Brightwood School is committed to providing a positive, multicultural environment where students are taught through a variety of strategies based on current research that enables all students to access the curriculum. Students are encouraged to develop to their highest potential, to become lifelong learners, and to become responsible, contributing members of our democratic society.

We take pride in our school, its excellent instructional program, and the special student activities offered to children. We strive to help children recognize their full potential while developing a positive self-concept and general good feeling about being at school.


The Brightwood School community (staff, parents, and students) work as a team to create excellence in our educational program, citizenship, and general life skills. Student leadership, independence, and responsibility are fostered. We believe that all our students are capable of achieving excellence. We are a WINNING team.
