    Brilliant Elementary is a warm nurturing school. It is more like a private school than a public school in that everyone knows who you are and looks out for you. The teachers and staff are excellent and provide an exemplary education for the students. Parents are welcome at school and are considered in decision making. BES has been accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools for over 25 years. They are an AMSTI - Alabama Math Science and Technology Initiative School and serve as an AMSTI demonstration site. They have been reviewed as one of the top schools in the state.
