Brightwood Elementary School is located at 2001 Brightwood School Road in Greensboro, NC. Our campus consists of our main building, a mobile quad unit, seven mobile units, and a beautiful new outdoor classroom located in our inner courtyard. 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.
What We Believe
Brightwood is a community of 21st century learners who value the importance of education by consistently promoting mutual respect, personal responsibility, and high expectations.
Our Mission Statement
The Brightwood School Community will create a positive learning environment where individual needs are met through:
- Establishing and developing relationships using clear coherent expectations for students, parents, staff and community.
- Consistent implementation of Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS).
- Rigorous instruction focused on students' development of critical thinking, problem solving, information and technology skills, and collaboration.
- Progression towards highly functioning Professional Learning Communities (PLC).
The Brightwood Creed sets the tone of the day for students and creates a focus for them. It will be recited by all students each morning during the morning announcements. While the creed is recited, all movement and talking throughout the building should cease, especially in the hallways.
As a Brightwood Tiger, I will show

I will be successful!
