Bridges = Fun + Success in State College, PA

Collin Nelson

Students in the State College Area School District (SCASD) are exploring math in a fun, new way since adopting Bridges in Mathematics for the 2018–19 school year. But it’s not just fun and games—learning is happening too. On average, student test scores are up by 10% compared with any year since 2011.

“We’re really pumped up,” Assistant Superintendent for Elementary Education Vern Bock says. “What that’s saying is, each grade level as a whole is making more than a year’s worth of growth at this point if they continue on that trajectory.” We’re thrilled that SCASD has seen this much success in their first year of Bridges. And we’re excited about what’s yet to come. Read more about their success.
