The school's curriculum does not allow for a 'middle school' experience. Many of the students are taking as many as 3 Language classes and 2 Math classes. The principal and teachers seem to be very hard-working and fair.

The Principal is dedicated to the school and to its success.

CST* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2012
Bridges Academy
Franklin-mckinley Elementary School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
