Brighton Central School District Reviews

9 reviews
All Categories
We've moved a lot, and Brighton is our fifth school system. Compared to the public and private schools we have known, Brighton offers a superior education within an accepting, curious community. Students are typically high-achieving and can be vulnerable to stress. Brighton is more diverse than any other Rochester suburb with international families, economic and religious diversity, and many people with disabilities. Brighton would benefit from being more racially diverse. The superintendent is amazing, and the administration and teachers are outstanding.

I absolutely love the community and passion found within the Brighton School District. It seems as if the opportunities I am presented are endless. As a rising senior, I feel extremely prepared and supported in my search for the perfect school and in the arduous application process. In addition, the spirit found in each and every one of the Brighton students is contagious. We look out for each other and support each other in times of need. Every day is truly a good day to be a Baron.
Brighton is a community of well educated and dedicated leaders in the field of education. As a student, personally i did not have the best experience with the school due to me slipping though the cracks. Although many friends have achieved many great things due to the dedication present around them. I believe that the education system in Brighton and America needs to change in order for the young minds of the world to be able to solve the problems of tomorrow. Allowing for a later start time would be one change, where as another could be getting rid of a new development called flex. . School lunches is another, recently i have seen a lot of the once healthy snacks leave the shelves to be replaced by cheap unhealthy ones. One example is the oatmeal i used to eat everyday is now replaced with sugary cereals. This would be an easy change to be made by the school. All in all i believe that Brighton is a great place for learning and becoming a leader.
