Brighouse Elementary School


The focus at Brighouse is on our learners, who we are individually and as a collective group. We have four inquiry questions to guide our teaching and planning this year. These questions will help us plan meaningful and rich lessons for our students and engage teachers and learners together through the process. We wanted our “story fence art” and the reflective thinking that went into studying the details of our history to continue in our classrooms in everything that we learned. As we welcome new families and teachers each year to our community, it is helpful to have such a visual display of our values.


Inquiry Questions

  • How can we enrich student learning by helping students foster a growth mindset?
  • How can we better use the language of the core competencies in our planning and teaching?
  • How does who we are as a community impact student learning?
  • How can we help students be able to articulate their learning through story and art?
