Having just finished the first long stretch of class before the Thanksgiving break, we asked our students about what they are thankful for. As an online school, to be honest, creating community has always been our greatest challenge, a regular concern, while also our top priority. As this sense of community and connection is so imperative to successful adolescent education, we were moved to know that our biggest challenge is also our biggest strength. All of the students shared that what they are most thankful for is the sense of connection with our Bridgemont Community and the personal attention they feel they get from our wonderful teaching team.
So, in service of sharing the gratitude, I am so so grateful with the extraordinary Montessori guides, students, and support staff that have allowed us to create this strong sense of community in such a short period of time. For any families that feel like they are missing this, I would love to invite you to set up a time to learn more about what we are doing and possibly join our awesome community.
