Our Small Beginnings
Our Small Beginnings
Brightwoods School is the brainchild of the visionary and innovative educator, Teacher Ana, who dreamed of creating a place of learning where children could thrive beautifully.
In 1993, Teacher Ana started a one-classroom affair at the Villa Angelina site in Angeles City and named her school, The ABC Factory. With eight vibrant preschoolers as her first students, Teacher Ana’s dream to make learning fun and lasting started to take shape.
In 1995, with the opening of Grade 1, the school changed its name to Brightwoods School and was duly registered with the then Department of Education, Culture and Sports, and the Securities and Exchange Commission as a non-stock, non-profit organization.
The school has since set February 14, 1995 — the day it received its government permit to operate — as its official Foundation Day.
The succeeding years, henceforth, saw the school’s relocation to its present site at Angeles Citicenter, Pandan, Angeles City, and the opening of the other Elementary grade levels.
Brightwoods School is recognized by the Department of Education. It now offers complete Preschool, Kindergarten, Grade School, and High School courses.
To date, Brightwoods has attained a lot of milestones:
SY 2000 – 2001
SY 2004 – 2005
SY 2007 – 2008
SY 2016 – 2017
SY 2017 – 2018
SY 2020 – 2021
Another significant part of our history is the opening of Brightwoods School City of San Fernando (formerly known as Highgrove Child Development Center) on September 20, 2004. The school continues to strive for excellence and stays committed in providing the best Preschool and Primary education not only to its clients in the City of San Fernando, but also across Pampanga.
In light of the accelerated changes in the landscape of education, Brightwoods continues to shift, adapt, and apply new ways, strategies, and technologies that will bring about the development of 21st century skills and attitudes among our learners.
By many measures, Brightwoods School is still small and quite young, but the distance the school has gone from the point at which it started is truly remarkable. It has now grown into a more ideal and respectable campus with an atmosphere and ambience reflective of its philosophy of child-centeredness.
Indeed, Brightwoods has gone a long way, but the journey never ends. As Teacher Ana puts it, “Our work is great, our work is grand, our work is good. It is not easy work, there is always something, and it never is done.” And so, we will press on and do this work the Brightwoods way.
Together, with our founder at the helm, we will continue to write the beautiful story that is Brightwoods.
