Bridge Prep has given our daughter a love of learning. She felt so defeated at her last school. Being in a place where she can learn the way she needs to learn, and being successful has helped her so much. Our son joined the Bridge Prep team this year too, and he loves school and his class. We are happy to have Bridge Prep available as an option. We are so glad we chose to become a part of this wonderful community.


I see such a difference in my child. She has an eagerness to go to school each day and comes home with a smile. The staff takes the time to know each child individually, and to a parent, that warms my heart.


Thanks to Bridge Prep staff and the OG curriculum, my child is making strides in reading and writing! He now seeks out books, and is so excited to be able to read with fluency. I really appreciate the SEL curriculum and support that Bridge Prep provides.


Words cannot express how truly grateful I am that my son attends Bridge Prep Charter School. The entire staff goes above and beyond for their students. Not only does my son receive the academic support that he needs, but he also receives a ton of social/emotional support as well. He wakes up every morning excited for school and cannot stop talking about it once he gets home! Bridge Prep is more than just my son's school, it is part of our family.
