Teacher Appreciation Week 2019
Brightmont Academy celebrated all the contributions of our teachers by giving thank you gifts throughout the week. We love our teachers!
Brightmont is, by far, the best school that I have worked in. I love the positive, productive, and fun work environment and the staff is incredibly warm and welcoming. I immediately felt at home here. One-on-one instruction allows teachers to build strong relationships with students which, in turn, translates into highly effective learning. Brightmont is the best!

Parent and Student Testimonials
My daughter was not thriving in a traditional school and arrived at Brightmont significantly behind grade level and with no confidence in her ability to succeed. The Brightmont teachers were excellent and incredibly supportive. With their help, she graduated from high school at Brightmont feeling proud of all she accomplished.
Jane M., parent
Our son attended Brightmont Academy in Plymouth in 8th grade (the only reason we left is due to our move to a different state). He had struggled in a traditional school setting, the large classes did not suit his learning style. We researched many possible schools, only Brightmont offered everything we were looking for. Jess and her team of educators have created a welcoming environment where each individual student is encouraged fully. Our son's time at Brightmont has forever changed his view of learning and school in general, he is now a motivated student who has confidence in his abilities. One of the greatest bonuses of sending our son to Brightmont was the one to one teacher/student ratio. This enabled the teachers to really get to know him in a way that is not possible in a traditional school setting. We fully recommend Brightmont Academy to any family who is looking for a quality education in a caring setting for their son or daughter.

To all the staff at Brightmont,
Thank you for making this one of the best school years that I have ever had.
Seb, student, grade 8
One of the best moments I've had parenting is when my daughter out of the blue, teary-eyed, thanked me for helping her graduate. She said she knew she couldn't have done it without Brightmont...Brightmont was the start of new beginnings for both of us. Thank you for giving her confidence!
