Military Connection

Great Bridge Intermediate is proud to serve the many military families who work and live in our community. We are committed to providing support, resources, and enriching programs to enhance our students’ educational experiences and support their families.

This webpage is designed to provide information to military families that are relocating to Chesapeake and have questions about the Great Bridge Intermediate zone. Please visit our district military resources page dedicated to information for our military families to find important information relevant to all of the forty-seven schools in Chesapeake Public Schools.

Our  school counselors Ashley Cooper and Meghan Greene are prepared and ready to assist military families wishing to enroll their student at Great Bridge Intermediate. In addition to our in-school Counselors, Chesapeake Public Schools has a School Liaison Officer who is available to assist incoming military families.

Resources For Our Military Families

Great Bridge Intermediate values and appreciates our Military Families. We know the sacrifices your family makes and we want to do anything we can to help support your family. We thank you for your services to our country.
GBI supports our military students in several ways:
  • We have student ambassadors in each classroom who welcome new/military students
  • Our school counselors offer military small groups. This allows military students to get to know one another
  • We celebrate the month of April as The Month of the Military Child. During that time we dedicate special activities to our military children
