The Hawbridge School5

The Hawbridge School has been a great match for my child. I am so happy I found a place he could thrive and belong! The academic and arts programs are wonderful, and the small class size helps the teachers to really focus on the needs of the individual children. My child has done well in this environment, has made lifelong friends and will graduate and go on to a good college. I couldn't be happier!
The small size of the school is ideal for the student who did not thrive in a traditional public school setting. The teachers are true educators -- committed, dynamic, and really interesting people. The curriculum is challenging and innovative. I'm grateful that my daughter was accepted into the first sixth grade class; we intend to keep her there through high school.
This is an ideal school for a student who thrives with extra attention, and close relationships with faculty and other students. There is no hype here. It's mainly about hands on learning and working in groups. The school is right next to a river, and this river is heavily utilized in the curriculum. This school is best for a student who is more interested in learning than competing for grades and extra credit experiences for college. They have a wide range of honors classes and some AP classes, but not as much as some of the nearby schools. The faculty is outstanding and the best part of the school.
My daughter is working alot better on her work since going to the school. I am very proud of her and the school is the best one I have seen around to make sure that the students feel comfortable and are learning everything and make sure they are not falling behind. Very good school for anyone to send their kid.
