This school is a good place to learn and a decent place to go to school. This community, on the other hand, is one of the worst I've been a part of, with no support to their children who want to explore creativity, and no understanding that not everyone is born with money or talent makes this community a crushing weight on anyone who can't afford a big house or car. On the outside, it looks like ideal suburbia, but in reality, it is a judgemental institution with no understanding of individuality or hardship.

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.
