Mission & Vision

Bridges High School provides a small school environment where students focus on building positive relationships with community members.

Our curriculum is designed with:

  • state and district standards
  • thematic topics of study in each subject area
  • individualized instructional support
  • access to the CDLS platform
  • experiential learning days
  • volunteer hours in the community
  • Senior Capstone Projects
  • opportunities to take additional classes at CMC
