oh New Bridge.....i miss you now....i used to fear your haunted hallways, no lockers, and teacher always with another assignment, always pushing us to do more....but seriously, the best teachers I had were at New Bridge. The best science teacher I ever had Mrs. Anderson, I learned more from her than anyone! Dr. Barnes and Mrs. Buckner are a dynamic principal and assistant duo! They actually care and want you to learn! New Bridge has a lot of rules, but you will thank them later, great teachers! (did anyone else get after school detention for dress code violations? Watch out- they''ll get you for two-toned shoes. HAHA) Great teachers and staff, can't say it enough. My closest friends today in high school were made at New Bridge.

This has been a great experience for my family. Most of the here reviews are right. The teachers, principal Dr. Barnes, counselor Mrs. Bender are really great and have always helped. Policy and procedure? They are on top of it. I have only heard from a few that don't like it because they will actually expel students who don't know how to behave. It is nice to have a school with standards. My only concern is the loss of school SRO officer Mr. Davies. He was at everything and knew what was going on too. I don't know the new one but I don't think they should change officers if it is working well.

Quality of academic programs: we are most familiar with the science and music departments. Both are second to none. There are a variety of ways for students to participate in the things that are interesting and productive. The facility: it is an old building but it is clean and quite attractive. Teachers and staff: the counselor, administrators, and teachers are all professionals; they respond; they care.
