About Us

Brightside Academy is an independent school that offers a unique bilingual education for children from preschool (2 year olds) up to secondary level. 



Our Mission


Our commitment is to the intellectual, physical and emotional development of every child through organized educational activities.

Respecting their innate curiosity and desire for independence, we create a harmonious environment that promotes work, self-discipline and a lifelong love of learning.

In this way, they are prepared for transition into mainstream public, private and international schools.


Our Philosophy

We pursue excellence in teaching and learning, seeking to give our students the gift of bilingualism and the skills needed of a global citizen in the 21st century. Nurturing students to become active, wise and caring shapers of a multilingual, multicultural world.

It is hoped that students will develop a genuine love of learning, a respect for individual differences, a willingness to seek challenges, and disciplined habits of mind and body that will guide them and be a source of strength and enjoyment throughout their life.
