We currently cover the following Bridgewater-area school district: Bridgewater-Raynham Regional School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bridgewater District Curriculum
The district’s elementary schools use the Storytown program in their literacy classes. The district is committed to ensuring that students retain their learning from throughout the school year through the summer months and requires students to complete summer work packets in reading and math. Materials used to teach this curriculum include picture books, writing prompts, and charts. One of the biggest aspects of this curriculum lies in teaching students to critique writing so that they are able to do the same with their own writing.
As students move into their high school years, they are offered courses such as Drama, Advanced Placement (AP) Literature, and Romantic Realism. In Math and Science, AP courses are also offered which use a college level curriculum and through which students can earn college credit if they are able to score well on the end of year AP Exams.

Keeping Informed: Recent Bridgewater Educational News
- Principal Has Many Messages for Grads - Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High’s principal stood before the Class of 2014—a sea of 374 graduates wearing red and white. She told the students to never give up, to always treat others the way they would want to be treated, and to live their lives to the fullest. The class salutatorian told his peers that each of them has it in them to be successful.
- Seventh Graders Get “Feet-On” Experience - A Bridgewater-Raynham seventh grade Science and Technology class spent 36 days learning how the Engineering Design Cycle really works. The students got really hands-on, as they formed a shoe company, designed surveys to gauge what kind of shoe to make, created the prototype of the shoe, and marketed the footwear. They were really in for treat with the culmination of the unit when they were visited by engineers from Reebok who gave them an in-depth presentation about the process.
- Robotics Team News - Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High’s Robotics Team constructed a three-and-a-half foot tall, nearly 120 pound robot named TJ2. The group would take their robot to a competition at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, where TJ2 would compete in a series of matches against robots from 40 other area teams in order to gain as many points as possible. Bridgewater-Raynham’s team hoped to earn a berth in the international competition for the second consecutive year. TJ2 is able to race forward and backward, kick, and throw an exercise ball six feet in the air.

Chalk Talk: Educational Jargon: Planning Time
Planning time refers to a period of time in the school day during which the teacher does not have his/her students and can designate the time to planning lessons and activities for classes. Elementary school regular classroom teachers typically have the least amount of planning time—perhaps only the 40 minutes that their students attend specials (gym, art, music, etc.). They may also have a free 20- or 30-minute period when students are at lunch or recess, but with budget cuts, classroom teachers often now have responsibilities such as cafeteria, recess, or detention duties during this time. Specials and remedial teachers are not in charge of classes full of kids, so they may have more planning periods, but these also may be filled with the aforementioned extra duties. Secondary teachers usually have multiple free periods per day and typically do not have to worry about cafeteria or recess duty, but they may have to preside over in-school detention or dedicate their planning time to tutor struggling students.
