Bridge City ISD's tax rate is a mere 2 ten-thousandths from being the lowest in the county. Based on current law, a school district must lower their tax rate as appraisal values increase. In examining the preliminary tax values that the school district has received from The Orange County Appraisal District, Bridge City ISD anticipates lowering taxes once again for the 2021/2022 school year!

Bridge City ISD does this while maintaining our academic and extracurricular offerings through a comprehensive and well-balanced program. These programs work to develop well-rounded graduates that our school district and community can be proud of!
