From The Bright School

For more than 100 years, The Bright School has educated generations of families in the Chattanooga area. We stand by our mission to develop "wise and compassionate citizens of the world" by caring for and nurturing all children as individuals. Our small class sizes enable teachers to form strong bonds with their students, and, in these uncertain times, that connection between student and teacher is most important. The Bright School community includes families from various backgrounds, and we welcome all to join our family. Please contact us at any time during the year to inquire about admissions.
