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. With a rich educational curriculum and a supportive student body, there is no chance of failure at this school. I'm forever grateful for the connections I've made throughout the years.

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.
