BRONX BRIDGES strives to build a small community where EVERY student is known personally and supported in achieving their intellectual, linguistic, and social-emotional potential. Teachers and staff work closely with students to help them achieve their academic goals and explore their interests and passions. Our community is designed to meet the needs of English Language Learners. BRONX BRIDGES honors and values the contributions of all members of our community-students, parents, school faculty and staff, educational partners, and the local community. Our students’ cultural and linguistic backgrounds are an integral part of our academic work. We are committed to assisting students in maintaining the richness of their personal histories and providing them with a sense of their place in the greater community. We provide an academically rigorous and intellectually challenging experience to ensure ALL students are in a position to positively impact their community and access opportunities in the broader society. Our graduates are prepared to meet the challenging demands of a university education and ready to succeed in the 21st century workplace.
Bronx Bridges is looking for dynamic individuals who have a sanguine attitude to beat odds and make success the only option. Candidates should have demonstrated an affinity for working with and for English Language Learners.
