Brighton School District No. 27J Reviews
The school's educational curriculum has been average in the question of having attentive teachers and an effective curriculum. However, the school's environment is concerning. I have come to know, that many high schools in the area and in the nation, trash and recycling are not raised to its severity. As of course, not taken into serious consideration, trash collection and disposal programs are not being separated amongst recycling and landfill. It has raised me to wonder why recycling bins are "used" within the school if the recycling trucks do not come to the school. Clubs and Sports are given a massive budget to drive out more money than necessary for funding whilst the extra money is then used for new apparel from the most expensive athletic brands. There is absolutely no activism towards environmental concern though there is budget available to pay recycling trucks, and it truly is worrisome.
Going to Brighton High School, has changed my life forever. I don’t love it for only the vigorous work and the constant push from your teachers. I love it for the people I’ve met. I met great friends, teachers, and coaches that have made my life a million times better. My basketball coach, my biology teacher and my chemistry teacher are people who have taught me major life lessons nobody else could teach me. They have taught me how to be a good human being, while always striving to be the best. One thing that Brighton High School does lack is the loving community. In the past years we have had unfortunate deaths to some great students, and had overwhelming love and support from the community. It does feel like we have amazing support through tough times, but it’s even coming out of those tough times we need support. From basketball games to academic assemblies, it would be amazing to know everyone in our small community supports us.
My experience at Brighton High School was both adequate and discouraging. I was provided with an education given by mostly amazing teachers that were simply not given the materials they deserved because of poor funding. I should add that I took upper levels classes and there I found the redeeming part of Brighton but most other classes I took, I found that I taught the material to myself. The administration turned a blind eye to the students voicing their opinions and they also had an aura of Big Brother the way that the monitored and reprimanded students for every single thing they could. By the time I got to be a senior there was little to no community feel or school spirit. I also found I was not given full courses required by most colleges and counselors paid little attention to schedules. Student body was uninformed as conditions in and out of the school changed.
