BRISTOL, Conn. (WTNH) — News 8’s meteorologist Gil Simmons paid a visit to Bristol Central High School on Friday for the last stop on his Education Express Tour.
Principal Peter Wininger, who has been in charge of the school for 12 years, said the school has a wide variety of programs and activities throughout the school and “everybody takes great pride in what we do.”
“Wherever we’re successful, everybody shares in that success and really gets behind the student athletes, the performers, the students and teachers, everyone,” Wininger said.
Bristol Central is highlighting the championship boys and girls track team, Latin scholars, the valedictorian, state championship basketball team, para Educator of the Year, and unified sports and theatre students.
The boys and girls track team is ready to be back following the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Bristol Central High Latin students recently took the national Latin exam and state Latin exam, where 31 students placed nationally and 26 placed in the state. The teacher explained that they’re “quite an enthusiastic group of students” ranging in different Latin levels. One student said that Latin is the best class you could ever take.
