Brighton hall is a wonderful environment for both my son and our family. We had experienced disappointment in failure to uphold the value of community proclaimed by our last school environment. We were so thankful to find a true community where we feel valued but most importantly, our son feels heard and seen and his mistrust from previous experience has turned into trust and growth from being nurtured and cared for by his teacher and staff. At Brighton Hall we see that teachers and staff have the determination and commitment to finding the strengths and capacity of each individual they serve. It has meant the world to us as parents who want our families values to carry over in a place he spends so much time in. We cannot thank the principal, teachers and staff enough. A small, intimate environment with a heart that burns bright Everyone is approachable and authentic, and creates an environment sensitive to needs.

Brighton Hall is a small private school in Burbank. It's a great school for students who are in the industry, into sports or transitioning from homeschooling. The students are friendly and are getting a great education from the dedicated teachers. The tuition here is extremely reasonable for a private school. The class size is anywhere from 8 to 1 to 10 to one which is unheard of in any school. check out brighten hall if you're looking for a new and exciting experience.

My son transferred midyear into middle school, and wow. What a huge, positive difference it's made. Everyone there - the staff, students, and parents - has created a supportive and inclusive family. The academics are top-rate, and the field trips, Spring benefits, science fairs, and more are experiences the kids and parents look forward to. I've never seen my son this happy since pre-Covid. Highly recommend it to any parent looking for a tight-knit, supportive community that cares about the kids.

We are incredibly lucky to be in this school. The teachers are amazing, the staff is friendly, the classes are small, and the kids are kind and always ready to help. My son was completely neglected and left behind at the public school, but he was welcomed, accepted, and taken care of academically, socially, and emotionally at Brighton Hall. This is his third year and he thrives. The school has a program for kids with special needs, tutoring and an extra curriculum after-school program, lots of field trips, and holiday parties. Tuition is reasonable and the campus is safe. This is a small family-like place focusing on each kid`s academic excellence and social acceptance. Thank you to Ms. Angie and all the teachers and staff.

I love Brighton Hall! My teachers make learning interesting and fun! The after school clubs are awesome! I also love all the office staff. They're always there if I have questions or need anything. I've never experienced any bullying here, either. I'm friends with the kids in my grade, as well as other grades. I think that's what makes Brighton unique.

We can`t say enough good things about this school! The teachers are engaging and really care about each student and help them be successful. The small class sizes allow students to be active learners. They offer so many interesting clubs for the kids and encourage them to be involved in their community through their student council. It definitely has a family feel, as the faculty personally knows every child and the communication with parents is always open.

What a hidden gem this school is! Most people don't know it, but it's not just a school for "performing kids". It is open to anyone who wants their child to have a solid education, with amazing teachers, and with small class sizes on a campus that feels more like a family, than a school! Also, even though core classes end at 1 pm, they offer an abundance of fun electives or "clubs" such as Film Production, Yoga, Art, Cooking, Coding, Karaoke, Gaming, and Creative Writing, just to name a few! Even though it is a private school, it is not associated with any religious affiliation, although they do share some of its campuses with the Luthern Church. AND...Tuition is A THIRD of the cost of any other private prep school in the area! Our son is thriving here like never before! We feel like we've been let in on the best-kept secret in Burbank!

Brighton Hall had changed my son's life. Ms. Angie and her staff help each student cultivate their unique strengths and talents. In a time when it is harder and harder not to have our children heavily influenced by a public school or state agenda that doesn't support parents, wants to keep them out of school board meetings, and is more interested in masking and vaccinating students, the staff at Brighton Hall teaches freedom of speech while respecting the differences among fellow students, mindfulness and interpersonal skills. Brighton Hall strives to listen to and support both their student and parents while ensuring collaboration and respect among students. Brighton Hall holds tight to the family and community values of many of the schools that so many of us were blessed to experience growing up in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Whether your child wants to be a doctor or an actor or is shy or an extrovert, Brighton Hall truly welcomes everyone and will tailor an education to fit both the parent's and student's needs.

When I first started out here I was not very confident in myself but on my first day of school in 11th grade, the kids in my grade were so welcoming to me! My teachers also helped me with my confidence. I miss all the friends I made here and my awesome teachers! Brighton Hall was my second family!

Brighton Hall has made a world of difference in the way my daughter feels about school. In our short time at Brighton Hall, my daughter has thrived. The once extremely shy little girl is coming out of her shell and academically thriving. The teachers, staff, and director are all compassionate, they ensure each child meets their own individual goals while still meeting national standards. We love this school.

Very pleased with this school. My daughter is able to work and go on auditions and the teachers completely work with us and make sure she stays on track. They really care about the students and because the classes are so small, the students develop relationships with these teachers and feel they really care about them. The are able to get the attention they need to get good grades. Highly recommend this school if you have a student in the industry.

I'll never forget the memories I made here. Brighton Hall is a wonderful school with an impeccable and competent staff.

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.
