It was a wonderful experience to work with the company.

Taught Summer Program (Former Employee)

I worked at Brightside Academy part-time for more than a year

ProsThe children need someone who is lovable and compassionate.

ConsThey did not have enough things for the summer program to do. Especially while the children were napping. That is why there were behavior problems.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
