I have had 3 children attend Bryan Elementary. Excellent school. Their strength lies with its staff. They are very caring, and consistently provide challenging and innovative curriculum. Although the staff has changed over time, the strong academic culture has remained the same. My children were well prepared for Middle School.

Bryan has very high standards for student achievement. The teachers really care about the students and bend over backwards to help them. The PE and music teachers do an excellent job. I love the smaller size of the school, my daughter did not feel like a little fish in big water. There are students of different socioeconomic and racial backgrounds, which to me was a plus for the school.

This school is terrific! The teachers care deeply about all of their students and work hard to make sure the students are working toward their potential. My kids loved going to school at Bryan and I recommend it to other families. The only thing that needs improvement is the level of parent involvement. I think it could be higher.
