I started as a new student so my experience might not be the same as others. I will say that the education, while extremely rigorous, is so beneficial for college preparation! I have loved all of the teachers so far and really enjoy learning. However the counseling office is kind of terrible and they don't seem to know what they're doing.

Brighton Area Schools is a great school to send your children if you want them to be well prepared for life after school. Brighton has amazing academics and really takes the time to make sure their students are at their fullest potential. For the most part, the staff genuinely cares about their students and wants to see them improve. However, Brighton does have some flaws. Brighton Area Schools is not diverse at all and in my opinion, this hinders a students abilities to learn about other cultures and to see things from another persons point of view. Another issue is that there are times where I feel as though Brighton puts their ego first in front of their students health and safety. Brighton is really a wonderful school district and like I said before, it does perpare their students for life after high school in the best way possible.
Brighton High School is full of very involve students and staff. Everyone is very caring and including. The school is student lead, everything from athletics to student clubs. The administration put the school into the students hands. Students are giving many opportunities to become leaders and to learn many different skills with a large variety of clubs and classes. Overall, an amazing high school experience.
