New Bridge School Photo #1 - We own a beautiful 2-acre campus which includes a ball-field, large playground, sports blacktop, outdoor stage, lunch arbor, tree-lined courtyard, stream, and lush landscaping.
  • NewBridge School is designed for students with language-based learning disabilities.
  • We specialize in teaching students with average to above average intelligence who require different instructional methods.
  • Our teachers are expert in balancing high academic standards with supportive, analytical teaching styles.
  • We provide strategy-based instruction that focuses on teaching students HOW to learn rather than simply going through the materials.
  • Students who may struggle in a public school environment flourish in our intentionally small classrooms (8:1). This gives our teachers the ability to truly get to know each student, allowing them to better understand their strengths and challenges, and personalize their approach.
  • We integrate Speech and Language and Occupational Therapy into the classroom to maximize progress.
  • 1:1 iPad Program to enhance learning, aid students with their differences, and bring content to life in a way that is more engaging
