Brighton Academy 5

My kids love going to school. Whenever we have a long break, after a week they are asking when school starts again. The teachers work with the students at the level they are rather than just catering to the midline. There is definitely a family atmosphere on campus with everyone knowing who everyone is. My kids can't get away with anything because all the teachers know they can come to me with any problems they are having with my boys. I love the feedback. Almost all the children are so polite and caring of each other. Sure, there is some teasing, but it is generally of the goofy camaraderie kind. I really admire Mrs Brown, their current second and third teacher. She has several special needs kids in her class and has created a safe place for them while not neglecting the others in the class. My son has excelled in her class. He blows me away when he reads aloud to me. And the fact that she can get him to sit quietly (mostly) in class is almost a miracle! I'm glad I have a safe relaxed place where I can send my kids to school.

Whenever a child hurts themself (ie tripping on the playground or such) many other children come around to cheer the hurt one up, get things for him or her, make get well cards, ask how the hurt or sick one is doing. It's nice to see and know that they care.

Many of the students are also in the judo or kung fu club which focuses on these points.

Time and again I watch the students admit to their mistakes and clean up after themselves. Many help each other with out being asked. When they are asked to do something, they respond quickly and cheerfully.

As a low income single mom, I did not want my children in public school and I had to work. Brighton has saved my life when it comes to my children's education. We work together to make sure my children are safe and well educated.

Yes I do! The school helps children develop their weaknesses into strengths and encourages/fosters children's natural born capabilities!

Brighton is a stellar school when it comes to developing empathy, caring and compassion in students. Children are taught to be thoughtful and respectful yet to also encouraged to speak their individual truths. The staff takes great concern and care toward all the students' well being.
