BRIDGE-Extended Student Services

BRIDGE: Building Relationships through Innovation, Design, and Global Exploration

The Extended Student Services (ESS) Program extends Poway Unified School District's educational program into the hours before and after school (6:30AM to 6PM), and during school vacations, for elementary school aged children. ESS provides a comprehensive program of developmentally appropriate curriculum and activities. ESS is fee based.

Since Design39Campus is looking at changing the way we do school, ESS is doing the same.  We are changing the way we do ESS and we are becoming an extension of the school day known as the BRIDGE program.  Our BRIDGE program stands for Building Relationships through Innovation, Design, and Global Exploration.
