My child has been going to Bryant since she started kindergarten. This is her 3rd yr in this school. My husband went to Bryant as a child and I went to North Sand Mtn. (the k-12 grade school about 5mi down the road) My plan was to send my children to NSM bc they could go through K-12 wihout having to change schools. My husband wanted our children to go to Bryant, so he talked our child into choosing Bryant and I was not happy about it. I kept thinking I'd take her out asap and move her to NSM....... Bryant has been the best thing to happen to our childs education. It is a a smaller school therefore she is getting more one on one time and care from the staff. We love Bryant and I dread the day she has to move to another school.

My child has gone to Bryant since Kindergarten. My child has had a wonderful experience at Bryant. The teachers have always gone above their calling to help him. He has come in during the teacher s planning time and received additional help as needed. Bryant also has high academic standards. I have heard several instances of high school students saying they have an easier time in high school because of what they received at Bryant. This makes me feel my child will be ready for the transition to come in a few years. I was surprised at the first review. I have had a lot of positive experiences, even when I have gone for conferences with teachers or I have gone in to speak with the principal about a concern. I always feel my concerns are important to them.

I was so excited to send my children to Bryant this year, however, excitement turned to disappointment as my older child struggles to make it through each assignment given. We have had numerous meetings with teachers and it seems all they want to do is point the finger at us, the parents, as the problem with why our child can't seem to get a grip on the daily assignments given. I know responsiblity lies at home to reinforce what is being taught, however, since when is it not the teacher's job to go the extra mile and ensure they are getting through to the students. Oh for a teacher who 'really cares' and takes the student's learning on as a personal goal to ensure all of their students achieve the best they possibly can. Principal is supportive, but not very affirmative in ensuring what is discussed in meetings is done.
