We have a reputation for being one of the better schools in our area. We are right behind Pitsford Sutherland in academics and sports. The kids here are all very focused on their academics, the biggest problem we have is the competitive atmosphere. It causes many students stress. We claim we are diverse however most of our "diverse students" come from the urban-suburban program and come from the city. The ratio is about 80% caucasian and 20% non caucasian. We are also known for having a large jewish population which means we have many jewish holidays and breaks off, which is also why we never have snow days because we are constantly trying to make the cut for the amount of days we can miss. We are well known for our lacross and football team, any other sport is not taken too seriously.
I have grown immensely as a person and as a student during my time at Brighton. There are many teachers that have taught me life lessons, as well as challenged me appropriately and taught me how to learn. Though there were some teachers who were very unprofessional at times, they have taught me how to work with others who may be in authority positions over me, and I may disagree with. The student body is also very talented in a variety of areas, and I have been exposed to many new cultures, backgrounds, and ideas, and I believe Brighton is an environment that encourages the growth of these new ideas.
