Bristol School District Reviews

The school system has its ups and downs but for someone like myself that wanted to learn, they had the resources for us. Some of the teachers didn't care much about their students though. For example,my science teacher freshman year told my whole class that we we're stupid and wouldnt make it. Another example is my brother, he was in the special Ed program and also had an issue when the teacher told him he was a fail and should just drop out because he wasn't going to make it in life. The special Ed teaches are especially harsh, they scream at the students and dont treat them well. Things like what my brother and I have expierienced in school discourage students and make them want to give up. Thats not what school is about, this is a major issue that should be resovled for the sake of the students education.

Overall Bristol is a good school system, however there are things that can be improved or added. Provid More college preparation and resources available to help you with the process. Try to introduce more clubs to reach more students. The district could also try offering more classes based on what students find interesting.
Has been very well and has been a great experience. The elementary school I attended prepared me well to excel into middle schools where I was given many opportunities to better myself such as learning Spanish in middle school. Again the transition to high school from middle school was very smooth. With in high school the teachers have all been very nice and have given numerous opportunities to get involved not only in the school community but in the town community.
