As a former student here, (a transition school between moving houses) I have had many bad encounters with many counselors and teachers! I have maybe, if not even, 1 to 2 teachers that I am fine with talking to. But counselors, AP's do not take the liberty to listen to students requests. Coming from another state... and a more prestigious school, pointing out negatives was way too easy! If you ask any student in this school if they are willing to transfer to a better school, they would take it without thinking twice. Both my sohpomore and junior year, my schedules were completely off even after constantly DEMANDING what class I needed (because I am an honors/ AP student) yet I am placed in ESL classes.. like what!?!? Teachers have failed me because of this schedule mishap and that I was "cutting" class fro 3 months! yea.. sure. The principal is probably the biggest mistake this school has ever had, I mean the school was going to close in 2012 because of her "great leadership". Being completely honest, a score of 4 is overrating this school. P.S those police officers walking around are like statues with a heartbeat never trust them :) No scamming.. all raw truth!
Though there are trouble makers, just like any other school, I really am enjoying my learning experience here. If you keep your focus and if you WANT to learn, then I recommend this school. There are so many programs and after school activities to get involved in and most of the teachers are not bad. It does have a bad reputation, but the school is getting better and better as time goes on. I thought I wasn't going to like it here, but I do. (I am a freshman here currently)
Horrible horrible horrible!!!! Teachers are disrespectful they fail you out of them not liking you or out of spite. When you get out of school you see a lot of gang affiliated kids infront of the deli, you see trouble makers, kids making awful a lot of noise, you see kids disrespecting pedestrians. It's so awful, I recommend everybody not to send your child here. The councilors never have time to listen to what you have to say except one or two of them it's beyond crazy in bryant. Don't send your child here for your own sake.
Didn't like the teachers or students,2 teachers were great,1 was not nice another couldn't spell,when I went here I ended up meeting the wrong crowd and my life went down hill I wish I had stayed in private school
There are positives and negatives to going to this school. If your child is planning to come there is a talent show in December at my school. The main focus is academics. Many students and teachers are friendly with you. However, there is at least 30 students per class to one teacher. I won't deny that our school doesn't have any air conditioner but, that is a minor thing. The food is delicious. When your a freshman though it's confusing to get to class. Some people there treat you very kindly. They have hands on activities.
This is one of the most amazing schools I have ever had the pleasure to encounter and become a part of. This school symbolizes that where ever a student wants to suceed, he can. This school has wonderful resources that help students become as prepared as can be to move forward in life and in college. The teachers who work here know what they are doing and always guide students in the right path, leaving the students to decide on what to do. The students who really want to suceed and take advantage of what the school has to offer, will find it here at Bryant High School.
