    "I for one love learning and so by default I adore school. Brighton offers AP and honor classes help those that aren't cookie cutter, to go further. Most of the teachers I have had are wonderful teachers. I love the CNA training program Brighton offers so that I can get a jump star on my future. I have enjoyed the surge of school spirit during homecoming week and participating in powder puff. Its nice to know that the other team will double up lineman on me because I keep getting to their quarterback. Those that are in a sport just as I with track will flaunt their team pride. Brighton High School is an decent school to be sure, but they don't strive to go above and beyond for students. The administration is more focused on athletics than academics. I for one was doing 10th grade literacy in 8th grade. When I transferred from district Adams 50 to 27j they would not allow me to move ahead of my graduating class. I was also advanced in math. To prove a point I took the end of the year final my second week of school and passed and yet they would not allow me to advance. I also tend to move faster then students in my class but the teacher doesn't allow me to move ahead. Brighton has its good and bad but I would do it all again. Bulldog pride gets in your blood and makes you hate Prairie View naturally. There are things I wish they would change, yes, but overall Brighton's not so bad. I feel safe. I'm comfortable and I'm thriving and that's all one could want from a high school."

    "This is a great school. Its a school where I have met so many friends, during cross country, track and soccer season. There is so many intelligent, creative and talented students. If I could do it all over again, I definitely would. I've grown to like many of the teachers and have created so many great relationships here at Brighton High School."

    "The teachers are doing the best they can with the minimal resources available. We don't have the funding to fill the classrooms with enough desks let alone mobile devices. We use our phones and there isn't enough wifi for all the students and there's not enough text books either."

    "The teachers at this school are very knowledgeable and of course know what they are doing but some of the teachers, at the same time trying to help us. Go way out of what they are suppose to do. To further explain there is times where instead of helping it just confuses the students and with the new schedule although there is now more leniency there is no time with teachers anymore."

    "Brighton High School was a great experience for me. The athletics that I am involved in are ran by good people who know what they are talking about. Its a great environment. I made new friends and become closer with others."
