Article excerpt

Seven Bridges School, founded in 2001, is a private school (Pre K through 12) located in Orange Park, serving students throughout Northeast Florida recognized as having averageutouaboveuaverage intelligence, yet compromised in achieving that level due to a learning style difference.

We maintain 10 or less students per teacher in all core classes.

Teachers and staff establish and maintain personal relationships with students through shared breaks, lunches and school activities. This encourages students to communicate openly in a friendly environment.

The school day begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m. Students may bring their own lunches or order from a monthly preuestablished menu. Students are grouped according to educational needs, receiving instruction in reading, language, composition, math, science, social studies and foreign languages.

Electives include art, drama, music and physical fitness, communication skills, fine arts studies and computer technology as integrated across the curriculum. In addition, Seven Bridges offers several afteruschool clubs, such as journalism, art and Lego. …
