School is improving under the leadership of the new principal. After school programs are now being offered. Much needed assemblies are being brought in for the children. Playground safety is now being addressed and improved.

We've had a very good experience while attending this school. Kids receive a great education despite all the cuts. Principal is very responsive and will even stop as she passes by to ask you how things are going. She is very fair and does not tolerate bullying. The manor in which an issue is discussed, can affect the outcome, whether in school or in life. Sometimes rather than present a problem and discuss solutions, some people choose to blame, threaten and make excuses. This approach never works. Unfortunately, she has been reassigned for next year. Only negatives are that due to cuts, every minute must be used wisely, which leaves no time for learning to be made a fun experience. Not schools fault, its the district. That, and the average class size is NOT 26, its more like 32+ per class. Due to lower enrollment, there will be more combo classes in the future.

I am so pleased with Bryant Ranch. Amid budget cuts for several years in a row, the test scores and API have gone up. Students are doing well despite fewer school days. The teachers are working so hard to present the required curriculum. The principal is friendly and accessible. Glad we moved here.

Great School! Principal is open to hear parent's concerns and there are so many ways to get involved to stay well informed. Teachers work to meet every child's needs while managing all of the required curriculum and testing. The PTA meets monthly to arrange programs, manage fund raising in these trying economic times, and keep the really cool traditions of Bryant Ranch going. If more parents would get involved it would be even better.

Fantastic school, teachers and principal! This school encourages parent participation. Highly responsive to concerns when brought to the administration's attention. Many opportunities to volunteer on campus. PTA encourages parents to attend monthly meetings to keep aware of school activities and issues. The majority of staff, students and parents have a positive "find a solution" perspective, which lends to creating a positive environment for the students. One of the best schools in the district!

Very concerned about incidents on playground. It seems that there is not enough recognition of those students who cause problems,either physically or verbally, and action being brought against them to stop their bad choices. Principle has refused to hear concerns and need to address issues with parents that have brought situations and concerns to her. School board and district should start paying attention more to this school and it's way it addresses parents concerns. We are not being heard by a principle who is not active and aware of their surroundings.

Finding it hard to want to get involved in a school that is unwelcoming to new volunteers. Have had the sad experience of not feeling that there is support from staff, for those wanting to be involved. Staff,including principle, need to be involved more, and more welcoming and helpful or parents will choose to not help out. This was told to be a school known for its parent participation. What has happened is the question?

Not enough supervision at lunch time has led to many instances of bullying. Principal feels there is not a problem and down plays events. Clearly she does not grasp direct and indirect bullying and that to ensure no climate of fear exists needs to have more instruction on this topic. X2 to x3 times a year is simply putting the head in the sand

The Principal is known for being responsive to parents concerns. She was off campus at a District meeting the day I called. She contacted me after hours later that day to make sure my concern was addressed. I didn't think my question was that important. She made our family feel really important and that we mattered. We are glad to have our daughter under her academic leadership.

Bryant Ranch Elementary provides a safe, academically thriving environment for our child. We, like most of the families at Bryant Ranch, did the research and choose to move here based on Bryant Ranch Elementary's 900+ API scores, teacher qualifications, parent participation, PTA academic supplimental programs, and a very compitent, highly qualified Principal that is not afraid to expect the very best. We are very happy with our decision to place our child at Bryant Ranch.

Fantastic elementary school! Teachers and Principal are highly committed to working with students and parents for thier child's best possible academic outcomes. Principal always returns phone calls and addresses concerns. Front office secretaries are exceptional! They are very imformative and make our children feel special.

the teaching staff, office support staff (sue and Jan), Mrs. Silverman demonstrate a sincere desire to support the children and encourage their emotional and educational growth in a positive and patiently persistent manner. They are proactive in communicating with us as parents and with the students in respect to achievments and consequences for negative behavior. I am very pleased with the educational growth and socialization skills develepment my child has demonstrated since his enrollment in Bryant Ranch Elementary.

My family moved back to this area of Yorba Linda, just to attend the Bryant Ranch. The current principal was part of the great staff @ Bryan Ranch when our daughter attended kindergarten there in 2004. I found tremendous differences between our previous school & Bryant Ranch when our son went in to Kindergarten. I was thrilled to hear who the present principal was at Bryant Ranch. I went into the office to request a tour of the school, and she cheerfully came out of her office & gave me quality time. She is active in all school events & CARES about the children. You may need to a schedule an appt. with her; has many meetings but she will meet w/ you. She handled cutbacks in positive way; wanting children to feel little/no affect. Great scores = teachers & parents working together; they speak for themselves

The principal is never available. She avoids any meetings with the parents. The high test scores trophies should be going to the parents NOT the principal. During recess and lunch, there is not enough supervision for the kids. The entire school runs are volunteer parents. So if there are not enough volunteers then we can only pray that our kids are being well taken care of.

Really disappointed with this school . There are many seriously bully issues in this school . Reported to principal and teachers , but never get any attention nor help from them . My daughter is one of the victim who have been seriouly mentally bullied by two girls in this school and she became very negative and dislike school . We pulled her out from this school a few days ago before she turn into depression badly. The high testing score of this school is because most parents tutor thier kids at home or join after school turors , not because of the school credit. Principal is not helpful . teachers are tired and kids are very bad attitude in this school , many bullies, so all this made this school on star school. SAD !!!

The education land teachers evel of the school is good. Yet, the Principal is a disappointment. She is hardly available to talk to the parents. It almost feels like she's avoids us all together.

I have had my children at Bryant Ranch for a combined 9 years. I feel fortunate to have had my children get a top-notch education at a school with dedicated and well-qualified teachers who care and wonderful parents who volunteer their time and talent. My oldest child is now in high school getting straight A's in honors classes. I attribute his success to Bryant Ranch laying a great educational foundation for him to build upon. Bryant Ranch is one of the best elementary schools in PYLUSD.

We moved to the bryant ranch community in order to send our childrent to this school. We have been very dissapointed in the principal. You can feel a change in the school from previous years and it is not a good change. We are parents that are involved in our children's eduaction. Every time we have a concern it is blamed on the budget. The principal is consistently not on campus. When you leave her messages she rarely calls you back. I have talked to some parents that have made it a point to call multiple times in a day to finally reach her. We will pull our daughter to private next year. The teachers and parents/pta do a great job to make you feel very welcome.

The teachers, staff and parents all work very well together to make this a fantastic school. I find that the parents that complain are the ones that are not really involved.

While I think Bryant Ranch is a good school I think there is room for improvement. The quality of the teaching staff seem inconsistant and they push the test (STAR) way too hard.

The only good thing that I found at this school was the kindergarten teacher that my son had. When she moved up to first grade with him I was very happy. The teachers my other son had were beyond obnoxious!

Bryant Ranch School has well-qualified and dedicated teachers who take pride in their school. Students are exposed to on hands on science experiments, computer lab lessons, and music. The PTA is very active and dedicated to helping. My child had a positive experience at Bryant Ranch.

While no school is perfect, this one comes so close, I find it refreshing. Students are respected, challenged, encouraged and stretched in many ways. It's all good!
