What we do

The BHS Educational and Cultural Ecosystem

The main priority of Bridge Haven School is the well-being and emotional health of young people.  All programming, policy, and funding decisions are made with their best interest in mind.  Our focus is to create a positive learning experience for everyone.

BHS strives to enhance the quality of life in the North Bay by offering innovative, diverse, learning opportunities for children through education, events, civic participation, and scholarship.

The Five Pillars

Learning Environment

Respect   ♦   Responsibility   ♦   Collaboration   ♦   Kindness

The SCT studio serves as a modern-day version of a one-room schoolhouse for community classes.  Many of our creative courses are hosted in The Imagination Sanctuary.

Hands-on projects related to the theme are placed throughout the space amidst a backdrop of visual art, literature, science, and geography.

Creative Approach Curriculum takes learning outside the walls of traditional classrooms.  The educational environment is utilized in a variety of unexpected places; inviting children to explore, communicate and experience authentic lessons with real purpose.

Go With The Flow is a self-paced program using the latest technology.  (iPads, eTextbooks, and learning Apps, MacPro and Chromebook).

Students develop their own independent projects based on interest or join the Main Theme lessons.  Choose a schedule that fits your child’s unique needs and goals.  Students will also participate in our peer connection group known as BEARS.

Forest School is an environmental and Outdoor Education program held at local regional parks.

Individual Achievement

Social-Emotional Learning   ♦   Holistic Education   ♦   Child Empowerment

BHS wants all students to have access to quality programming and opportunities.  Therefore, it is important to match children to the classes that are most suitable for them.  The staff makes every effort to place students into proper groups depending on current abilities and prior experience.

The educational is Authentic, Relevant and  Specifically designed for each stage of your child’s journey toward independence.  Programs reflect real community life accommodating different learning styles, abilities, and interests.
