I appreciate administrations care and concerns for the students at BP. I am happy with programs and activities that the school offers students and parents. My son loves his school.

The administrators are always on top of everything that is going on with the students. You can tell that the students really like them. My son especially is very fond of them.

Yes! I have seen students inside of the principal and assistant principal's office. They are being helped with homework or classwork by their own principal and assistant principal.

Mrs Haas and Mr DeSantiago are great administrators who really care about the children's education and the staff's concerns. They also hear out us parents when we have questions and concerns.

This school is better now that it has a new principal. Principal Williams was just bad, and Principal Johnson bad as well. The assistant principals were always good, Ms. Basile, Ms. Smith and Ms. Dragos, but too bad they are all gone because of the horrible principals. I have 2 kids at Brighton Park, and really hope that Ms. Haas gets to stay.

Please send workshop, school event and other notices with more than 1 day notice. The office staff is disorganized.

This school has gone insane! Girls can't wear skinny pants because they distract guys?! That really doesn't matter eyes are for looking and it doesnt matter if they do look at girls,Oh well thats how guys are-DEAL WITH IT!!! Teachers say "Oh well your coming to school not to a fashion contest, but dont they realize by making them wear uniform and not letting girls to wear skinny pants that they are making them dress how they want to when supposively they are going to school not to a fashion show.I think that the school rules are starting to get a little bit off the line.Now you can't even put rubber pants on your pants...Hello? Just because the teachers are getting old and don't now how to dress up at the fashion these days doesn't mean you hav the right to make the people who have sense of fashion becom unfashionable.

Very bad principal. Treats students, teachers and parents like they are unworthy and far below her.

The principal does not care for students, and doesn't have cultural sensibility for the latino community. The teachers however are great, but some of the aides can be inconsiderate and racist towards english learners in the school. Overall this scool is about a 4 stars.

I have 2 children at brighton. The school has great caring teachers but they don't stay long. If a student skips school THE HOME IS NOT CALLED. The one thing I like about the principal is that she knows just about every student at brighton park. Great after school programs.

I went to brighton and that school was not good at all. There isn't a lot of extra curricular activities for females either. Its real crowded too.

I attended Brighton Park from K-8 and, thanks to its excellent teaching staff, I left that school with much knowledge about the world outside the school walls. The academic programs excellently prepare the students for the ISAT ans IOWA Tests. Extracurricular activities are available for all students and are of the highest quality. Parents are very involved in their child's learning and every teacher cares about each student, helping them in every way to make sure they succeed in life. Brighton Park is one of the best schools in the area and provides an excellent academic program for students of all ages.

I went to BPS since I was in kindergarden. I loved it their. The teachers would hold extra projects for extra credit. Also the best programs, personally they wree fun and helped out on so much on the ISAT plus I now go to Chaney Monge in Crest Hill and we barely studied for ISAT's. At least Brighton Park had a lot more educational fieldtrips and they had the best program 'The homework program' in which some of the PTO would stay out and help students with homework even provide them lunch.(not chaney monge)One time they even had the ART program. All in which were free, fun, and most of all provided free lunch. We have crossing guards!

All I remember is when I used to go to Brighton Park School it was the best school I have ever been to and probably will ever go to. To the teachers, the extra activities we could do for instance basketball that was the best part for me. When I moved in 5th grade I knew I was going to miss it especially my favorite teacher Ms. Thompson she was thee best! They teach you what you need to know for the future any one who has a kid that is growing up you should think about taking them to Brighton Park its one of the best schools I think!

I used to go to this school and it was a good school. They did really care about our saftey because let me tell you they protected us in any way that they could of. At times it wasn't fun because some of the rules were non-understadable but now as I grew up I see why they did everything that they did. Well overall I do think that school is a good school. Especaily if you get Ms. Smith, Ms. Neville, or Ms. Czoski. They are wonderful teachers and they really do care about you and they aren't mean unless you get them mad. Overall they are wonderful people, teachers and friends that are there for your every need.
