About Bridge View

  • Mission Statement: We exist to provide an enriching, individualized education for students in grades K-12 with significant developmental cognitive disabilities to be transition ready.

    Our Vision: A premier school that educates students with exceptional disabilities.

    Bridge View School is a federal setting 4, K-12, specialized special education school that serves the learning needs of students with severe and profound low-incident developmental disabilities. A highly dedicated, resourceful and caring staff creates a meaningful school experience designed around the unique learning needs of the students. Bridge View educates students with severe and profound developmental disabilities ages 5 through 18.

    The students are the heart of the program. Special accommodations and modifications empower students to progress in the general curriculum. Students are prepared for post-school success in community involvement, work opportunities, job training and life skills. Bridge View is a one-story, barrier-free school. A caring and dedicated staff works closely with parents to set achievable goals. 

    We help students learn to communicate, make choices, understand the world they feel and see, and what they have the potential to be. All kids "fit in" and are welcome at our school because of the nurturing environment. Because of the many specialized services at Bridge View School, there are no barriers, only challenges that can be overcome.
