Principal's Message
Dear Brighton Park Families,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I am thrilled to serve as the Principal of Acero Brighton Park. As a founding administrator, I know that we have much to be proud of as a school, including:
  • Steady progress in reading and math each year since 2013
  • Strong staff retention over our four years
  • Increasing recognition of our students and staff
We have talented teachers, stable leadership, a strong academic program, and committed families. My goal as Principal of Brighton Park will be to build on these and other successes. I look forward to working with all members of our school community to continue to provide an excellent education to our students.
Luke Corry
