Welcome to The Bright School

The Bright School was founded in 1913 by local educator Miss Mary G. Bright, who was head of the school until 1961. With an enrollment of more than 300 students in grades junior pre-kindergarten through fifth, Bright School seeks motivated students, offers a child-centered curriculum and develops in children a lifelong love of learning and a sense of responsibility that provides a critical foundation for their future endeavors.

On Day 2 of the "12 (school) days before Christmas break countdown," the second grade brings us stories of great cheer and how Rudolph's nose turned different colors. For instance, there was too much paint in the elves workshop that turned his nose black, and a tennis ball that smacked him in the face turned his nose yellow. Blue, pink, green, white, purple -- noses of all colors!
