My high school experience at NBECHS was like no other. For one, its a middle college so I take college courses and high school classes. Coming in as a freshman, I was terrified but walking onto a community college as a fourteen year old taking my first college class with older people, I was even more terrified. Gladly, My faculty and peers were so helpful. My AVID program was amazing for preparation. I loved that our high school was small because everyone knew everyone. That's something no one could get out of a regular high school is that connection. My pep rallies were small to everyone but big to me. The friends you meet freshman year still stick with you to senior year. Taking all my classes, doing sports, and working a job was no walk in the park. It was hard but I challenged myself to see what I can do and that's what my high school did exactly. My high school experience overall was amazing and not only did I learn so many new things about my education but also about life.
Here at the Bridge is a local school where everybody knows each other because of how "limited" our school is. Having the privilege attending a community college taking University level classes really impacts how we set ourselves for our future and that is probably why this school has a 100% graduation rate and 90% of all students get into college.
At Bridge, I had learned a lot about college and had experienced first hand how to manage college classes along with high school classes, and other responsibilities. I felt it was the best school to go to in completing many of my college generals will still in high school. The only place I felt could use some more improvement was also putting the focus on different life skill/ incorporating life skill classes. Such as home econ. and various shop classes (wood, motor, clay)
My experience at Nuview Bridge Early College High School was amazing. I went there from freshman to senior year (2008-2012). Made great friends. We were treated like young adults and not just high school kids. The teachers are wonderful. I learned so many things about life, myself, and academics as well.
The school is small which makes it like a family. You are actually a name cared about by the teachers and they make sure you are learning and understanding rather than just barely passing below average. Not only are academics great and the school offers great opportunities to get a head start on college classes; the athletic teams are also league champions. The sports are also supported by the majority of the student body as students always show up to support the teams even at away games. The counselors are also a great help with college information, future careers and not only a long term plan, but also help you accomplish what you need to do in order to get there.
This school prepares you for college and you are allowed to voice your opinions from time to time. You are giving the opportunity to take both high school and college class.
Nuview Bridge Early College High School is a wonderful high school overall. It is a great place for one to great ahead in life regardless of the their background. It is important for those who seek to reach for a better life to surround themselves with other intelligent hardworking people, who can help them learn and grow as a person in many ways.
The best part about Nuview Bridge is the college readiness. Nuview allows students to take college courses while still in high school. The only bad part about this is the workload. Students are bombarded with work from high school and college. The teachers here are decent. If the student puts in the effort to learn and pass the class, they will succeed. There is a lack of diversity at this school. Specifically, there is a lack of Asian representation at this school. Our school tries its best to provide fun activities. Safety is not currently an issue to me and I feel safe at this school. The administration will try their best to provide good information to whoever needs it. School culture is lacking because not many students are fond of this school. The sports here are okay; we are more focused on academics rather than sports. Resources and facilities are used by many of the students here. Not many parents are involved, but they do get involved if the school sends an important email.
It held amazing teachers who were passionate about teaching and provided a great learning environment.
What I enjoy most about this school is the atmosphere. This high school is unlike an others, there are no fights and most students are friendly. This school has an exceptional way in which you can advance your studies by taking advantage of their dual enrollment program. I personally have taken classes at Moreno Valley and Mount San Jacinto. The teachers push students to thrive.
My favorite thing about the Bridge is that it treats everyone as a family. No matter what situation one may be facing, there will always be someone for one to talk with. Whether it be a teacher, the office staff, or our school psychologist, there is someone there to talk to.
The main thing I liked about Nuview Bridge was the faculty. A lot of the teachers and other staff were amazing and like family. This was nice since the school took pride in everyone being a family. The one thing that I would probably change would be the size and location of the school, it was a small campus and there wasn't much around.
It was roller coaster attending this school. It was fun at time but stressful during the final and other exams. The best part of the school is the opportunity of taking college classes and get a lead in being college ready.
I really love how small the school is. You really get to know everyone, students and faculty.
I also really enjoy that while taking high school classes, you also take college classes at the local community college. I feel that it has really prepared me to go on to a four-year university.
Nuview Bridge is a smaller school with about 700 students in total. This gives us a better experience with our teachers and classmates. Teachers learn our names even after we have moved out of their class. The classes about 25 students per class so we get to know everyone which cares on through all four years. The classes are rigorous and a lot of work but going to this school, you are expected to be able to handle the workload and extra curriculars.
I really like attending Bridge. It is such a small place, but it's warming and welcoming. I have gotten high school and college experience, which is great.
Compared to other schools Nuview Bridge seems like it doesn't have much. The campus is small, our athletic teams are not the greatest, and the food is ...edible. Even though these things are true, the school is what you make it. We aren't big but, we are strong, and as knights we put up a fight, defend each other, and don't quit until we have achieved our goals. The students here don't have much time for themselves as we are in work for our future. We have to fight our temptations to want to do what other students at different schools do. Not having much free time as we are always busy with school, college, sports, clubs, community service, and jobs. I've noticed that the students here go above and beyond and usually do more than what is expected. The teachers push us into doing more as well because they know we are capable of it even if we don't think so. We make things happen rather than just being part of a crowd.
Life at Bridge is one of the best years I've had so far. Everyone has a goal: Go to college. To get there, we're given a plethora of opportunities. There are also numerous clubs and activities for everyone to interact with people who share interests. The sports programs are provided for those with athletic passions. Despite all of these, there are a few flaws with how everything is. A major problem is students not being able to take classes, due to the demand of upperclassmen, thus putting students behind in requirements and goals. This would include both high school and college classes. Other problems are minor and pertain to students taking advantage of priviledges and freedoms we are given. I would hate to have those taken away when others try everything to test the limits. But, overall, the school is amazing. The administraion is always open to new ideas and new ways to reach out to students.
