We Have Moved!
You can now find us at 2510 SW First Avenue, in the heart of downtown Portland, Oregon 97201. Our new facility boasts floor to ceiling windows, large open floor plan with spacious classrooms, a beautiful reception area, full kitchen, art room, private counseling offices, indoor play area, outdoor fenced play areas, private parking lot – and 100% lead-free water! It’s not just beautiful, it is safe! Our new building was recently remodeled including seismic safety retrofitting, new fiber optic telecommunication lines, new HVAC and security systems, and electric and pluming upgrades. Most importantly, its central location with convenient access from freeways and Naito Parkway, enables more families to access a Bridges education.
Access is critical. As one of the few schools in Oregon devoted to students with learning differences and the only one focused exclusively on middle school, Bridges offers its students small class sizes, differentiated instruction, and a safe place to learn and grow. For many Bridges students, this means the difference between effective learning and being passed along. It means positive social and emotional growth rather than isolation or, worse, bullying. As one eighth grader put it, Bridges “got me to a place that I felt I could never get to. It show[ed]us that we can succeed, learn, make friends, and have fun in school.”
We invite you to contact our office to schedule a school tour and meet with admissions staff to learn how we can help your student succeed in school—and life.
