My kids love Bryan they like the smaller one on one atmosphere they get from being a bear. We visited other OPS high schools and did not get the welcoming feeling as when we visited Bryan. My kids want to be known by their name not a number like at some of the over populated schools. They are involved in many sports and clubs and are succeeding wonderfully in their honors classes. I feel the friendships they are making will be lifetime. Staff encourages them to do their best and discusses possibilities for their future. Overall I'm thankful and feel their futures are bright. I am also a parent that knows when you communicate with your kids school on a regular base (weekly) its shows in your kids academics. ...

Seems that the Administration at this particular High school need to go back and receive education on how to teach the kids and control their classes. This High school has no control over it's students the students seem to be the ones who are controlling the school, nor do the teachers have the curtesy to keep in touch with parents via e-mail.
