Welcome to The Bright School

The Bright School was founded in 1913 by local educator Miss Mary G. Bright, who was head of the school until 1961. With an enrollment of more than 300 students in grades junior pre-kindergarten through fifth, Bright School seeks motivated students, offers a child-centered curriculum and develops in children a lifelong love of learning and a sense of responsibility that provides a critical foundation for their future endeavors.
