The Brighton Area School District is a public school district in the metropolitan Detroit area. It serves the city of Brighton, townships of Green Oak, Brighton in Livingston County and parts of Lyon Township in adjacent Oakland County. The district consists of seven schools. Four elementary schools containing grades kindergarten through fourth; two intermediate schools educate students in grades five through eighth; and the high school takes in grades nine through twelve.[1]

In order to balance the budget, the school system was restructured. The elementary schools now house grades K-4, Maltby is grades 5 and 6, and Scranton is 7 and 8. The high school remains grades 9-12.
