    Brayton is a GREAT school. The teachers are excellent. They manage the classrooms well and are able to reach each student at his or her level. The principal continues to work on improving the school in creative ways. The parents are super involved in the school and the community. This is a public school with a private experience.

    Brayton is a neighborhood school in a close knit community only 35 miles from NYC. Most of the kids walk or ride their bikes to school. The parents are both friends and neighbors. Most of the staff live in the town enhancing the community feel of the school.

    Brayton is a great school and my kids had great experiences. I was not particularly happy with their honors/E program but they are working towards a better format in the future.
