Reviews for Bright Star Schools

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Due to good recognizing of both my children from academics to behavior, I was given the right to be in charge and take responsibility for a group that controls traffic and the student sign outs at the end of the day.

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I like The after school program,'cause the teachers bring out the best of the kids,not only in their classes but also in that program. All the students are either in sports and music. In a word kids are always busy no time for bad ideas or misbehaving.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Honestly I don't think this school needs any changes at all.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Is that everybody is very organize quiet and extremely respectful.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very polite and nice.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help them because the students as of right now don't have a Gym for physical education, also air condition is nessesary and many more things that are greatly needed here...

Ways to make it better...

no comments.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Money because it's a nonprofit organization it's not being supported by LAUSD. Also that many parents may or may not agree on the standards that this school has,when it comes to uniform,and students respecting authority and volunteering.

One thing I'd also say is that...
