Brighton High School Reviews

As an alumnus and freshman at an elite college, I can sincerely say that none of my peers in college received a better education than I did at Brighton. Students and teachers work very hard to go much farther than simply preparing for tests--genuine students learning and thinking is what is important. There are a huge number of extracurricular activities that are very popular (model UN, math team, a cappella). Brighton has an especially strong performing arts programs, with three large plays a year and superb music education. While at times being a student at Brighton can be stressful and competitive, students are always encouraging to each other. If you have the chance to go to Brighton, seize that opportunity!

Brighton is AMAZING! I recieved so many opportunities from sports, academics, music, and extracurricular activities. The teachers and administration are always there to help guide you and give you advice on whatever it is you need! 12/10 recommend this school!
Besides BHS being one of the top schools in the state because of its academics, its overall morale and culture sets it above the rest. The school emphasizes the importance of diversity regarding, race, religion, sexuality etc. The accepting environment is what makes me as an African American student, feel as though I am supported. Additionally, the open-mindedness of the faculty and the student body creates a positive and uplifting atmosphere which invokes creativity.
