Open Quote Bryson Elementary is a good school with many teachers who love to teach and truly care about the kids. The administration is considerate of the parents and the students which makes going to school for the all much easier to handle. I would like to see more academics focused on the writing creatively and reading in a more motivated method in the upper grade levels; both areas are subjects the students don't want to be pressured into doing but should be shown the path of enjoyment of these essential skills. Overall, I recommend Bryson to any family who likes the one-on-one attention and a personal connection with the staff of their elementary school. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
