At Bridge International Academies, we believe that every child has the right to a high quality education.
We deliver carefully prepared standardized, yet customizable, lessons across all our schools. We also create our own books, materials, teaching songs and symbols for enabling positive behavioral management, and more. All this combined makes for a very engaging experience for pupils.
We focus on the results our pupils achieve and the time teachers spend on each aspect of the lesson, this has been proven as essential to delivering an effective basic education. We ensure regular monthly assessments across all our schools – to assess progress against specific learning objectives – for pupils, teachers, academy managers, parents and of course, for Bridge itself.
We always teach the curriculum of the individual countries in which we operate. But the lesson plans we use to deliver it are developed and prepared by world leading education experts at Bridge. We place a greater focus on basic literacy, numeracy, and critical thinking skills in early grades than in other schools.
Teacher lesson plans are delivered through data-enabled tablets, which seamlessly sync with our technology platform, giving us the ability to record attendance – of both pupils and teachers -and assessment scores, monitor lesson pacing and measure pupil comprehension in addition to providing the lessons themselves.
We believe that it’s essential to support teachers. Our pre-prepared lessons include step-by-step instructions explaining what teachers should do and say during any given moment of a class. This allows us to bring best-in-class instruction, international expertise and curriculum specialists into every one of our classrooms no matter where they are.
Our teachers say that not only does this take the burden of planning countless new lessons away from them, but enables them to spend their time focusing on the children in their classrooms. This approach also allows us to train teachers faster and provides continuity as children progress through the grades at a Bridge school, an approach unmatched in other school systems.
Every single Bridge academy benefits from this structure and approach and consequently so does every single pupil. Essentially, the model we use, offers our pupils the kind of education they would never have access to through any other system.
