"The teachers, administrative staff, cooks, and just everyone that works there feels like family"
My two daughters have attended Bright Star Academy for the last 6 months and it has been the best decision I have ever made in regards to their future. The teachers, administrative staff, cooks, and just everyone that works there feels like family. I moved my girls over from another school where I became concerned that they were not getting what was promised at the beginning when we enrolled, and noticed they were taking steps back in their education. Two weeks in at Bright Star Academy and my 3 year old was caught up on counting, letter recognition, and came home HAPPY at the end of the day. My oldest daughter would come home excited to tell me about the science experiments they did, books they read, games they played outside, and just anxious to tell me about her entire day at BSA! They serve organic food in a family eating style in the cafeteria, which we really like. The children are responsible for clearing their own plates and serving themselves and teachers are invited to join them for lunch. I know "organic" seems so trendy but when you're coming from a school where they only give your children goldfish and what they call "meatloaf", this is a huge bonus. The tuition is average, which shocked me considering everything that you're getting here! We expected it to be much more expensive! They have live animals for the kids to learn about in the art/science room where they are responsible for taking care of the "friends" and feeding them, an indoor play area for rainy days (including a beautiful sand pit and things to jump and climb on), a gorgeous theater room for creative play, library/computer lab, an on site nurse and during the summer a splash pad area for the kids to enjoy outside. I have honestly never seen a teacher with a sour look on their face, they always seem to be having fun and enjoying their job. Every time we enter the school, we are greeted with a smile and the girls are welcomed with open arms (literally, the teacher greets them with a hug!). If you are looking for a quality, professional, friendly school for your little one to attend, please go take a look at Bright Star Academy. I have no doubt you will feel the same way I do by the end of your tour.
