The Bridges Community
The success of any great school is determined by the strength of its community. To reach their full potential, twice-exceptional students need to be with other twice-exceptional students who stimulate learning and create friendships. They need faculty members who respect their intelligence and who see them as talented young people, not as struggling disabled children. Twice-exceptional students thrive when their parents are in a supportive community with other parents who are seeking to understand and accept their children. When twice-exceptional children are educated in a community that values who they are -- one that defines them not by what they cannot do, but by the extraordinary things that they can do -- then these unique children have the best chance of growing into socially capable, goal-oriented, and highly educated men and women.
