About Us

Building confidence and competence.

Every moment is a teaching moment at Bridges Middle School, an independent nonprofit school in Portland, Oregon, serving fifth through eighth grade students with learning differences. At Bridges, students ascend to new levels of confidence and competence in an environment of caring, trust, respect and excellent teaching.

Individualized learning and attention.

Bridges provides a highly creative and focused school setting for students who benefit from small class sizes and individualized instruction. Our goal is to give students with learning differences the academic foundation, social skills and confidence to successfully transition into, and graduate from, traditional high school settings or other specialized academic endeavors.
