My son and daughter both attended Brighton Academy, my daughter had anxiety issues before attending Brighton Academy. The staff at Brighton where able to provide a calm, loving environment, which helped my daughter to have more confidence and serenity. And her grades improved with her demeanor. My daughter started loving going to school and making more friends. Brighton's nurturing campus, kind teachers and welcoming students all helped my daughter feel acclimated and gave her more confidence. My son enjoyed Brighton Academy from the start and thrived as well.

My kids and I LOVE Brighton! I would never send them somewhere else. I've sent my four kids to this school since, they first started school. There is a no bullying policy on this campus that is taken very seriously, most schools have this policy but it is not enforced, at Brighton it is enforced. This helps kids to thrive and succeed, my four children have all excelled in all of their studies. There is a system in place where students can take college courses on Brighton's campus my 15 year old and 13 year old have already started accumulating college credits (in which they have all A's). They have also been involved in the community through the Interact Club which also will look excellent on a resume when applying for higher education. My kids and I love Brighton!

Bad experience after bad experience with this school... Word to the wise, ask to see teaching credentials and go to class with your student to make sure your child is actually learning something. Several of my sons teachers were, quite honstly, an embarrassment. A few teachers spent more time confusing his class than actually teaching anything... Sadly, most of the staff seem to think they are in some sort of an elite group, so be prepared to witness alot of rolled eyes and snarky remarks, including directing this attitude at the children. There is a MAJOR LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY for bad behavior exhibited by the students and staff. Over the years we have run across many, many situations that raised an eyebrow but I kept trying to give the staff the benefit of the doubt, only to be disappointed over and over again. We would not recommend this school to anyone.

As a mother who sent my son to school for two years at Brighton, I had high hopes good would come from it but that is far from the truth. My son was put in a class with a teacher that had never been to school for teaching and had never even been working in a class. The sad part i was told he was doing great when he was not I pulled him out and come to find out he is 2 grades behind. I'm sad they lie to the parents and put teachers in class from that are not real teachers and never been to school. Please think twice before sending a child you love to school at Brighton.

Love, Love Love this school!! The principal and teachers are very engaged and care deeply about the students. I have 2 children that graduated from Brighton and I am very pleased with the education they have received and the personal attention and support that has been given to them. If you have a child who is unhappy with the school they are attending because of being bullied or having trouble learning because of class size or an uncaring environment I would definitely recommend Brighton Academy. I have never seen another school like it.

We have two students that have attended Brighton Academy for three years, one student is in middle school and the other is in high school. We are extremely happy with the education our kids are receiving. All the teachers and staff members sincerely care about the students, and it shows. We sacrifice a lot to send our kids to Brighton and feel it is worth every dime!

My son is graduating from Brighton this June. He has attended this school since middle school and his growth has been tremendous. He has received a well rounded education and earned over 40 college credits to boot! He has developed a great work ethic and I thank the Brighton teachers for their unwavering support. I would not hesitate to recommend Brighton Academy to anyone!

I am a solid supporter of Brighton. My daughter has been enrolled for the last nine years. The academics are solid and the teachers take extra care so every student learns. There are so many great programs at this school that my daughter enjoys; like theatre, college classes, martial arts, growers market and the interact club. We truly think of Brighton as our extended family and I am grateful for all of the work the staff does. God bless this little campus of ours!

We have a wonderful experience at Brighton. The teacher and parents are like a family. Everyone works together. My children are in 6th and 10th grade. They are very happy and well-rounded students and I definately give credit to Brighton Academy for that.

This is our 3rd year here at Brighton and what a blessing we have found in this school. My three kids have been encouraged, enriched and challenged by each of their teachers. Their teachers have met them at their individual levels and needs.

Brighton Academy is an amazing school. Both my children have attended since pre-k. The hands on application mixed with the excellent academics is unbeatable. The theatre & marshal arts programs are terrific and the college courses offered are wonderful.

Brighton Academy is the most awesome school! As a parent I appreciate so many things that Brighton has to offer our family. Above all, I appreciate the spirit in which the campus is run. It's a safe, caring and ever evolving environment dedicated to the well being of the child's mind, body and soul - each considered and nourished equally. I appreciate..... our spirit lead leader, Faye Dawson, for her tireless efforts to build a place where each child thrives and blooms to their fullest, inborn potential.... all the wonderful teachers for bringing this spirit of life and love to their classrooms, and last but not least, the friendly environment where parents feel welcomed and are encouraged to be involved.
