Mr. Sanchez - Principal

Arthur Sanchez


Dear Bridges Learning Center,
It is an honor to introduce myself as the principal of Bridges Learning Center and to be a part this extraordinary school community.  I can assure you that I share in this school community’s commitment to caring for your student each and every day while providing them an exceptional learning environment.

I arrive to Bridges Learning Center as a seasoned secondary teacher and building principal of over twenty years, but in addition to my role as an educator, I am first and foremost a father and husband. In September of 2021, my daughter Julie became a teacher.  My wife Chris supports the work I do each and every day and I am grateful for her support.  I look forward to introducing myself to the many wonderful people that call Bridges “home” in the near future.

My greatest initiativ is to provide the leadership that will facilitate a school environment to provide differentiated instruction, while upholding the Moreno Valley Unified School District’s 11 commitments, to meet the needs of each student to the best of our ability. The educational program must be academically challenging, engage each student by linking the curriculum to previous knowledge and experience, and also be exciting to promote further exploration of new ideas. Parents, teachers, support staff, and administration all have an important role to encourage our students to become active learners. It is my sincere desire to provide expanded opportunities for our students to acquire the skills to become productive citizens in a vastly changing society.

I view education as a life-long process and continue to learn every year from our students, teachers, and parents at Bridges Learning Center.   Most importantly, I believe that students are at the center of all school-related decisions.  Because the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students, I encourage you to become involved in every way possible.  I look forward to meeting you soon!

Dear Parents, Families, and Community members of Moreno Valley

As  Vice Principal of Bridges Learning Center MVOA/Bayside It is my privilege and honor to serve the students and our  great community of Moreno Valley.  At Bridges Learning Center we instill in our students the code of (PRIDE) Passion, Respect, Integrity, Dedication, and  Excellence. From this strong foundation our students build to go out into the community as college or career ready and productive members of our society. In my nearly two decades with MVUSD I continue to be inspired and am grateful to be part of the success of our students. It takes a village to raise our children, and I continue to welcome all stakeholders in our community village with input to that successful graduate goal.
