At Bright Star Schools, we welcome students of all abilities, families, and community members. 

Bright Star students, regardless of background or any learning needs they may have, experience rigorous academics, inclusive education,* social-emotional support, and rich life opportunities beyond the classroom.

Inclusive Support at Bright Star Schools

Bright Star's Inclusive Education Department ensures that students cultivate strategic ways to improve their academic, social, language, and environmental challenges through self-advocacy, community awareness, and involvement to propel them to higher education and career opportunities of their choosing.

As a Bright Star parent said, "The teachers, the staff, and my family, we all work together as a team for my daughter's success. I wouldn’t be able to do it without their support."
