I have 2 children in Bryant, one going into 6th and one going into 2nd. We have been very pleased with all of the teachers we have had at Bryant. Mrs. Simko and Mrs. Smith are great principals. They know the children and the parents, not just the kids that are problems. Everyone is very welcoming and we have not had a bad experience yet!

Bryant Elementary is the best school in North Texas. Their faculty members are bunches of angels. They are invisible and they don't have wings.

I moved to texas this school year and Bryant has definately been a positive experience for my second grader. I liked the fact that each lesson encorporated more than one subject. For example for Cinco De Mayo, the students learned how to count in spanish, spell spanish words and discussed popular healthy foods that are normally eaten in the hispanic community. Teachers are outside when school is out, this gives parents the opportunity for a daily mini report. Also the daily activiy report that parents have to sign keeps parents abreast of what is going on. I would not trade my child's teacher for the world and she is indicative of the rest of the staff. The downside to Bryant is the traffic when picking up the students it seems caotic. There is a fee to ride the school bus and more parents should be invited on field trips.

I was very disappointed with this school. My 5 year old boy attended this school last year and we had problems from the start. We knew that our son had some special needs and we informed his teacher on the first day. Our requests for his seating in the class were completely ignored. Even after we got a specialist to diagnose our son, the school ignored state regulations regarding how he was instructed. I am sure that this school would be fine for most children, but if a family has a child with ADD, ADHD, or ODD this is not the school to attend. The staff seems to revel in pointing out the childrens defficiancies rather than try to help correct the problems.

I cannot begin to sign the praises of this school. Starting with the teachers and principal I have been very satisfied with Bryant Elem. I have two sons that attend both Kindergarten and 2nd grade. Wonderful Library, open nice lunchroom, clean new gymnasium lots of extracurricular activities. I believe there is a very big parent involvment with this school. I see it when I attend meetings or any functions at the school. Parent and teachers alike want to be involved with the childern and their education. Mrs. Simko is a wonderful pricipal. The school itself is new, cute, open, clean. Once again, I can't say enough wonderful words about Bryant!

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
