The Bridge Program

The Bridge Program students receive all of the needed requirements to be successful in the years to come as defined by the New Hampshire State Standards. This new community provides a safe and secure environment for the students to share, learn, and gain the social skills necessary for mainstream success. Additionally, this program meets the needs of those students who would benefit from a small group setting with a lower student to teacher ratio than is available in a regular classroom. The program also features an experiential learning component to facilitate great academic involvement for those students who have difficulty initiating and maintaining appropriate connections with peers and staff.

Unlike the traditional classroom, the Bridge Program allows time to process problems within the group and to allow the students to become experts on their own needs, skills, and build on their unique individual strengths. Program staff will help the students learn to manage their own behaviors. The behavior management and intervention plan will teach the students effective and constructive ways to deal with stressful and emotionally challenging situations. This community is designed specifically to build upon the opportunity for growth and to maintain student dignity.
