School Reviews

  • Recommended November 22, 2011 - Bridge City School district has helped my boys tremendously. Previously enrolled in west orange i moved to Bridge City just to get my kids away from that school. My youngest son has dyslexia and had alot of anger issues. My oldest son just didnt care. Both of my boys have went from straight F students to A and B honor roll. Thanks Bridge City Intermediate and Middle school. You have the most fantastic teachers and faculty around. - Posted by Parent
