21st Century Learning

Today’s students must be prepared to thrive in a constantly evolving technological landscape. The International Society for Technology in Education's Standards for Students, adopted by the Brighton Central Schools, are designed to empower student voice and ensure that learning is a student-driven process.  In working to achieve such standards, we are preparing our graduates to be financially and economically literate, critical thinkers and collaborators, excellent communicators, civically engaged, aware of global issues, and dreamers.
