This is an amazing school in an up and coming neighborhood. The principal is awesome and the teachers care. Recess is valued and the students learn using a variety of methods.

This review is for the middle school portion of Bridger, I do not know how good the elementary school is. The middle school program is atrocious.

We have been very pleased with Bridger and especially the Spanish Immersion program. I love the diversity of the school and the energy of the teachers and principal. Many of the parents are very involved in the school and are working to improve it on many levels.
