Brighton High School is like every other bps, although I actually enjoy going to school I can say for the most part it's not for the good reasons like actually learning. The schools staff and administration is one of the best I've experienced they actually care about EVERY student, and try to push them to become better academically and socially as a person. But by having a good staff and administration doesn't make up for the students failing classes, slacking off. The teaching itself- not the teachers needs to improve definitely, I wouldn't recommend this school to someone who is looking to push themselves and want to go to a top tier college.

Brighton High school is a diverse school where everyone wants to be attending and the Teachers are welcoming and they know what they doing. In addition, I’ll never regret because I go to Brighton High. However, things I would like change in Brighton High it’s only the bathroom because sometimes students wants to use those bathroom sadly all were closed.
My experience at high school was different. I went through 4 principals in my 4 years, also the school became level 4 so we also was on turn around. I was on the cheer team and i loved it. The sports team really get together and make everybody feel like a family
