Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Diversity is integral to the Bridges Education Group mission. All members of the Bridges Education Group community are committed to encouraging opportunities for equity, inclusion, and access in our schools and in 2e programs throughout the world. We encourage research, and the development of instruments and practices that identify 2e students and that make 2e education more widely available regardless of race, gender, or socioeconomic status. Twice-exceptionality knows no such boundaries. Neither do we.
We believe that different ideas, perspectives, and backgrounds create richer and more meaningful school learning environments. In addition to the cognitive diversity of our 2e population, lived experiences, identity, and economic circumstances bring a unique and enriching perspective to our 2e school community.
The admissions process, therefore, is designed to identify those students we feel will best benefit from our program and we encourage members of all communities to learn more about twice-exceptionality and to apply. Because of the pros and cons of various methods of evaluation and the complexity of twice-exceptional students’ learning profiles, Bridges does not rely solely on standardized measures, and uses a broad range of tools and procedures to determine program fit.
