My daughter attended Brighton School from 1st grade until 8th grade. At the age of five, she tested into the Challenge Program/Highly Capable program, but we chose not to send her to that program.That decision was based on how much we had loved Brighton when herolder sister attended the school.We knew our daughter would receive a challenging education at Brighton.She thrived both academically and emotionally at Brighton.She just tested into the International Baccalaureate program at a nearby high school.We are forever grateful to Brighton for her success and forever fans of Brighton School!

Great teachers, relaxed atmosphere AND kids learn (without stress) especially through experiential...lots of field trips, good amount of art, it has been so worth the cost! I Love how the Spanish class teaches the history of Mexico to learn the language.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
