The staff of educators, aides, custodians, volunteers, parents, and administration has increased the potential for success for my children exponentially. Each and every person has proven time and again they will go above and beyond their calling to ensure the most positive and productive outcome for each one of its K-8 children. The resources each seeks out to differentiate instruction and make available the use of the arts to coincide with academics for lifelong retention is without compare. Our community of support is, without fail, one that each of us can depend upon to use time wisely, seek ways to increase participation in all sports, academic opportunities, field trip enhancements to the students' subject matter, and after school plays and dances to keep our country children entertained and engaged. The clubs we offer our children are Battle of the Books, Chess Club, Forensics, Girl Scouts, Cub/Boy Scouts, and Drama Troup, among many others. It is my belief that a rural school district that offers smaller class sizes can provide the instruction necessary to assist all children regardless of learning style. Brighton is certainly an asset our children's future depends upon.

The staff of Brighton Elementary School is caring, concerned and professional. From the Principal, Mrs Wright, to all teachers, aides, support staff, everyone cares if your child (my grandchild) gets a positive, complete education. Struggling students find help and acceptance without judgement. This type of care is a blessing to the child, his family and our community. My sincere thanks to all at Brighton. Michelle Cox

Brighton rocks! I am a student and I have been here since first grade. Although it is small, that's a good thing! You know everyone, everyone knows you, and you don't have to worry about who's going to be in who's class, because there's one class per grade in k-5. There is still one class per grade in middle school, but we switch classrooms, just like any other school. Teachers know everyone too, so better discipline/rewards can be made. Teaching is excellent. They emphasize helping the impaired and underprivelidged. However, their enrichment for kids doing excellent is not very good for grades 5-8. (My parents have one main complaint: My enrichment, along with everyone else's, has been more neglected by teachers the older I get. However, it is still sufficient, and I LOVE being a Brighton student.) Overall, I give this 5/5. If you're in District #1, Wisconsin, go here!
