Celebrating our 25th Year

We are thrilled to be celebrating 25 years of exceptional learning, and we need your help to commemorate this momentous occasion. 

Since 1998, Bridges Middle School has stayed true to its mission, to provide a safe and enriching academic environment where students with learning differences can explore their role in the world as learners and members of the community. We are proud to be the only middle school in Oregon specifically designed for students with learning differences. We understand the unique needs of our students and are committed to creating a safe, nurturing environment where they can thrive academically, emotionally, and socially.

Over 25 years, we know that Bridges has made a lasting impact on the lives of hundreds of students, the dedicated staff members who served them, their parents, grandparents and aunts and uncles who witnessed them blossom and grow at Bridges. We want to hear from you – the amazing people who have been a part of Bridges over the past two and a half decades. Your stories are what make Bridges the magical place it is today.
