    I feel Bryant Elementary cares a great deal about their students and their success. The principal gets really involved with their school. I always see him outside greeting the children as they go to the door. He knows their names and is very polite.

    My daughter is a first grader at Bryant. This is an amazing school. The principal Dr Pye and all the great teachers make this school the best in Independence. My daughter has received a wonderful education here and my son will be going here in another year. Bryant is like a big family. I definitely give this school an A+!

    My daughter went to Bryant from 2nd through 5 grades and my son is beginning his second year at there (first grade). the staff is warm and professional and Dr. Pye is a wonderful hands-on principal (how does he remember everyones names?). This school and all the staff has earned 6 stars!

    My daughter went to this school for almost two years. I never thought we would have such a wonderful experience in her Kindergarten and 1st grade years. I would just like to thank Dr. Pye and his staff for the wonderful education you gave to her.
