• On behalf of the faculty and staff at Jettie S. Tisdale School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school’s website.   Tisdale School is a pre-kindergarten through eighth grade school serving 686 students with 89 affiliated staff members. Named after the late educator, Jettie S. Tisdale, our state of the art school was built in 2008.  It took the place of the old McKinley School, which was originally erected in 1908.  Robert Mitchum, a famous alum of the original Tisdale School, is proof that students from Bridgeport can make it "big" if given the right tools and teaching in the arts.  

    Our goal as educators is to support all students academically and socially.  We will make every effort to ensure that all students leave Tisdale ready to succeed in high school.  The faculty and staff at Jettie S. Tisdale School continue to encourage all students to set high goals for themselves and to reach for their dreams.
