This year was my son's first year at Bryant. He absoluely loves the school and he adores his teacher. She is the best. She has taught him so much and when he came home, I reinforced it. He did so well here. He is on the high honor roll, and will be going to the third grade this fall. The princilple is wonderful, the teachers are great!!!! The teachers seem to really care about their students. Your child has a great chance of doing well here at Bryant, but, the staff and teachers can only do so much. Once our kids come home from school, we need to do our parts and reinforce what is taught in the class and make sure homework is completed and correct. We also need to reinforce to them that disrespect is not tolerated. I can see Bryant being rated a 10 in the future, but everyone needs to get involved where they can. We need more positive role models, both male and female. Who ever said there's no greatness in Bryant???? Bryant's children are our future, lets help them get there.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
