28 Parent Reviews for Brighton High School

The demand for higher standards has led to curriculum reform that requires more from the students, the teachers, and the parents. Students cannot simply "skate through" their classes anymore and expect to receive high grades. BHS--a school that has always prided itself on exactly how well the students ...  Read more

Could stand a good cleaning. I'm so disappointed in the teachers as well as the counselors, very difficult to get responses to phone calls and e-mails. I find it very strange that my A-B student is all of a sudden a C-D student and what makes it worse is that NOONE seems to be alarmed by this sudden ...  Read more

BHS is a far better school now than it was in 2008. New administrators and a new Director of Operations have cleaned up across the board. They are well respected.

I think BHS is an awesome school. I have had my children in the Brighton schools since kindergarten. The teachers are very supportive of all students. One of my children is LD and had a rough start in Middle School but a great experience in BHS. They even checked on him after he graduated. After talking ...  Read more

I think BHS is a terrific school. I have had my kids in 3 school districts and this is by far the best.

this school is horrible, theyre new teaching style is giving a student a test and based on what questions he/she missed you get certain worksheets to do while the 'teacher' sits and sends personal e-mails)

I am not quite sure that those writing these reviews are who they say they are. As a parent I can tell how dissapointed I am in the High School. When our family moved to this area our decision was influnced by the great reputation of BHS. Well, good reputation is completley false. Our experience ...  Read more
