The School - Bridge Boston Charter School is a comprehensive, full-service public school that opened in the fall of 2011 with 72 children in K1 and K2. Next year, the school will hold grades K1-7 with 333 students. We are chartered to expand by a grade each year until we serve 335 students in grades K1-8. Bridge Boston Charter School’s mission is to help our students thrive in a challenging, joyful, inclusive public school community that values close partnerships with families and a focus on the whole child. Through full-service programming, Bridge Boston Charter School works to remove the health and social obstacles that hinder student learning. This year we are serving students who are 39% ELL, 21% SPED, and 20% who have been or are currently homeless. To serve our students and fulfill our mission, the school is chartered to run an extended year and extended day program.
