An Introduction to Newbridge Academy
Why a Bilingual Education
makes a world of difference
Exposure to different cultural perspectives from around the world. Students are expected to develop an understanding and acceptance of other people and cultural viewpoints.
Students learn to see individual issues within the context of the global socio-cultural significance, gain awareness and a deep appreciation of our world's cultural diversity.
Learning to respect, value and understand one's self and culture helps students develop self-awareness and value their cultural distinct heritage.
"Newbridge Academy is truly a hidden gem in the lower mainland school system. Our family could not be happier with our choice to enroll our son at Newbridge and our expectations have been far exceeded!
The teachers are a team of experienced, nurturing and dedicated educators who are approachable, collaborative, and truly have the children’s best interests at heart. They provide astute, honest, and thoughtful assessments of their students and are very much in tune with their student’s needs.
Likewise, the families are equally engaged and committed to ensuring an exceptional educational experience for their children.
The small class sizes ensure that each child’s educational trajectory can be closely monitored and redirected quickly and effectively if necessary.
And of course the added bonus of a bilingual English and Mandarin education is unparalleled in the region. Mandarin is the most relevant and useful second language in our current and future world. After attending French Immersion last year, our son had little to no knowledge of Mandarin. But after only 3 short months under the tutelage of the amazing Newbridge teachers, he is well on his way to becoming bilingual! It has been incredible.
Newbridge is truly an exceptional and special school that our family feels lucky to be a part of!"
