At Bright Star Schools my son was able to graduate in the class of 2010 and now my daughter attends in her freshman year at the school. I believe the school is very good for students because my son had entered since the second semester of ninth grade and experienced all the changes the school went through as it developed to advance more and more. Also I realized that the number in the class rooms were smaller then in normal public schools which makes a difference where the teacher can actually pay more attention to the students as a small class and individually. I also like how the school motivates the students to do better and in return having a certain event to recognize their achievements whether it is a field trip, award certificate, or a fun day for the students. I thought that it really helped my son on his college path because the school started a program where the school took students that could prove that they had what it take to begin taking college courses while still in high school. Due to that my son was able to complete one year of his GE courses and is now about to complete his second year right after finish high school.

It all started in 2005,it was the first year my daughter attended Bright Star.We dealt with a lot of struggle but in the end it was all worth it.In 2009 my son attended bright star as well.He also struggled but with the help of the school staff & his fellow peers he passed.Many students fallow the rules & they get along with one another.Parents also are involved in this school because they help & support their child.Participation,Volunteer,Active & Support are some of the things parents fallow.The school all comes together & are all one big family.

Bright Star School is very strick... Students are to wear uniform no exceptions. Students are very quiet and organize at lunch time, students don't have time to waste, they are always busy in class, but best of all,, Students are very respectful to all school staff!!! Something we don't see at regular schools.
