This is also very dangerous Bryan school full of Gangs, and Police. YouTube has Videos from students posting showing all the violence, along with Local TV station news on the Problems. Texas TEA rating has around 75% of BISD is on same type of Poverty programs and economically disadvantage If you look up the ACT and SAT scores the BISD Spin stops and you can see how low and bad of job they do. Their almost 180 points beyond CSISD on the SAT scores. BISD does a great Job of spinning their Low scores . If you can afford to live in a area other then BISD and Bryan do it. I learned this the hard way.

We are very impressed with the administration, staff and school as a whole. our daughter has grown up in the private college prep school sector all of her younger educational years. She is an exceptional student with strong leadrship skills and excellent sense of community. We are excited and have been impressed at the support and involment of the school administrators and staff throughout the school and the Pre-AP /AP programs have proved excellent. We had concerns of comprimizing our prior investment both financially and educational outcome and I can assure you our concerns are being placed at ease thus far! We feel our daughters next four years are going to be successfull and realistic.
