Bridges Charter School

Mission Statement

The mission of BRIDGES Charter School is to educate the whole child using a combination of innovative curriculum and instruction along with social/emotional education embedded in the program. Students will be enabled to reach their innate intellectual, creative and leadership potential through our commitment to nourish curiosity, independence, resourcefulness, and respect for diversity.


BRIDGES K-8 Charter School is a tuition-free, public school, founded on Whole Child education and authentic parent participation, which advocates responsibility to our community and ourselves with a focus on health and sustainability.At BRIDGES, academic success in the 21st century is defined in terms of critical thinking, communication and problem solving skills, so we’ve developed a curriculum and school culture based on a Whole Child educational philosophy. When we speak of the 'Whole Child’, we mean that cognitive learning and academic mastery is most enhanced by building a learning community where every child feels healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged ... an environment where independence and intrinsic motivation are free to flourish. At BRIDGES, this means that compelling academics are only the beginning of a balanced and meaningful learning experience designed to facilitate the growth of each child’s unique identity and full potential. Our curriculum is structured to develop scholars who are intellectually knowledgeable, physically and emotionally healthy, civically active, artistically engaged, prepared for economic self-sufficiency, and ready to handle life’s future challenges constructively. This 'Constructivist' approach to learning, combined with a focus on ecological and social responsibility, fosters a sense of 'place' in the world, as well as a respect for both nature and humanity.
