“As a former teacher of 16 years, the reason we moved to Bridgeland was for the schools. I love being a part of a true master planned community where all of the kids that live here go to the schools in the community. We have been through Pope, Smith and now BHS and could not be happier with the amazing teachers and staff at each campus. They truly love teaching and want the best for each child. I have a child with learning disabilities. I have truly been blown away by the effort that has been given to help my child succeed.”
- Amy Lippincott, Bridgeland Resident
“Education was definitely a factor in us choosing our community where we would raise our kids. [Bridgeland is] a community where our children can ride their bikes to school. From day one the professionalism of the staff and teachers were second to none. The teachers have a heart of gold and invest in each and every child. We will have a child at Smith Middle School and our twins will attend with their brother and sister, so 4 kiddos at Pope this year.”
- Becky McKeehan, Bridgeland Resident
