Getting to Know YOUR School

New Bridge Middle School

New Bridge is Onslow County’s only magnet middle school.  While the building was in operation in the 1930s as Jacksonville High School, New Bridge opened as a technology, math and science magnet in 1998.   Students attend by way of a lottery or through home district status.  The teachers and staff appreciate the supportive nature of our parents and other stakeholders.   We recognize that education is a shared responsibility.



Do you know that the schools in Onslow County are each guided by vision, mission and purpose statements?  These statements represent our effort to communicate the direction of New Bridge Middle School and the value we place on learning.
