Simpson Elementary School was built in 1909, and was the original Bridgeport High School. It became an elementary school when a new high school was built. A multipurpose room was added and is used as our cafeteria, gymnasium and auditorium. With growth, a new wing was built in 1975, which currently houses our K-2 classrooms and our computer lab. Many renovations have taken place over the years. In 2010 a new addition was added with 10 new classrooms and a new office complex. In the 2014-15 school year the 1909 tower was taken down and 7 new classrooms were added and a remodeled cafeteria. Bridgeport United Methodist Church has been and is a partner in all of the school growth with the use of parking lots around the buildings.
