• Welcome to Bridgman Elementary School

    Bridgman Elementary School is located in Southwest Michigan in Lake Township, just twenty miles north of the Indiana border. Situated on the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan, Bridgman is known as a tourist destination due to its beautiful sand beaches, wooded dune trails, and local shops. The community is rich in agriculture and farming, and local produce is abundant.

    Bridgman Elementary School prides itself on educating the whole child. Academic, social, emotional, and behavioral supports are implemented at every grade level.

    Elementary Parents — Remember when you pick up your child in a vehicle you must use the parking lot pick-up process. Students using the “walker door” should live in the neighborhoods surrounding the elementary school and walk (not catch a ride to avoid the pickup lane) to their homes at the end of the school day. Your cooperation in this matter is appreciated.

    Berrien RESA sponsors the free Parents as Teachers “Read, Play & Learn” playgroups for children 0-4 years old in the Bridgman Elementary MPR.
