Fifth grade is a pivotal year; elementary students are blossoming into middle school students. At Bridlewood, we want our students to thrive in middle school and beyond. We are guiding them to be lifelong learners and problem solvers in both cooperative and independent settings. Many of the academics we teach develop a deeper understanding of science and language arts skills. This year is the first real introduction of American history at the elementary level from the early explorers to modern day. We take math to a new level with our personal finance unit that focuses on real life connections that are essential to successful lives of the future.
