Brighton Park, which opened in 2013, serves nearly 580 students from kindergarten to eighth grade. It earned a Level 1 SQRP rating in 2018. Brighton Park prides itself on a rigorous curriculum, an individualized approach to learning and strong parent partnerships. In addition to five athletic teams, students can participate in art club, culture club and dance club. Recognizing that literacy development is a key component of academic progress, Brighton Park hosts a Family Literacy Night each quarter to promote parents’ engagement in their child’s literacy development and connect parents to the school community.

At Acero Schools, our mission is transforming minds through academic empowerment and success. We provide a strong academic foundation for students at the elementary level to help them master the fundamental skills necessary for success in high school and beyond.
