Bridge to Independence school will ensure that each student acquires the skills, attitudes and knowledge necessary to reach their full potential. Our students will be fully equipped with the necessary skills to meet the challenges of middle school and beyond. Our concern and focus is on reading and the development of the child through rigorous academics, training in the arts, sciences and character education.

Technology is a critical tool in the information age and is a part of the daily routine in each classroom. Internet access: classrooms have an average of two student computer workstations with internet and support software based on identified individual needs and student’s learning styles and learning goals. The classrooms have smart boards (white boards) to develop multimedia lesson banks and projects in core academic disciplines, on-line access to reference resources and access to the school’s instructional software collections.

PTLW STEM Program engages K-5 students in hands-on learning. They tackle open-ended challenges using structured approaches, like the engineering design process and the scientific method.
