Brighton Preparatory School

Tel: (727)327-1454
Grades: 1 - 8 | 28 students
Brighton specializes in working with students (grades 1-8) with learning disabilities and also accepts the McKay scholoarship.  Brighton's centralized location allows it to attract students from St. Petersburg and the Gulf Beach communities, Seminole, Pinellas Park and Largo.  Parents appreciate Brighton for the safety and security of Brighton's smallness and individualized nature.
This offers "peace of mind" to the families.
The fundamental style of education in the traditional offerings of Reading and Mathematics and Phonics is another drawing factor.

School Reviews

Brighton is a nuturing, structured wonderful school that helps children get back on track who have fallen behind academically, emotionally and socially. Brighton helped our daughter, who was below grade level, return to grade and beyond. Her confidence grew because of the non judgmental enviroment, letting her work at her own pace and achieve goals we never knew were possible. Brighton also enforced our family beliefs regarding respect, try your best and always be kind to others. Brighton is a family, they were a family to us in time that we felt frustrated and alone with our daughters education. I cannot recommend Brighton enough, Brighton is a hidden treasure in St Petersburg!
