    justin D
    Justin Daigle is being recognized as one of the top five Journalism Education Association advisers in the nation.  Herff Jones nominated Justin last Spring and ten students, parents, colleagues, and industry professionals shared their firsthand experience of working with him through letters of recommendation. All nominees were asked to respond to a series of essay questions and were then observed doing what they do best, teaching and inspiring student journalists to tell the stories of the their schools.

    Justin has been the keynote speaker at numerous conferences throughout the country including Utah and Washington DC and will be heading to Hawaii this summer for an all-expense paid trip to speak to students on the Big Island. To see Justin with his yearbook students or to see one of his  keynote speeches is a real treat. Justin will receive the Special Recognition Award at JEA's Denver conference in April.

Welcome to BHS

  • Dear Brighton Students, Parents and Community Members,

    Welcome to Brighton High School, home of the Bulldogs. BHS is one of the first comprehensive high schools in Colorado dating back to the late 1800s. Our school is located in the heart of the Brighton community. The Brighton community is located northeast of Denver, Colorado.

    Thank you for taking a moment to explore information about one of the finest high schools in the United States. Brighton High School has a long tradition of excellence in all facets of student life. Our faculty is focused on helping every student achieve every single day. We are an accredited AVID school preparing and supporting our students to be life long learners and to challenge them to go farther and achieve their dreams. All students are encouraged to take the most challenging course work possible in order to be ready for a very competitive global economy. In order for our students to challenge themselves, we offer both Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) classes in many different content areas.

    We are very proud of our authentic “Bulldog Spirit” as we participate and compete with the top high schools in Colorado in athletics, activities, performing arts, visual arts and academic achievement. We have wonderful teenagers attending BHS who consistently push themselves to learn and achieve.
