Brighton Area Schools Reviews

Brighton high school has offered me numerous opportunities to grow in academics. There are a variety of different courses that students can take and you are not forced to take a certain path. Most of my interactions with the teachers have been well however there are a few teachers in my experience who don't care what you think. With non- school issues, the school preformed poorly. For example, I sought out help for an addiction I was struggling with. I received no help from anyone and had to find it in my own. Overall, this school preform well academically but the culture of the staff and students aren't superior.
Review Brighton Area Schools
The teachers we had were well educated and cared about the students. The curriculum was very up to date and I felt like I learned upon and beyond what many other people learned in certain classes. My experience in the Brighton Area Schools helped to prepare for college and allowed me to be ready for the real world. They also had a wide variety of classes we could take so we were not limited to only the core, basic classes. Although we did not have the most diverse community we had many clubs and extracurricular activities that helped to diversify our city. I always felt safe when I went to school and never had to worry about a dangerous environment. Our principles were very involved and made an effort to personally know every student to make them feel important.
Brighton Area Schools provides an excellent learning experience for their members of the community. Each educational professional devotes their time to ensure their students are obtaining a fun and safe learning experience. The community often comes together to support local teams,charities and organizations to raise awareness and provide support. The town as a whole is a well-kept environment with a ton to offer.
