Welcome to our website! We are extremely excited to get the 2020-2021 school year started. I know we have all endured difficult times this past year, but I know as a community we will pull together and get through as a family. At Harry Bridges, we provide your students with a well-rounded educational experience, whether it is online or live on campus. Our teachers and staff are preparing instruction and supplies for your children. We understand the difficulty of online instruction, but we are going into it with the same focus, dedication, and flexibility we would if school was opening as normal. We will have information about picking up devices and supplies on our website in the next few weeks. Please continue to check this website for all information regarding the opening of school. Again, welcome to Harry Bridges and we look forward to an AWESOME year together!!
Anyone can be good,
but Awesome takes practice!!

What Is a Span school?
We've received many questions regarding our name, Harry Bridges Span School. While not a new concept, it is fairly rare within LAUSD. A span school is just a school that spans multiple levels (elementary and middle, middle and high, or elementary through high school). Our school will span kindergarten through 8th grade, though for the 2012-13 school year, we will only go up through 7th grade.
One of the benefits of a span school is that students remain on the same campus through 8th grade. There are fewer difficulties transitioning to middle school. The middle school portion is also significantly smaller than a traditional middle school, which makes it more like a community than some of the larger middle schools. Teachers generally get to know all the students.
Some of the cons are due to the size, there are fewer course options at the middle school level. Students may miss out on some of the extracurricular activities at a larger school. We will strive to meet the needs of all students with a rigorous curriculum, though, and are actively seeking partners and funding for a variety of programs to support our students.

Harry Bridges, our namesake and legendary ILWU organizer, famously said, “Few of us really believed that we could win a decent wage, a little dignity and security on the job.....let alone having a college education for the kids.” We view these words as the cornerstone for the development of Harry Bridges Span School. In our working class and largely Latino community of Wilmington, social justice means providing the educational foundation to make college and career readiness a reality for all students.
