About Our Principal

Principal Raihan Akther

Ms. Raihan Akther, LLMSW, ED. S.

I have been part of Bridge Academy since 2005 and have been at Bridge West since 2014. Before becoming the Principal, I was the assessment coordinator at BAW. I have loved being part of this community and watching these fantastic minds grow and learn every single year. I cherish all my kids and what they teach me with every interaction. My students and my team are my reason to always try my best and give more every day. I try to live up to my personal motto; “I am only as good as the team I lead”.
