Brightwood has a long history of being an above average school. I went there and now my daughter will go there. The administration so far has been pleasant, easy to work with and very professional. The school grounds and inside the school are clean and not at all what I honestly expected from DC public schools. I was beyond impressed. I did an internet search of the teachers and administrators. I am excited for the journey ahead of my child. I believe she will do well with the current administration.
