Mission

With an average class size of 17 children, High Bridge Elementary School is a nurturing educational community. Our highest priority is each student’s social, emotional and intellectual growth. Preschool through fourth grade participate in inclusive classrooms, receiving differentiated instruction for their specific needs. Full day Kindergarten is provided along with two self-contained special education classrooms serving students with behavioral disabilities and students with multiple disabilities.

Academics

While learning reading, writing and mathematics skills, students also receive weekly instruction in art, Spanish, music and library skills. Students participate in physical education twice a week and teacher-supervised recess each day. Instrumental music instruction begins in 3rd grade, with band and chorus in grade four. Technology remains to be a priority with computer enhanced lessons beginning in pre-school and continuing through fourth grade. Each student has access to Chromebooks.

Clubs

The High Bridge Elementary School offers co-curricular after school activities such as Environmental Club, Young Author’s Club and Art Club. Students also participate in a daily news broadcast.

Teachers

The faculty at High Bridge Elementary School strive to enhance our own professional growth to strengthen our students’ skills and abilities. In addition to improving academically, we work hard to instill self-confidence, positive decision-making skills and a sound foundation for future growth. Our goal is to cultivate a lifelong love of learning in our students.

Supports

The Basic Skills teachers use the Language Literacy Intervention program to assist students who require extra support in the area of reading. They also incorporate Fundations into their sessions. In math, we utilize touch math strategies to reinforce the foundational skills of math. Our teaching staff, guidance counselor, school nurse and Child Study Team are here to provide academic and behavioral support for students in need.

Social and emotional learning is a vital part of our district's plan to help our students establish and maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions.
