I really was able to observe by volunteering for a week. I was able to see how they conduct and treat the children. With respect and a lot of concern for the children and especially about bullying. I was very impressed with Principle Mrs. Battle. The school has great after school programs!

If I could give this school zero stars I would. I have never seen a more ridiculous approach to bullying than here. The principal & assistant principal look to blame the bullied child rather than to just try to come to a resolution with the child(ren) doing the bullying. My son finally ended up being home schooled for the last month because the bullying was so out of control & he was told if he set foot on school property that the cops would be called & he would be cited for trespassing on school grounds even though he is still an enrolled student. Needless to say, he will not be coming back to gangbanger middle school...a.k.a. BRYANT. If you want your kids to have issues by all means, send them to Bryant...otherwise I would recommend avoiding this school at all costs.

hard working assistant principal, she is very effective. Principal is good, teachers are nice and outgoing. This is a typical inner city school with city issues, but the leaders are top notch.

What a horrible school. Unbelievable is all I can say. The school rating should be lower. It is only a 3 because my kids attended there.

The worst experience my child has had her entire life. The approach to bullying was ridiculous, ineffective and increased the inappropriate treatment.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Utah used the Utah Criterion-Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 2 through 11 in Language Arts, in grades 2 through 8 in Math, in grades 4 through 8 in Science and upon completion of certain courses in grades 8 through 11. The CRT is a standards-based testing program, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Utah. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
