bridge is a great school that is consistently improving. I've looked into other chgo public schools and it my opinion, this school is definitely superior to many of the magnet and gifted schools in the Chicago area! Especially when you factor in the dedication of the teachers, principal and afterschool extra curricular activities,

I am a parent of a Bridge School Pre-School student. I have been overwhelmingly impressed with the involvement of my daugters teachers. The projects and activities they are involved in truly have surpassed my expectations. The teachers are very involved and truly go above and beyond.

Bridge is an amazing elementary school. My son graduated in 2011 and started while in 1st grade. I have another child now in 3rd who started since kindergarten. Compared to most elementary this one here is a good school. Teachers are great, the office staff are amazing and the principal is all about putting students first. He will make sure any issues are addressed and satisfied. If you're looking got an alternative to a private school and have to choose a public school Bridge Elementary is one of the best schools in the neighborhood hands down.

This is an an average neighborhood public school. Class sizes are very large, some classes 35+. The main building has a small lunch room, so additional lunchroom tables are set up in the hallway . Also, there is a bullying issue at this school, principal working to address, but with so many kids it is difficult to control.

I am a seventh grader at bridge and this school is AMAZING! This is only my second year and I have participated in so many extra curricular activities. We do many extra curricular activities and are very academically challenged. So prepared for ISAT testing!

Bridge is an amazing neighborhood school. The principal is extremely dedicated. The teachers are creative, professional, and provide many challenging/interesting projects and assignments. The PTA is awesome-they provide many extra activities for the students.

My son began attending Bridge last year. Overall, the staff are very involved and attentive. The only complaint I have is that they will not assist parents or allow outside care providers to contact the parents regarding after care. The school itself provides none of these services and actually becomes an obstruction to parents who work and need options after school. Bridge begins and dismisses a full hour prior to the other public schools in the area...this, as well as their lack of cooperation with outside care providers serves as a serious impediment. I am being forced to remove my child from Bridge this year due to a lack of after care. He is being enrolled in a private school, much to my son's and my dismay.

I moved my children from Catholic school to Bridge and have been more than happy. The teachers are wonderful, esp the principal. Academically, my children are doing well, but are also challenged much more than before
