My children have had wonderful teachers and I'm very happy with their education at Bryan Elem.

My daughter is struggling in the first grade because the kindergarten teacher taught nothing at all last year.

This school is wonderful, the teachers and staff are like family and truly care about each child. I have one child at bryan currently and one that is now at the middle school and I would not have my children anywhere else!

I went to Bryan from K5 until 6th before the middle school was built. The school and the wonderful staff has left a lasting impression on my life. I wouldn't send my future children anywhere else.

I love Bryan! My husband and I recently got custody of his two sons. We were nervous about multiple transitions for the boys. They have done well academically and socially. The staff at the school and the parents in the Morris/ Kimberly area have welcomed us with open arms. We are almost at the halfway mark of the boys' second year, and I think that they have made great strides fundamentally.

My son started first grade this year at Bryan Elementary. I just want to let everyone know how pleased we are with the school and especially his teacher. Ms. Grisham has been the Best. I was so nervous about my son going from private school to public but so far our experience has been wonderful. Thanks to all the teachers and staff at Bryan Elementary.

This is an excellent school, due for the most part, to wonderful and caring teachers like Ms. Beth Cunningham. She is the example of everything a teacher should be, and is loved and admired by all who have been fortunate in knowing her.

This school surrounds itself by parent/teacher involvement and I cannot say enough about the academic programs offered for K5-5th Grade. Not to mention the Physical Education Program is top notch they stongly promote and teach healthy lifestyles for our future!!
