Student Testimonials

“It’s good to be in Bridges because if you don’t like larger classes, it’s smaller and better for people who have trouble with focus.”

“I like my friends and the teachers. I’m doing better than all of my other years. I like it because of the fun things that the teachers let us do.”

 

 “Bridges helps because the classes are smaller so it’s easier to get help. Friday Activities are the best!”
