Luis Muñoz Marín School opened in January, 1992. We are a pre-kindergarten through eighth grade school with more than 900 students. The 110,000 square foot building with 35 classrooms and specialized facilities, including a Media Center, Computer, Industrial Technology, Art, Music, and Science labs, is located at 479 Helen Street, Bridgeport, CT. Along with traditional classes, Luis Muñoz Marín School offers a wide variety of extra-curricular sports, academics, and recreational activities.
The building was named the Luis Muñoz Marín School in recognition of Luis Muñoz Marín, born on February 18, 1898. He was the son of Luis Muñoz Rivera, Puerto Rico's Resident Commissioner in Washington. Luis Muñoz Marín was educated in the United States, where he studied law and journalism. In 1948, when the people of Puerto Rico elected their first governor, Luis Muñoz Marín won the office by an overwhelming margin, and was re-elected in 1952, 1956, and 1960. The school was dedicated on May 3, 1992, to honor his achievements. Luis Muñoz Marín serves as a guiding star for students to strive to meet their goals.
