My daughter is a first grader at Bryant. This is an amazing school. The principal Dr Pye and all the great teachers make this school the best in Independence. My daughter has received a wonderful education here, and my son will be going here in another year. Bryant is like a big family. I definitely give this school an A+!

My daughter went to Bryant from 2nd through 5 grades, and my son is beginning his second year at there (first grade). the staff is warm and professional, and Dr. Pye is a wonderful, hands-on principal (how does he remember everyones names?). This school, and all the staff, has earned 6 stars!

My daughter went to this school for almost two years. I never thought we would have such a wonderful experience in her Kindergarten and 1st grade years. I would just like to thank Dr. Pye, and his staff for the wonderful education you gave to her.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math and communication arts, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
