Bryan Elem has gone downhill, and is only getting worst under Principle Stutt. It has had 4 difft principles in 5 years, and DOE site itself shows "disruptive behavior offenses" has risen to an all time high under Stutt. The school is not accredited, and if you can request your child to go to another school - DO IT!! I have had 2 children go through Bryan Elem now, for 3 years each. We were very pleased with our first experience (from 2006/7 - 2008/9). The teachers were pleasant and really on top of things. Teachers recognized him as "gifted" and began collecting work to help him get to the gifted center. The art teacher recognized his talent for drawing, and got him accepted into a specialized art program. The teachers are wonderful! Principle Slade was loved by the kids and even the teachers seemed to like her. Our more recent experience has been the complete opposite. Despite getting BETTER grades than the first, she was overlooked. Records lost. Stutt didn't know what was going on in his own school. Some students didn't even know who he was. Our child didn't want to go back again, so we pulled her out. Stutt is making things even worse. RUN!!

Jane H. Bryan is on the upswing and I think that with the consistent vision from the leadership of the school it will continue to improve in educating children and providing a positive place to learn.

My son is in special ed at Bryan after acouple of years. His first year of pre-k was at Bryan second year of pre-k was at another school. He was supposed to go the swine one but somehow didn't last minute. I feel they don't go by his IEP full and have him in one class all day everyday with 3rd 4th 5th graders. I have always had problems although the teacher is great I just think she is overwhelmed. The staff is rude to children. They never had any feild trips class parties or an award ceremonies. They never did anything fir Mothers Day or last day of school IR feild day like the rest of Hampton schools. Or maybe they did I just never knew because they never answer the phone their websites calendar only will show september or they expect my son to tell me. The only thing he tells me is who picked on him that day. I'm fed up and and have had a couple of meetings. I wished Bryan was closing and not the other one. That school was way better staffed and very parent involved. Well I must say Bryan "yes you can" .... that is motivate me to moving. Good luck to the other parents maybe I had a bad experience because my son has a disability.

Bryan has a wonderful resource of teachers, and the volunteers are wonderful. However, the drawbacks that I faced were the unwillingness of cooperation between the Principal and I. I had a problem, and the Sr. Secretary and Principal himself gave me the cold shoulder. I do want to say thanks to Mrs. Warren and the rest of the staff, and I hope my child continues to have a wonderful year at Bryan. The music, Art and PE depts are great.

My son had attented Bryan for two consecutive yrs and I must say the staff from bryan are wonderful and I like how they all work with the children, and how they get the parents to be involved with there kids whether its helping with home work reading or just plain family time and how important that is in helping them succeed in school that is so important, and I would definetly say we both miss Bryan elemantary me and my son. P.S We Miss You Jane H.Elementary. 'Go Patriots'

My daughter is in her second year at Bryan Elementary and I love it. Her teachers thus far have been great and have gone out of there way for me. She has excelled here and the atmosphere is warm and caring and encouraging. I'll admit that the cafeteria is not the best but then again the students are there to learn--not eat a four course meal. THe principal and office staff is great and they make an effort to know every student. I like the fact that the school is small and therefore more personal. All in all I am extremely satisfied with their performance.

Our experience at Jane H. Bryan wasnt that bad, but there are a few things that I would have liked to see them change. The lunchroom workers are rude. Everytime I have went there they were rude to the kids. They shouldnt have people like that working in elementary schools. They look like they were just let out on parole. Some of the teachers there I cared less about, but I think you get that at any school. I think more parents and teachers need to get involved, but it seemed like the teachers discourage parent involvment, but yet the teachers dont want to go the extra mile either. All in all, I think that they need to get rid of 'low income' as reason they have low scores and really care about the education of the children.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
