Why Brighton Central School District?
The Brighton Central School District in upstate New York is located in a family-oriented community offering excellent public services and recreation to residents of all ages. The town includes attractive residential properties, small businesses and professional office buildings with convenient access to the City of Rochester’s cultural, educational and commercial opportunities. Brighton is a cosmopolitan community with people of diverse nationalities, religions and ethnic backgrounds.
The name Brighton Central Schools has become synonymous with quality education, and many of our district’s residents choose to live here because of our outstanding educational system. Students, staff, parents and residents are proud of their schools and maintain an active interest and involvement long after their children have grown. This translates into strong, consistent support for budgets and capital projects.
The school district attracts a highly experienced, stable faculty who find the district a personally and professionally rewarding place to work. Parents play a special role in all schools as volunteers, as members of the PTSA, and as participants in school committees and decision-making.
Brighton’s compact geography makes it ideal for our school organization, which includes four district-wide schools in which all students in each grade attend the same building. All the district’s buildings have been renovated or expanded to more adequately meet the needs of an educational program in the 21st century.
