Welcome to Bridgewater!

Bridgewater Elementary is a K-5 school that serves just over 500 students. Our mission is to be a respectful, successful, safe community of high-achieving learners. We offer a comprehensive core curriculum that includes a Spanish immersion option through our Compañeros program as well as specialists that provide student experiences in art, vocal, string, and instrumental music, physical education, and media.

We are located  on a 14-acre site on the south side of Northfield. It serves the neighborhood on Northfield’s southern side and the rural area south of Highway 19 and west of Highway 246.

Bridgewater is a friendly atmosphere dedicated to helping children find and develop their talents. Read more about our school.
