My daughter has sadly attended this school for the past two years and she and I will be glad to move one. This school is focused on everything but whats important which is the students and their success. I've always felt a very negative atmosphere. Ms. Cervantes makes comments to students that are un acceptable like "Ill see you next year", "your not going to graduate" quote on quote. This school is only worried about ratings and not the students. . A Very disappointed Parent
Great school counselor (Bernard Larsen). Truly, he is excellent. Unfortunately, he has to serve two middle schools. It would be great if the district could afford another counselor to lighten Bernard's load. This would allow him to provide longer and more personalized help to kids who need counseling.
My son attended New Brighton in 6th and 7th grades. We moved to San Mateo before his 8th grade year. Vito had the best teachers at New Brighton: Ms. Roster and Ms. Bridi for Humanities and Mr. Segura for Art stand out as stellar, inspirational instructors. I have taught secondary school in California for more than 12 years, and I have nothing but good things to say about the staff and administration at New Brighton Middle School.
NBMS continues to go above and beyond in providing a rich learning environment for students at all levels. The teachers have a passion for teaching and this comes across to the students. In hard budget times, it is comforting to know our school administration is doing all they can to keep cuts are far from the students as possible.
Hi I am a sixth grader at New Brighton Middle school, it is outstanding here and i cant wait for more grades. The teachers try to make learning fun and they know when we need a break there is even advanced classes for your child to take! I am in intergrated advanced math 1 and it is great. we are learning things 7th and 8th graders are learning and we are very high strung about learning new things. We always look for more ways to improve, almost every other firday we have a dance to end the week great! Go New Brighton!
