Brighton Central School District Reviews

I have loved being a part of the Brighton Central School District's community. It is an amazing school like no other. The teachers and administration really care about the success of their students. Us students are held to very high standards both academically and personally. which allows us to mature and develop good decision-making skills. Everyone can appreciate how diverse Brighton is because it exposes us students to differences and seeing past them. this ensures a more safe, accepting, loving environment for students to learn and thrive on.

Brighton is the perfect place to go to school! I am wrapping up my senior year, and Brighton has given me everything I could ask for. Every teacher is dedicated to helping students find success.
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.
