What kinds of previously unsuccessful students do well at The Bridge Avenue School?
Students who have learning differences and are behind in reading and math find success at TBAS because we have small classes, individual instruction, and teach to many different learning styles.
Students who have been bullied in other schools because they have social anxiety or make friends slowly find a family environment at TBAS. Often, students who have had attendance issues in the past come to school every day.
Students who are bored in school can work on special projects and challenge themselves at TBAS. We address academic weaknesses but also build on academic strengths.
Who does not do well at The Bridge Avenue School?
Students who continue to have poor attendance do not do well at TBAS. Success depends on active, daily participation building relationships with student and adult leaders.
Students who need all-day, one-on-one care to focus and participate in the school day are not invited to remain at TBAS. Students may participate in one-on-one tutoring or individual classes while otherwise participating in an age-appropriate way during the rest of the school day.
Students who cannot participate appropriately in group settings like a cafeteria or museum field trip are not invited to remain at TBAS. We work very hard on academic and character development but we do not serve students with persistent severe behavior issues.
