Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

The teachers are AMAZING! I can't say enough good things about all of the teachers at the school.

Amount of homework: Agree

My children haven't been overwhelmed with their homework. I like that she receives it on Monday and it's due on Friday so we can fit it into our schedule. Nightly reading is strongly encouraged.

My children have been at BBS for 4 years in the preschool and elementary program. They have thrived due to the amazing teachers, the small class sizes, aides in every classroom, and involved parents. The curriculum is advanced academically but developmentally appropriate. They do a great job of differentiating and challenging the students as well as building their confidence and character. The specials (music, art, tech, Spanish, and wellness) are incredible. My children love going to school and love learning.

This school has the most incredibly caring teachers. Additionally, unlike many of our public schools, there are phenomenal programs for Spanish, Art, Choir, PE, and computers. Some prior reviews reflect the concerns that there are new owners to the school. In my experience, the new owners have indicated their commitment to the school. They have improved the preschool playground, and have demonstrated their intent to continual school improvement. I am happy to be a part of this educational community.

Amount of homework: Disagree

for 3 years my son was here ,he brought very little and sub standard homework. Curriculum was very non challenging.Kids are better off in public school than here as school has no academic standards. Teachers are constantly leaving and principal is very business minded.


Handles bullying effectively: Neutral

We didn't come across any issue like this so not sure how school would have handled it

Supports LD students: Disagree


- a
School heavily relies on parent volunteering.For 3 years,we were there ,teachers were constantly changing .This unstable environment doesn't support strong academics.

My children have been at Bright Beginnings School for the past four years and we have had an amazing experience. The Pre-Kindergarten program is excellent, and my children were taught at a Kindergarten level but catered to as preschoolers. They were incredibly ready to advance to Kindergarten. The school's new ownership are committed to ensuring the school's ongoing success, and the new principal is attentive, caring and a welcome presence in our school. The teachers are all excellent. Additionally, there is a strong community of parents, teachers and administration working together to make sure students succeed. I highly recommend BBS!
