At Brighton Academy, our Middle School is grades 6, 7 and 8. Our Middle School is a preparatory program for High School, our early bird college program and our community service program.
In Middle School we introduce a group reading program split by gender. This allows both the girls and boys to openly discuss the multitude of books they read while strengthening their reading comprehension skills and vocabulary. We strongly emphasize writing in our middle school and require both skills and process writing practice. We offer math classes to our middle school students by level, benefiting all students. Our remedial students are offered needed foundational strengthening, our at-level students move at a comfortable pace and our accelerated students are not held back.
In Middle School we offer an integrated science program that comes alive with hands on activities and experiments. Our annual IOWA testing regularly places Brighton students in the top percentile of the country.
Our elective programs include Video Production, Computers, Ceramics, Theatre, Cooking, Spanish, Dance and Music. We stress community involvement with our Interact Club, which is sponsored by the Rotary Club. This is a true application for leadership on both a local and an international level. Our community involvement allows our students to experience real life opportunities; whether on a community theatre’s stage, performing community service with a charity such as Habitat for Humanity or running an entrepreneurial venture.
