Bridgewater-Emery Middle School & High School

The Bridgewater-Emery School District has a rich history of high academic achievement, strong co-curricular programs, and community support for education. Between the middle school and high school, we typically serve around 165 students. Each and every student is important to us, and we are focused on providing them with the best educational opportunities. 

Here at Bridgewater-Emery, it is our duty to provide every student with the tools necessary to be successful post-graduation. Technology that is seamlessly integrated throughout the educational program is key to excellence in education. Increasing access to technology empowers students to maximize their full learning potential by promoting communication, critical thinking, problem-solving, and research skills.

All students are encouraged to participate in school and community activities. Our community and families are our most valuable educational resources. Together we will be an active force in the character development of our youth.

Busing Information

In the morning, there is a shuttle bus that brings kids from the elementary school in Bridgewater to the Middle/High School in Emery. The shuttle will then bring kids from Emery back to Bridgewater. The shuttle leaves the elementary gym doors at 7:40 am and arrives in Emery at 7:50 am. The shuttle bus returns to the elementary school at 8:10 am, depending on road conditions.

After school, there are three shuttle buses that bring elementary students from Bridgewater over to the Middle/High School in Emery. These buses leave Bridgewater at 3:20 pm and arrive in Emery at 3:30 pm. One of the shuttle buses returns to Bridgewater at 3:45 pm, while the other two buses continue on their routes.

ICU (Intensive Care Unit)

Students who have missing work and/or failing grades will receive extra help during the ICU (intensive care unit) session on the schedule. A data base will serve as the collection agency for students missing work or needing to redo work due to poor quality. Parents, students and all teachers receive notification when a student has been assigned to ICU. Staff are assigned to supervise and provide assistance during ICU. If a student is assigned to ICU, the student will not be allowed to leave school early for school activities.

High School Students not assigned to ICU are dismissed from school at 3:03. Middle School Students not assigned to ICU will have study hall, tutoring and/or supervised free time. A student who fails to stay for ICU will be required to make up ICU the following day or serve 30-minute detention the following day.

PBIS Rewards App

Our school uses PBIS Rewards to support our PBIS initiative. PBIS Rewards is a digital platform that allows our staff members to recognize any student, anywhere for meeting behavior expectations. These behavior expectations are defined by the school then communicated and taught. The points earned through that recognition may be used for special events, such as designated early release days.

As a family member, you can monitor your student's progress by downloading the app to your mobile device for free. You'll receive an email or letter with a QR code from your school. Simply open the app and scan this QR code. If you have multiple students using PBIS Rewards, you will be able to add each one separately.

Once the student is added to your app, you will be able to see how many points they have earned, which teacher rewarded them, and how they're spending their points. The app also has a convenient way to respond to messages sent by your child's teachers. You will also be able to see if your student receives any discipline referrals.

Please contact your child's teacher directly with any questions on the PBIS Rewards program or if you need a individualized QR code emailed to you.
