Bridges Middle School does more than prepare our students for high school. We transform lives. Students with learning differences experience academic success and personal growth. They learn to navigate school — and life — with confidence and competence. Students leave Bridges with self-awareness and the tools to accomplish their goals despite their learning differences.
In our small classes, Bridges’ students flourish in a community of supportive teachers and peers. We strive to maintain a student-teacher ratio of nine to one and often even lower, compared with other public and private settings where class sizes often average 30 or more. This unique context allows individualized assistance, the development of a deep understanding of our students’ needs, and the ability to tailor lessons to build on the strengths and creative interests of each child.
Parents say Bridges is quite literally a lifesaver. We offer a range of social and emotional support to our students and their families. Our team of teachers, counselors and administrators bring a wide range of expertise from diverse backgrounds. They help students understand the complex nuances of middle school culture, provide responsive services for challenges that arise within the school community, and assist individual students by providing support and coaching at different stages of need.
