Bridge Prep provides students and families who need our structured, multi sensory programming, with a free, public school option in their community and prevents them from being forced to leave Staten Island or New York City to find a school that meets their needs.
OUR CORE BELIEFS
The schools that children attend can make a difference in their reading and academic achievement. Research shows that without early intervention, the reading gap between struggling readers and their peers will continue to widen over time. In order to ensure that students are able to experience academic success, they must be fully immersed in an academic environment designed to meet their needs.
Bridge Prep provides students on Staten Island with an innovative, student-centered learning environment that challenges them with academic rigor, builds their resiliency and fosters both academic progress and social and emotional growth. Our students are positioned for long-term, sustained academic success, put them on a path of expanded opportunity and serve as a place for students that will be better served in a unique, personalized academic community.
We believe that families must be well informed and involved in order to make decisions for, and with their student(s). We recognize that a true partnership and trusting relationship between the school and families will result in an increased level of achievement for our students.
