I am a former student at B/c and can safely say it is an unsatisfactory, dare I even say a horrid experience. The Academics are watered down and not even the least bit challenging. In the class I was in, Math was skipped once a week. Reading class didn't involve any reading. We all just listened to a ...  Read more

Most of the teachers are lazy and don't teach classes. They give students individual assignments each period, and then spend that time reading books or playing around on their computers. The students work on their own. There are a few good teachers there who really work, but most of them don't. The ...  Read more

There are some teachers there with real anger issues that they take out on their students for minor or imaginary infractions. Someone needs to do something about this. In addition, some of the teachers seem to have no idea how to deal with their students disabilities.

Would like to see a better forum for student's to transfer to a mainstream environment. There appears to be little support for this. There is minimal preparation for students to move foward and that leaves the student "stuck" in this environment with little opportunity for the future.

I have nothing but good things to say about Challenger. My daughter spent quite some time in other school settings and did not succeed. When she started attending Challenger she felt like she finally fit somewhere. The low class numbers and the availabilty of the therapists really help her to be able ...  Read more

As a past student, who was refused services after two years of attending Bridgeview, I believe it lacks emotional needs and support for those who need it most.

My son has Asperger's Syndrome, and public schools intimidated him to the point that he could not think. Having no friends, he was an easy target for people who would take advantage of his naivety. In the small-school setting at Challenger, and being with others who 'think differently,' my son has blossomed. ...  Read more
