This school has excellent options available for students with the ability or drive to challenge themselves. Students tend to separate themselves through their choice of coursework, students from stable East Dallas homes cluster together in the Advanced Placement classes. The band is a renowned program, known for its SMU, Dixie land style The Premiere Showband of Texas. The athletic program is very competitive with the best teams (Swimming, Soccer, Baseball, Golf) receiving the most parental support. Overall it is a school that tends to exceed outsider levels of expectations; top grads routinely continue their education at Ivy League schools, UT, A&M, and SMU are also popular with the student body. It is also worth noting that the new Vickery Meadows high school will be opening soon and the Bryan Adams attendance zone will shrink from everything east of White Rock Lake to mostly the area between Northwest Highway and Ferguson.
i have to say while i don't think it is a bad school, it needs work. classroom arrangement and scheduling needs to be consistant. more accurate record keeping. teachers were very hard workers with limited support i had no complaints there.
Bryan Adams is a school where you can get the education you want for your child. In the last 2 years, several students have been accepted at Yale, with 2 more applying next year. The arts have impressed me, offering dance, theatre, band, visual arts, etc. An extremely well rounded school with great leadership.
I'm currently attending Bryan Adams, I graduate on May 23. I love it! There is so much spirit in the organizations. I'm the Drama Klub President so I've gotten to participate in a great deal of things. I'm also in National Honor Society, which truly puts a good person to the test. I have Mrs. Aufill for PreCal, Mrs. Leeman for English IV, Mrs. Ward for Patchwork (a theatre class for the elite), Mr. McCullom for Tech Theatre (my favorite by far!), Dr. Pinyion for Economics AP, Mrs. Guinn for Physics PreAP, and Mr.Hall for Goverment AP. He has a website at www.mrhallsroom.com Bryan Adams may not be the best place, but I certainly love it and thank the lord everyday that I choose to attend. I'm going to miss it so much.
I graduated from Bryan Adams in 1987. I do not live in the city and will not have children attending this school. I do not know how it is now but I remember how it was then. It was a great place to be. I will always remember Mrs. Leeman. I remember the structure and true learning she brought to the classroom. I have many great memories of high school and hope that the students that are attending now feel the same way.
