This school is only great for average or below average kids. However, don't expect anything much if you have gifted kids. Ms. Amy Powell & Mr. Jeffrey is the only great things BMS have. Parents: don't bother wasting your time to voice your opinion/suggestion to the staff unless you're the next kin and so forth. Do a little research on the employees that work there. Everyone is related to one another. There is no doubt that this school is extremely behind academically nationwide.

BMS likes to brag that they are the tops academically, but I'm not impressed. We came from a top-notch school system in another State. Tipton County isn't even close. My first clue came when I called to inquire about registering my straight-A student in the gifted program. I was told that BMS did not offer a gifted program, only advanced classes, and that my child would not be "eligible" based on her academic record. (Say what?!) BMS required State standardized test scores (which they lazily failed to get), so I finally tracked them down myself. I brought the scores to registration, but the incompetent guidance counselor still enrolled my child in standard classes. I got two impressions of Brighton right off, which proved to be true: 1) the school was not going to be on par academically; and 2) they will do their best to ignore you if you aren't "homegrown folk". (I suspect this is because you are probably smarter than they are.) I finally got my daughter moved to advanced classes, and she had a few pretty good teachers. But she made all A's doing minimal studying or homework all year. We are considering alternatives for next year.

I was very impressed when I first visited Brighton Middle School. The school is as clean and polished as any hospital I have ever been in. I have been to the school several times since my daughter started 6th grade and have always been greeted upon walking in the door, I like this for security reasons. When attending the open house parents were told about dress code as well as discipline procedures, I was given the impression that anything that interferes in the educational process would not be tolerated. I was also impressed with the humor that was used to indicate that they are aware of the fact that 6th to 8th graders have raging hormones. My daughter has also given the school 2 thumbs up, she has stated ALL of her teachers are so nice.

Brighton Middle School is a wonderful school. My child just finished the sixth grade here. He has absolutely flourished. You couldn't ask for a better faculty and environment for your child to learn in. My child loves school and finds it to be challenging and engaging.

I have to say, it's a nightmare! They have a teacher there that can't teach and they won't let her go. She has received a ton of complaints in the past and they won't get rid of her!! I can't wait to be done with this school!!!
