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.
