you get a hang of how to transport and understand the area, it can be very welcoming. There seems to be a lot of rich history in the area and a good amount of clubs to keep kids, teens, and young adolescents busy! There was also a lot of good restaurants to get great quality food and large plazas to shop around !

With recent facility updates, students are afforded a high quality work environment which gives a sense of pride. Sports are a staple in our community! Between basketball and football, there's never a shortage of sporting events to attend.
The Bridgeport public school system has been offering students of multiple backgrounds, ethnically and financially, opportunities such as scholarships and a variety of AP classes. With a diverse community, students are able to feel welcomed. Teachers and staff members offer college guidance and assistance to their students. As a high school student in Bridgeport, I have been offered a variety of AP courses such as chemistry, calculus, US history, English and composition, and multiple others. These classes have enrichened my academic skills and have better prepared me for college. I have been persuaded by many teachers to push myself and take challenging coursework, to set high goals, and to work hard, no matter what my situation is. The Bridgeport public school system deserves more recognition for their hardworking teachers, driven students, and challenging coursework.
