My 5th grader looks forward to going to school each day, and has for three years! This says a lot for Brigham Academy! GO Bears GO!

2013 April. Overall it is a great school. The teachers try really hard against massive financial budget cuts to provide a fun and great place to learn.

Brigham Academy gave our daughter a great foundation for her education. A great principal and staff. If you are lucky enough to get into Brigham, you have enrolled your child in the best elementary school possible anywhere!

I can't imagine my daughters attending any other school than Brigham. The best elementary school in the county. Enthusiastic teachers and principal. Definitely one to pick if you have the opportunity.

My son will be starting 3rd grade this year. We have loved every minute of the last 3 years. The teachers have been fantastic and the principal is a class act. He seems to know each child in the school. Great 'gifted' classes for 'advanced' students. Great school/family involvement. Spanish, music and ...  Read more
