I have attend lunch with my children at Bridges. When the lunch room gets loud they must raise their hands in the air and be silent, if this happens to often then they all must have a silent lunch. There is often a great deal of teasing and bulling.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted July 24, 2010

My kids have been attending Bridges for 4 years now and it has been a wonderful experience! I love that my children are encouraged to thrive not only academically, but also by using everyday life skills. The teachers really seem to care about the kids and are willing to go the extra mile to make school a positive experience.
