About This School

Bright Beginnings School #1 is located in Chandler, AZ and is in Bright Beginnings School Inc. District. It is a charter school that serves 432 students in grades K-6.

Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Bright Beginnings School #1's test results to learn more about school performance.

Bright Beginnings School #1 Reviews

By a Parent on

This school owes its high test scores to a pattern of telling parents to take their child elsewhere if they have any special needs that might lower the school's test scores. When this doesn't work, they will make the child and parent uncomfortable enough to not return the next year.

By a Parent on

We are hoping that no other child will be treated the way our daughter was treated.  The lack of professionalism and commitment to education sums up the overall reaction that we have received.  This letter is to inform every parent that he/she needs to be aware of the voice that parents have in their child’s education.  Not a teacher or a principal can dictate the child’s educational future.  It is with the teamwork of the parents, teachers, and administrators that will lead to the success of a child’s educational future.  Without a plan of action, there’s no success.  BBS did not care enough to ensure the success of our daughter.  We wonder how many other parents were treated and dismissed by the staff of BBS after the collection of tuition without giving a child a 100% chance to introduce and adapt that child to their “new learning environment?”  Arizona education has focused a lot on test scores.  Sure, BBS does have the majority of students meeting or exceeding standards, but how many of the students were suggested to go to alternative schools due to lack of progress made by students?  For profit?....Or for the education of our children?
