Bridgeway Educational Support Team also believes that much learning comes from play. We enjoy an hour of lunch/recess time on our regular school days. Students experience the joys of free play in the wide open outdoors. Our school has a fenced playground for the younger students to enjoy; however, we find that all our students - regardless of age or ability - voluntarily play together and often strike up a game of baseball, soccer, volleyball, tag, or frisbee.
BEST believes in the concept of a "living education." In addition to the academic we teach and tutor on regular school days, BEST students can choose to participate in fun and educational Field Trips. We generally try to find facilities that offer special "Homeschool Days" and discounts. Students enjoy the social time with other homeschoolers. Unlike some homeschool groups, BEST's Field Trips are open to the general homeschool community as well! Each family is responsible for their own transportation and admission fees.
