School Reviews

5  
Bridges Academy is a recommended school. My kids they loved. They don`t want to go to another school. They grow the oldest ones from PreK-4 to 5th grade and the youngest daughter from nursery to 3rd grade. Teachers are sociable and so familiar. All staffs are so nice. Especially Ms. Campbell is the backbone of bridges.
