Welcome to Bridgman High School
Bridgman High School (BHS) is a public high school in a small town located on Lake Michigan, in the southwestern corner of the state. Weko Beach is a popular tourist attraction, and we have many visitors during the summer who frequent our community because of our beautiful beaches.
Supporting students academically and socially-emotionally, as well as preparing them for post-secondary opportunities is our goal at BHS. We set high academic expectations for all students while promoting equity and access.
We are committed to preparing students to be life-long learners by making sure all students are prepared for post-secondary opportunities. In addition to our high rigor and academic expectations, we are also committed to offering students many college-credit and career opportunities in high school. We offer several in-house Advanced Placement (AP) classes and additional courses in which students can take the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) test for college credit. Even though we are a small school, we want to provide our students with as many opportunities as possible. BHS has a large student population enrolled in Career Technical Education (CTE) and Early Middle College (EMC)
At BHS, we provide resources to inspire resilient and collaborative critical thinkers.
