As a full-time eighth grade student at Brightmont Academy in Scottsdale, Dan is feeling happier while overcoming academic struggles and learning at his own pace.
Brightmont Academy specializes in providing one-to-one instruction for students and has three campuses throughout the region in Deer Valley, Scottsdale and Chandler.
Frustrated with the traditional classroom environment, Dan’s mother sought out an alternative that would bring out the best of her son’s academic abilities. What she found at Brightmont was an environment where Dan could really focus and enjoy subjects, making school less stressful.
“Dan loves the one-to-one approach since he can master a section within a subject then move on to the next section without the need to do busy work,” said Dan’s mother, Mirit. “Brightmont is a great match for Dan and he is happier young man since he started at Brightmont Academy.”
Dan’s biggest struggle was with writing and through the one-to-one approach, he’s been able to focus and improve his writing skills. His grades have also risen dramatically in all other subjects.
“Dan is highly gifted and with the undivided attention of his teacher, he can delve into subjects with greater depth, allowing him to work above grade level in some subjects,” said Brightmont Scottsdale Campus Director Rande Hoggard.
Dan enjoys tennis, reading, hiking, traveling and video games but his true passion is in computer hardware. This year, he built his own computer from scratch!
Dan is currently an eighth grade student at Brightmont Academy – Scottsdale Campus.
