My 10 year-old son has been at Brighton for three years. With the caring support of the enthusiastic teachers, and through the application of learning programs perfectly tailored to his needs, he has been achieving continuous social, academic and behavioural successes that I would not have imagined possible. Brighton has been a blessing! Carola S., Brighton Parent
We have what you’ve been looking for. A warm, vibrant school community that understands elementary and secondary students with learning challenges. Learning Groups with only 3 – 6 students in each group. Caring, qualified, trained and experienced Special Ed teachers who individualize learning to meet each students’ 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 minute breaks (instead of short 15 minute recesses) helps keep our students at a consistent energy and attention level throughout the day. After school clubs 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. Dances. A large, bright gymnasium. A stage. A great playground. A parking lot. A before and after school care program. Great students and parents. Come and visit us to experience Brighton for yourself!
Bright 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. Bright welcomes students with different abilities in our classrooms.
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.
