My son came to Brighton Hall with zero self confidence towards his academic abilities. The teachers and staff recognized that he needed to feel safe and welcomed in order for him to relax and engage in his learning. It's like a family. The older kids are kind to the younger and set good examples. I've been impressed at how smoothly everything runs. So much so that it's almost transparent. The office staff always greets with a smile and sincerely seem to enjoy their time there. That carries over into the "relaxed and happy" vibe of the school overall. They accepted my son with "not so good transcripts" from his previous school and in a few short months he is engaged and happy to go to school, and he's getting back on course academically. They have done what others said couldn't. Grateful we made the decision to give Brighton Hall a chance and looking forward to a brighter future because of it.
