Academics

hblogojust-iconSMOur faculty-designed Hawbridge Model involves differentiated, individualized instruction to foster academic, behavioral, emotional and social development; interdisciplinary teaching; place-based education; discovery-based learning; and most importantly, sustaining a community where everyone feels appreciated and included.

Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, The Hawbridge School will adopt a Place-Based Education model.

Place-based education (PBE) immerses students in local heritage, cultures, landscapes, opportunities and experiences, using these as a foundation for the study of language arts, mathematics, social studies, science and other subjects across the curriculum. PBE emphasizes learning through participation in service projects for the local school and/or community. (Source: http://www.promiseofplace.org/)
