I find the small setting a benefit for the students. They don't seem to get lost in the crowd. They are also expected to learn... not just recite. Children become deeper and better thinkers because they are challenged. Yes, the work is hard, but the students leave BICS knowing how to deal with the world. The school is constantly adding new ideas. The latest PAT goal is to enroll the school in UIL to compete with other schools. The teachers will work with you and do anything to help your child. This is definately the best step for many students.

I am a student at Bright Ideas and I really have not been happy with anything this year. There is nothing to get involved in, and I feel like I have learned almost nothing. I haven't felt very motivated to the best I can. In PE and Art, most people never get more than a 95, even if they deserve a 100. Parents: for your kids sake, I do not recommend this school for students below 9th grade.

The academic programs at Bright Ideas School are lacking teacher guidance and interesting material. There are no sports programs or a fine arts curriculum. The only music classes offered are a violin class, a chorus, and dance, but they are all voluntary and extracurricular. They do not teach music. Parental involvement is reasonable. Many parents come in to be teacher aides and watch their child's presentations. My child has felt like they have not learned much this year, except in Math and Science. Both these teachers are enthusiastic about their subject and do not teach any other subject. Overall, this school is good for high school students because of the concurrent enrollment at MSU, but not so good for gifted students in lower grades.

I am a former student of Bright Ideas. I did experience a lot of things that no child would ever see in public school (I was there before it went public). There were also a lot of things that I didn't like also tho. As with any school, it had it's pros and cons. I suppose looking at how much further the school has come now, the pros have definitely outweighed the cons. If I still lived in the WF area, I would seriously consider it for my children. I need something like Bright Ideas in the Washington D.C. area for my kids to go to.

The teachers are great in the 4, 5,& 6th grades. I have not met all the others. They are all ways ready to answer any of my questions, and they are always ready to talk with any of the children when they have a question or problem. I have gone and sat in on the classes. I really enjoy seeing that all of the children get along together. The teacher makes sure that no one is left out. They do not put any of the kids down they always make the kids put their best foot forward. There is nothing there that would get in the way of learning. And one other thing all of the kids get to have PE every day and some times more then once a day.

My child did have a great teacher. She was the only great thing about the school. Everything we were told by the owner, principal was far from the truth. The package given to new parents, and web site information is inacurate. It was sad to have a 10 yr. old ask why we were lied to. A science teacher lectured from a book, from behind a computer, like it was a college course. My child was bored and sleeping in that class. I was very disappointed with the principals own behavior. She will do anything, to avoid a meeting with a parent, or to give straight answers reguarding numerous situations at the school. I had concerns in watching how some of the youngest students in the school were treated and yelled at by their teacher. Proceed with caution. Ask questions!

I believe Bright Ideas is the most unorganized 'joke' of a school. Being new too the area I thought it would be good for my children to go too a smaller school. I was wrong, and now deal with the worse choice of my life. The 8th grade teach reminds me of a burnt out hippie from the '60's who has no drive too teach. I don't feel my children have learned anything since they have been at that school except how to be tattletalers and how to decieve others. The so called principal and her beliefs and reasoning is just wrong. They don't believe in the healthy growth of your children, just how many kids they can get in the school to get the state funding that the kids never see. Don't let the little pamplets they hand out prior to enrollment fool you. I have not seen one single thing out of the information happen at this school. The lesson learned is too stick with schools that are well known and do lots of research on smaller schools before putting your children through the hell mine had too go through.

The ability for the child to work at his level is amazing. My child has learned at a place that he is comfortable with, and he is above his grade level. The parents are welcomed, truly welcomed. My biggest complaint is that this school and their leaders are VERY liberal. The belief system is pressed into their minds more than I would prefer. It's been a challange to keep our Christian faith pressed into his mind when he is bombarded by the liberal approaches and teachings at Bright Ideas. Because of the school size, the extracurricular activities are limited. As for the time being, the positives are outweighing the negitives. If the radical beliefs continue, we may reconcider.

Bright Ideas has the best teachers in Wichita Falls! They love teaching and are always there for the kids! This school is a very safe place for kids to be and I feel very comfortable with my son attending Bright Ideas! I am very happy that I was told about Bright Ideas and that my son can learn better there then he did at the public schools!

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) was used to test students in English language arts and mathematics in grade 11. The grade 11 exit Level TAKS is a high school graduation requirement. TAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
