Student Support Services
Bridges Preparatory School values and celebrates all learners in our community for their unique contributions, backgrounds, and learning abilities. Our culture of inclusion is founded on a personalized approach to meeting our students' individual needs so that every student is challenged and supported and has access to the education they deserve.
Bridges Preparatory School ensures that a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) is made available to all children with disabilities between the ages of 5 and 21, is inclusive, and is in accordance with IDEA and the SC Department of Education Regulation 42-243 and 42-243.1.

Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a seamless prevention framework that refers to the instructional strategies, interventions and other resources that are used to help all students achieve. It is a term used to describe an evidence-based model that uses data-based problem solving to integrate standards-based instruction, interventions and assessments to address the full range of student academic and behavioral needs. Within an MTSS framework, Bridges Preparatory School uses data to identify students at risk for poor learning outcomes, monitors student progress, provides evidence-based interventions, and adjusts the intensity and nature of the interventions depending on a student’s responsiveness.
The goal of our Gifted & Talented program is to challenge students and accelerate their academic performance. Students are identified through a multi-step process which consists of screening and referral, assessment of eligibility, and placement.
