    This is a good school. I have two kids in grades 3 and 6 and we have seen nothing but good things from the principal the teachers etc. We were redistricted from Hobomock to Bryantville a few years back and I was wary at the time but Bryantville has been pleasantly and surprisingly good. The teachers my kids have had have been very dedicated and personable. My son has had two male teachers whom he has especially appreciated. Solid school.

    I have had a very mixed experience with this school. My daughter is in her 4th year here and is having an excellent experience. My sons on the other have both have some special needs and thier experiences have been sub-par at best. The person in charge of special ed at this school appears in my opinion to not really believe in the need for it. As a result these children do not get the education they deserve. One of my sons is now in a different school and is having a much more positive experience. My other son will be joining him next year. The new principal is ineffective and cold. The assistant principal is aggressive and totally over reactive. In the 7 years I have had children at this school the educational experience has gone downhill alarmingly.

    I have had three children in the Bryantville School and have been extremely happy with the quality of education they have all received (two of my children are current Bryantville students). We have had excellent experience with the teachers at this school. I have spent a great deal of time volunteering in classrooms and other areas and it is such a welcoming positive atmosphere.

    I am just dropping by to comment on how good an experience our son had at Bryantville last year in 6th grade. His teacher was a young woman Mrs. Brake who was so kind and compassionate toward our son that he cried at the end of the year and still misses her. For the parents who have Mrs. Brake this year your kids are in luck. Best of luck.

    They are not as enthusiastic about the learning process at this school compared to my daughter's last school. Also the lunches they serve (and the snacks) could be a lot healthier!

    I am so pleased to have my kids at this school. For years my sons learning disability was not diagnosed (previous school NOT Bryantville). The wonderful staff at Bryantville have been amazing my child is improving daily thanks to them!

    I'm so impressed with the principal Mrs. Macleod! She has really turned things around. I find her to be excited and enthusiastic about implementing necessary changes to bring up the schools test scores. The teachers are always polite and pleasant when you're greeted. I feel this is the core of the school...principal/teachers. My children have never been crazy about cafeteria lunches so they bring theirs. I feel the principal sets the tone of how a school is run. Not all kids are the same...she does a good job with antibullying and revisits it throughout the schoolyear with the entire school.

    I have two children enrolled at Bryantville. I have been extremely impressed with the quality of teachers and the principal. They have really turned things around since this town did not support putting money back into the schools and have made adjustments so the kids don't miss out on music art phys. ed etc. People complained about the problems getting the cafeteria up and running but that has absolutely NOTHING to do with the quality of education my children are receiving. That was the fault of the contractors who screwed up the job. I am 100% supportive of this school and I feel fortunate that my kids are here.

    The school is wonderful and is doing a great job of keeping us on track with academics in relation with the other schools in town. Yes we did have some issues with the cafeteria but the blame for that should be directed toward the contractors not the school system.

    I am extremely impressed with the education my children have received. The staff is like an extension of my family. The atmosphere is up-beat and positive and everyone cares. Things have changed so much since I attended; it was a bad thing if the principal knew your name.

    From an educational standpoint the school is outstanding. The teachers and extra curricular activities are great. They need to get the cafeteria running.

    Both of my children have attended this school from first to sixth grade. The quality of this school has gone from bad to worse. Not only is the teaching quality poor but the building is horrible as well. The children have not had a hot lunch in at least a year because of problems with the cafeteria. The lunches are so disgusting that my children wont eat them and the latest thing was to give them raw chicken followed by a phone call telling us to seek medical help if our children become sick. Poor teachers bad building and everything else means do not send your children here.
