The original Bassick High School building was dedicated in 1925 and designed by Bridgeport Architect Ernest G. Southey. According to Bridgeport Historian, Charles Brilvitch, it was considered "one of the most beautiful schools in America.'

Ernest G. Southey designed many of the most iconic buildings in Bridgeport which included the Mechanics & Farmers Savings Bank, City Savings Bank, Bijou Theater, the President of the University of Bridgeport's residence, the original bathhouse in Seaside Park, and more. Mr. Southey was a member of the American Institute of Architects and has several designs on the National Register of Historic Places.

By signing this petition you are supporting the Hybrid Architectural Design which maintains the original building; with a comprehensive renovation, while demolishing the current addition and replacing it with a modernized addition. Our students would have the best of both worlds!

You also support our Bassick High School students having a 21st Century state-of-the-art school building which prepares them for a future filled with opportunity and success while preserving a meaningful piece of Bridgeport's history!
