Bridgeport Elementary is proud to announce that we have received the 2015 New York State School of Character and the 2015 National School of Character. These awards serve as a testament to the commitment of faculty, parents, students, and community members to the success of all students at Bridgeport Elementary School.
In our school of character, adults embrace their critical role as models. Teachers work together as professionals—and with parents and community members as partners—to positively shape the social, emotional, and character development of our students.
