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
