Bridges Academy Reviews

As a college graduate looking back, I have come to understand that this school does not set up its students as a school that claims to be a "College Prep" school.

I found myself struggling in my early time in college, which my professors revealed was due to the fact that I was never challenged in my writing. It is of note that while they have a graduate school now, is it unlikely that many of their students would be able to attend, as many have been forced to drop out.

Teachers were forced to be too lenient by admin (easy grades and many free extensions), plus many students didn't trust the in house counselor for good reason.

Food was overpriced (10 bucks was the cheapest)

Notable racism, anti-queer, and sexist feelings noted among students, not a place I'd recommended to women (harassment does and did occur)

I have not been back since graduation and would consider, as an alumni looking back now, to look elsewhere for educational needs, primarally for those with special needs.

Bridges Academy has an excellent teaching staff. The class sizes are kept small so that the teachers can interact with each student individually. The school allows students the time it takes for them to succeed. The drawbacks are that because the school is so small, only 20 students in the graduating class, there is a lack of resources, such as AP classes, that would help students qualify for some colleges. Overall, though, Bridges encourages personal and intellectual growth for each of its students.
Bridges Academy is a tiny private school with a highly individualized curriculum. The teachers often go out of their way to help struggling students catch up with the material and spend more one on one time with them. Most of the students are approachable, and often go out of their way to make newcomers feel welcome. The schoolwork is not too difficult but not too easy at times either.

The school's tiny population and location make it a safe and home-like environment. It is easy to get help. The teachers rarely change as well.

Bridges Academy isn't without flaws. The main downfall is the lack of a cafeteria, meaning students have to bring their own lunch. Owing to its small size, there isn't a large selection of classes available. The only sports are cross country running and basketball. Discipline is lax and some students often miss many days of school or fail to meet deadlines with little to no penalty. It is quite easy to pull off A grades without putting in quality work.
