Our approach to Teaching and Learning revolves around helping students find success, happiness, and fulfillment in the current (and future) world.
We strongly believe in developing not only language and cognitive learning, but also social/emotional and executive skills (such as independence, curiosity, decision-making, cooperation, persistence, creativity, and problem-solving — the fundamental skills that help determine success in life).
We know that deciding on the right school for your children can be a very difficult one and we know that as parents, you demand the best for your children.
Look no further, 9th Bridge offers a very unique learning environment for the entrepreneurs and creators inherent in us all. We invite you to join our community of 9th Bridge families who are ready for active exploration, collaboration and innovation.
When I left New York City and the world of Finance in 2011, I was excited, nervous, and fearful. I was moving to downtown Las Vegas with the dream of making an impact on education, but I didn’t exactly have a plan yet. I was excited about the possibilities, but also nervous because I had no experience. And I was fearful of failing and not living up to people’s expectations of me.
In fact, the only thing my plan consisted of was my conclusion that the “real world” was very different from what school had prepared me for. And that my fondest (and most informative) memories of school were ones in which I was engaged in interesting, interactive, and meaningful learning experiences.
A world where our children are the leaders of their own lives.
Our mission is to cultivate independent thinkers and creative problem solvers.

WHAT OUR PARENTS HAVE TO SAY…
I have a 4.5 year old and 2 yr old daughter that attend 9th Bridge. We couldn’t be happier with the curriculum, staff and the facility. My 4 yr old loves the Aftercare Program its teacher Ms. Tomika so much that when I come to pick him up he tells me to go home!
9th Bridge is a nurturing, loving and inspiring environment. My husband and I feel fortunate to to be giving our kids the opportunity to grow there.Emily Wilson
Both of our girls have attended 9th Bridge School since it opened and the experiencehas been transformative for our entire family. The leadership has been brilliant with heart, inspiring our two little ladies to do what they love each step of the way. Thanks to artists in residence visiting in the fall they inspired an awareness in our 5 year old artist that she had the possibility of being an artist as her profession, which led to her very own First Friday art booth.
The comprehensive education that our children are receiving is first class, worthy of all of the sacrifices that parents make when choosing to send their children to a private school. I can not recommend it highly enough and I welcome any potential family to reach out to the existing families to hear our stories first hand.Krista Whitley
