The staff at the Hawbridge School try to provide an open and creative atmosphere for learning for all of their students. The administration is helpful and friendly, and the schools environment is tight-knit. The only things to be aware is that the school only has two sports it participates in ( Cross Country, Soccer), and the school does not have a cafeteria, which requires students to bring in their own lunches from home. This school has passionate teachers that hope and work towards seeing all of their students to succeed both at Hawbridge and in their future endeavours.

Charter schools are not automatically great at everything. Make sure you send your child here for the right reasons. The classes are a bit smaller. Most of the teachers are good, some are great and they care a lot. EC is great. But the curriculum is very restrictive. They don't allow you to take languages online. Your're no longer allowed to take AP classes until 11th grade - they won't budge on this. They have also started cutting back on some honors classes and require American History 1 now. But it is small and friendly and my student had some good learning experiences. Also had some classes where my daughter learned nothing for a full semester. It's just very uneven, depends on who the teacher is - there doesn't seem to be any professional development or oversight going on or any cohesiveness in teaching methods, teachers can do whatever they want - which can be very good... or not-so-good. On balance it evened out, I guess. Just know what to expect and be OK with restrictions.
My kids love this school! We all love the fact they can eat lunch outside everyday and seem to have time to do homework in Bridge. I really wish they could go back to the old way being out on the river and outside in general more, but I think most teachers take them out as much as possible. My kids have learned a lot and really like their teachers. Although there are a few teachers they should definitely consider replacing. On a whole, the teachers are great with several who go above and beyond! Administration have done a good job, although they have made some changes the kids are not in favor of. They could stand to have more options for clubs and after school activities.
