Inclusive Support at wý

Bright Star's Inclusive Education Department ensures that students cultivate strategic ways to improve their academic, social, language, and environmental challenges through self-advocacy, community awareness, and involvement to propel them to higher education and career opportunities of their choosing.

As a Bright Star parent said, "The teachers, the staff, and my family, we all work together as a team for my daughter's success. I wouldn’t be able to do it without their support."
