Twelve Bridges Elementary School5

This is a superb school to send your children. Every year I find myself saying "well that was the BEST teacher ever.." and now in 4th grade with my oldest, the bar has again been raised. From day one in kindergarten I couldn't have asked for a more nurturing K-teacher who also pushed academics and taught at a level appropriate for my daughter (served individual needs rather than ignored them) - and that trend has continued throughout. These teachers are given a tremendous amount of support to push solid, fundamental academics, provide a wide range of activities and experiences, and above all teach these kids to be model citizens. We are so lucky to send our daughters here. Lastly, kudos to Mr. Cubias for setting a positive, fun, and open minded atmosphere at Twelve Bridges! Job well done!
Twelve Bridges Elementary is a wonderful community school. This school encompasses the whole child -- and teaches kids what it means to be a good student, caring individual and all around well rounded child. The principal, Mr. Cubias, is phenomenal. He truly cares about each student and has done great things with the school in his short time there. I have two GATE qualifying kids, and have opted to keep them at their home school. Seems like the bandwagon is to go the Charter School route, as if the education is better there. My kids have had a great education at 12Bridges and I only see the school getting better. I am a proud TBES parent.
Twelve Bridges Elementary is a fantastic school. My son excels in class and enjoys going to school everyday. The teachers and staff are wonderful. Our principal is amazing. He has three kids that go to the school as well, so he is extremely dedicated to making this school successful.
NWhat this school does have is great families and a great social structure, and wonderful parent-led classes/clubs or activities after school. What they are lacking is - as are all public schools - is anything but an average curriculum. Sadly, the teachers are forced to teach to the lowest performers, leaving kids who excel with not much to do for any type of challenge. And not all of the teachers here are spectacular, and the principal isn't the strongest leader. The science teacher is amazing however! I miss the families the most.
I have a daughter that has gone to TBE from 2nd and not in 5th and a son K and now in 2nd. For the most part we have been pleasantly surprised with the teachers and their involvement. Principle and VP are amazing and the ex. activities are wonderfule. Great involvement and support. We have to move and I wish I could bring TBE with me!
