Bridges opened on September, 2013 as a fully-independent, federally recognized not-for-profit, offering Preschool through 8th grade, an “all-through” school with no need to change schools at various grade points.
Bridges provides an academically accelerated curriculum in a nurturing environment with a teaching staff dedicated to preparing students for life in an interdependent world. Pre-School years are the formative learning period in a child’s life, where children grow on many levels and Bridges prepares a child for a lifetime of learning with small class sizes and a curriculum shaped to individual needs. Our K-8 program is world class, tracking students individually through academically accelerated programs that include Mandarin and French language, Robotics, music, arts, theater, science, mathematics and advanced reading skills.
In June, we celebrated the end of the 2014-2015 school. We are so proud of our 8th graduating class and their accomplishments. We were also thrilled to see all our other students move up to their next grade at the graduation ceremony.
Our school is growing tremendously. We thank all of our great faculty for their contributions and are much grateful to our parents for their generosity and support that has enabled our school flourish.
