    I’ve had my kids in BHA for 12 years and we’ve been very happy. The school is continuously finding ways to improve. My kids have developed a strong Muslim identity and the education has been great! We moved here for the school and it’s the best choice that we’ve made. I’m a parent who gets involved and worked on improving what I don’t like And that’s what I found in BHA. A school that’s always looking to improve

    Excellent school. I have 4 kids and they are very happy with the teachers, the staff and the leadership team. I honestly read some reviews and feel that is not fair for anyone to bash the school, you always need to visit with the staff and get your issues resolved. I love the school and the level of education my kids are getting. I highly recommend the school to anyone who wants his kids to get nothing but the best.
    I've been in Brighter Horizons for over ten years now. The staff and students become like family to each other, and the culture of the school is a very positive and inclusive one. New kids are not shunned, but rather accepted into the family, and this environment is really conducive to effective classroom learning and teamwork.
