Serving students with learning differences since 1996


NewBridge School’s reputation is built upon smooth, successful transitions into and out of our program. We begin with students who want to learn and succeed in school, and we teach them HOW to learn. We are a strategy-based program, focused on teaching students the most efficient and effective ways to acquire and use information rather than simply covering material. We monitor and assist our families after graduation to ensure that success. Most of our students return to mainstream programs without support services.

Our Middle School Graduates typically transition into highly competitive mainstream high schools, including: High Tech High, Cathedral Catholic, Health/Sciences Charter, All Poway High Schools, Scripps Ranch, and other San Diego High Schools.

Our High School Graduates have continued on to attend universities in and out of state, including: UC Berkeley, UC Irvine, UCSD, Point Loma Nazarene, Loyola University, University of Arizona, Weber State University, and the San Diego Art Institute.

NewBridge Alumni enjoy returning to our school to share their success stories to our current students and encourage them to use the strategies that NewBridge teaches because “they work”. We are very proud of our Alumni – Read below what some of our graduates are up to.

    Welcome Graduates! We invite you to send us an update – let us know where you are and how you’re doing. Check in with your friends, find out where others have gone. Ask your NewBridge friends to post as well.

    Our 15-Year Anniversary in early June. We’ll forward the details to everyone we can, but need your help updating out email roster. If you are still in touch with anyone from NewBridge, please either let us know their contact info or ask them to contact us directly.

    We’re planning dinner, games, a slide-show of “the good-old days,” when you were all young. Please send us your photos of then and now so we can add you to the show.

    Hi, My name is Karina Reizman and NewBridge helped me gain a foundation for my education. The teachers are wonderful and caring, and care about each child. I have fond memories of the play at the end of the year, especially Romeo and Juliet. I also loved the camping trip. I am currently attending Arizona State University working towards my bachelors degree in family and human development. I have only positive remarks to say about NewBridge. If I can do anything to help promote the school, I would love to. It made a difference in my life. Thank you New Bridge!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi everyone!
    Glad to see this alumni site so we can catch up. I’m finishing my freshman year at High Tech High North County. It is project based and great for my kind of learning. Sorry I can’t make it to the reunion because I will be out of town. Hope to get in email touch with students I knew at New Bridge. I still play soccer, both for my high school and a club team. I still have the Frisbee I used to throw around with Mr. C.
