    Brightwood Elementary School is located at 2001 Brightwood School Road in Greensboro, NC. Although Brightwood Elementary School has been in our community for decades, our current facility was built in 2003. (The "old" Brightwood facility now houses the Guilford County Schools Office at the corner of Lees Chapel Road and Brightwood School Road.) Brightwood is home to about 600 students in grades PreK through 5, as well as many dedicated teachers, administrators, assistants, and support personnel. We welcome you to visit and enjoy our campus by checking in at the main office.

    Brightwood is a Title I school, which means we receive federal funding based on the socioeconomic status of our population.

    Show your Tiger Pride! Our school mascot is the tiger, and our colors are blue and gold. Teachers and students are encouraged to wear school colors and Brightwood shirts each Friday.
