Discover This School
Bryant Elementary School, located directly in the heart of the Mission District, is a small school dedicated to student excellence. Raising student achievement is our primary goal. Our nurturing environment and standards-based instruction support the development and language needs of all children. Equity, at Bryant Elementary School, means we provide a place where everyone's needs can be met. (Nosotros pensamos que igualdad significa que las necesidades de cada quien sean cumplidas.) It is important to us to assure achievement and joy in our school community. Our teachers collaborate. Our parents forge strong ties with our school. Our students rise up to the level of our expectations. Nearly all of our staff is Spanish/English bilingual. The staff is committed to developing every student's academic, humanistic, and creative potential, producing the next generation of smart, creative, kind, and caring adults.
For Bryant, joyful learners are: engaged; actively involved; inspired to ask spontaneous questions; motivated; curious; self-starters; cooperative/collaborative; insistent for more; solicitous of further knowledge; well-behaved; on-task; equipped with classroom-to-world connections (learning outside of the classroom); eager to come to school; appropriately challenged; encouraging of others to learn; consistent in positive relationships with their teachers and peers; proud of their success; talkative with their families about school; constant in taking risks; articulate about what they hear/are learning/have learned; active in leadership; secure (to share, etc.); confident; always ready to laugh; and committed to coming and staying in class. Because of the school's small size, staff, parents, neighbors, community helpers, and children know each other well. We plan and attend many events together, welcoming families as active players in our students' achievement and success.
