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.
My experience at Brighton High School was great because there were teachers who would actually engage with us and teach the content in so many creative ways because they knew that just giving worksheets wouldn’t help students for application in the future. It was about using diverse techniques to get the information across because they’re so many different types of learners out there. It was overall very impressive that administration could recognize that. Overall, it would be very beneficial if Brighton High School was more diverse in every way especially with views. Many people are close minded and aren’t open to new ideas and evolving and incorporating that within a school system can be very beneficial to students in the future because regardless of what field you pursue, there will be so many different walk of life.
