A Las Vegas School Ahead of It’s Time
When you first walk through the doors at 9th Bridge School, you know you’ve entered a special place. There’s a sign on the wall that reads:
Use Soft Voices
Stay with Your Adult
Wait for Adult to Open Gate
It could have easily read: “No running. Don’t yell. No opening the gate.” But 9th Bridge School refrains from using negatives and keeps all language positive.
Founded by Connie Yeh, 9th Bridge School opened it’s doors in 2013. Inspired by the passionate local people she met, Connie decided to follow her own passion and collaborate with the community to create a school as unique as Las Vegas itself. The community involvement allows for learning to extend beyond the four walls of the classroom. Once a church, this building has been renovated to house the teaching of the future movers and shakers of the world.
9th Bridge School, Where Learning Becomes a True Discovery Process
With a mission statement that reads, “Our mission is to cultivate independent thinkers and creative problem solvers” you know you aren’t in your everyday cookie-cutter school.
Rooms are equipped with sliding walls so classes can interact with each other. Outside walls roll up like garage doors to extend learning outside. Students’ interests guide the teaching to ensure learning becomes a true discovery process. The incredible playground provides plenty of shade from the Vegas sun and the space boasts artwork done by students themselves.
There’s a garden, a massive sandbox, a community lounge, an outdoor stage, and a cozy library. The intent is to keep students involved in their own lessons, which teaches them to grow as individuals. It’s truly a hands-on school. A private school (scholarships available),
9th Bridge school stands out in more ways than one and proves to be a smart investment in your child’s future.
