  • Bridges School Staff are like a family. I love the way they interact with students and parents. My child has made leaps and bounds in Reading and Math. There reading program is the best i've ever seen. My child actually looks forward to going to school. Thanks Bridges staff.

  • Bridges is an excellent school and we are so lucky to have such outstanding people educating our son. The county school system insisted that our son would not perform at grade level, but at Bridges, he exceeds grade level. He came to Bridges with difficulties in reading as well as a speech problem. Now he loves to read and continues to excel in math. His speech problem is now almost nonexistent. I can't thank the staff at Bridges enough for improving my son's outlook on school and giving him the tools he needs to be a great student.
