The Burnham Hustle

These days at The Burnham School in Bridgewater, students are able to experience a vast array of engaging and fun challenges that keep them in a growth mindset. Both floors of the building are filled with exciting activities ranging from illustration and crafts, to fun ways of learning grammar and vocabulary.

By choosing books that speak directly to them, writing their own stories, and designing original characters and creatures, the students are able to experience the wonder of creation while also sharing their ideas and perspectives.
