I have been attending Brighton Area Schools for eleven years and have loved every second of it! I like how Brighton Area Schools has a very positive environment and has a club/sport/class for everyone. I also like how involved with our community the school district is. However, one thing I would like to see change in our school district is more diversity.

I have been in the school district all my life. I went to Hilton Elementary, Maltby Intermediate, Scranton Middle, and then Brighton High School. Once I got to the High School, I got to know almost every single person in my grade and some in other grades too. Everyone is friendly to everyone, especially the special needs kids. The pep assemblies are always the best and the football games were a true experience. Our athletics program led our team to the state finals this year, and even though we may have lost, I still got to experience that as a senior in high school. Speaking of seniors, we held our own this year; we met for the sunrise a few times and assuming we will get to go back to school, we will host senior survivor where we raise thousands of dollars in charity each year. From being a kid and playing on the playground at Hilton to being a varsity soccer player and everything in between, Brighton has made my experience of school truly amazing.
I have had a phenomenal experience with Brighton Area Schools. Including Pre-K and kindergarten, I have spent a total of fourteen years attending school in Brighton. I attend school each day knowing that my teachers genuinely care about my education and wellbeing. Administration, especially at the high school, does an excellent job of working alongside the students to improve involvement. I would love to see the schools focus more attention on diversity.
