Welcome to Brighton
We have what you've been looking for. A warm, vibrant school community that understands kids with learning challenges. Learning Groups that have only 3 - 6 students in each group. Caring, qualified, trained and experienced Special Ed teachers who individualize learning to meet each student’s needs. An evidence based, best-practices curriculum that gets results. A focus on remediation, but also on 'strengthening strengths' so our students understand that while they have challenges, they also have gifts and abilities that make them shine.
Our 'Balanced Day' schedule with two well-spaced 45 minutes breaks (instead of short 15 minute recesses) helps keep our students at a consistent energy and attention level throughout the day. Co-curricular clubs each day that allow students to experience a wide variety of different sports and arts activities, and are designed to build skills, friendships, teamwork and self-confidence. A social skills program. In-house tutoring, Speech and OT services. After school clubs. Dances. A large, bright gymnasium. A stage. A great playground. A parking lot. An After Care program. Great students and parents. Come and visit us to experience Brighton for yourself!
Who is Brighton For?
Brighton is for students in both elementary and high school who learn best in small groups; have an uneven academic profile; have an LD (Learning Disability) diagnosis; or have difficulty with attention, anxiety, motivation, memory, language, reasoning, spatial or sequential ordering or graphomotor functions.
Start Where the Kids Are!
Sounds simple, but most schools expect students to modify themselves for the curriculum. Children with academic challenges need help in closing the gap between where they are and where they need to be. At Brighton, both content and instructional approaches are tailored to address personal learning gaps.
Summer Tutoring at Brighton
Brighton summer tutoring is back! This is designed for both Brighton and non-Brighton students who wish to maintain skills at their current levels during the summer break; need extra help in a specific area of the curriculum; or require a "refresher" before coming back to school. You can find the registration form here.
