2017-18 School Performance Report

    The Bremerton School District is very proud of our students' accomplishments. Each year, the Bremerton School District compiles data for a report to families and the community to highlight each school's academic performance and goals. These reports, released in the fall, include information from the previous school year and are available electronically and at each school in the main office.
