The quality of the local schools was supposed to be an attraction to Bridgewater. The truth is the schools seem to fall short of their reputation. The do not offer services that can be found in many surrounding districts. They no longer have full day Kindergarten. They do not have Spanish instruction for their K-4. They do not have orchestra for their 4th grade. They do not have Mock Trial for their K-4, etc. Milltown is a prime example,. All of the students in the Gifted & Talented program for K-4 has been moved to another school in the district, so no real enrichment classes at Milltown. They use tracking for math, in a system that is not very flexible, or kid friendly. The lower and middle level kids do skill and drill ditto work. Sad that it's come to this. The one upside is a very high level PTO organization and involvement.

The way they let in the students in the morning time is horrible. It gets so crowded that there is a high chance of accidents. Secondly, the receiving staff spends most of her time looking at the clock rather than receiving students. The receiving staff closes the door prior to the allotted time and they are gone. Once, you get in we have receptionist with no brain, so its useless to talk to her.

This school has primarily good, effective teachers, however a highly ineffective principal, who in adittion to numerous inadequacies, also supports these ineffective teachers.

This is a wonderful school! The principal genuinely cares about every student. We had a few issues, they were taken seriously & were resolved in a reasonable time. My experience with the school is that they not only give the children a superior education but the kids are also taught a love of learning.

Nice Campus & good folks - I have to write a few words about Mr. Whelan who teaches Kindergarten - he is the best I have come across in terms of quality of engagement with kids, the things he teaches and preaches - I woould say that he shoudl be chosen a role model for Kindergarten teachers - every student loves him, adores him and respects him - I am happy my son is a student of Mr. Whelan

This is a new school in our district and we have a Kindergarten and 3rd grade student that attend. We are very happy with the teachers they got this year. Both children really love the school and the friends they've made. Parent involment is pretty good. The office staff and principle are very helpful and are willing to help with any problems you may have. We absolutely love the nurse. She puts the safety of all children first.
