Springbridge International School meets and exceeds the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English language arts and mathematics as set forth by the California Department of Education.  Springbridge International School follows the Japanese Standard Curriculum and, separately, the Chinese Standard Curriculum.  Our kindergarten students are performing at various stages in the first grade for language arts and mathematics as measured by Scholastic Leveled Readers, Developmental Reader’s  Assessment and Singapore Mathematics.

Springbridge elementary students develop a sense of belonging and security in an international setting while learning to question, evaluate, compare, reason and problem solve bilingually.

Our carefully integrated curricula and specialized teaching methods utilize the advantages of the advanced cognitive abilities of the bilingual brain.  Our experienced teachers combine teaching concepts and content enabling more material to be covered, in depth, in less time.
