This school is the best school in bridgeport, aside from the ones next to it. It's big, clean and very good at teaching the material. This school is the only school in Bridgeport that's advanced with the material. There's all kinds of extracurricular activities. In addition, the faculty they have is great, and on top of that the school is bilingual! What more must you need to know that that is the school your son/daughter should go too?
