When we think about our our world, I am grateful to be a part of the Bryant/Pattengill commUNITY. We are truly grounded in our mission of “inspiring EVERY student to think, to learn, to achieve and to care.” Bryant School will continue to share with our students, staff & community, the importance of Equity, Diversity and Inclusiveness for ALL students and families that attend our schools. We will continue to have our Harambees (Swahili for all coming together), which teaches our students and staff about the various countries and cultures that our school represents. Teachers will continue to incorporate culturally competent lessons into their daily teaching practices. We will continue to embrace our students and our families. Students KNOW when they come to Bryant, they are SAFE, they are LOVED, and they are ALWAYS WELCOMED in our commUNITY!
Our mission is to inspire EVERY student to think, to learn, to achieve, and to care in an environment that recognizes and celebrates individual differences.
Bryant and Pattengill Schools are teamed to create the only Paired Schools in the Ann Arbor School District. The Paired concept was implemented in September 1986 as a result of a reorganization throughout the School District. It draws students from several areas in southern Ann Arbor, including Briar Hill, Briarwood, Bryant, Georgetown, Lake Forest, Oak Meadows, Pattengill, Stonebridge, Stone School, Valley Ranch and Weatherstone neighborhoods, creating a diverse and culturally rich community.
Bryant serves children from Young Fives through Grade 2, while Pattengill serves the older children in Grades 3-5. This unique structure creates a rich learning opportunity, which allows the Super Pair to focus on the distinct developmental needs of the children at each of the two schools. It also results in multiple teachers at each grade level, which expands the variety of teaching expertise available to our students and staff.
Bryant classrooms are paired with classrooms at Pattengill and many joint learning experiences take place during the year. Several activities during the school year are held with Bryant and Pattengill jointly, such as the International Festival, Family Math and Science Nights, Movie Night, the Ice Cream Social in May and alternate PTO meetings.
Bryant Pattengill Schools are now Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Schools. PLTW is a project-based Science, Technology, Engineering and Math program. For more information on PLTW, please visit www.pltw.org.
Bryant Pattengill Schools also participates in the district's iPad Initiative. This means there is an iPad for every three students. Students use iPads and other technological devices to enhance their learning during curriculum rotations.
