Default How is the Bryant area public school system?

Hello LR forum members,

I have been exploring the Bryant area as I am considering a move to the Little Rock area. Bryant seems to be a nice town to live. However, I would need some advice about elementary and high schools in Bryant. How are they compared to LR schooll system? Central High in Little Rock seems to be rated quite high. Are the Bryant schools quite good? I have never lived in Central Arkansas. Thank you.

Bryant schools are generally considered among the better schools in the state and certainly among the best in Central Arkansas.

Depending upon where you're moving from, that might be a good thing -- or it might be scary. Remember, especially if you are moving from a state with a great, highly-regarded education system, that even the best school systems in Arkansas wouldn't even make it to mediocre in some states.

Best wishes.

Both my kids are in Bryant PSD. I was told they were the best when we moved here and that I just had to have my kids in there from ppl that I had met through family. I have not had any problems or concerns. Hurricane Creek elementary seems to be the best. Bryant Elem has a lot of kids and the building is older They added a 10th Kindergarten class this year bc of over population. Hurricane Creek is brand new. You will have to attend whichever school you are zoned into so where you live is key. Bryant High School is getting a major facelift right now. As far as grades and acedemics you can check out greatschools.net and get more info or the school website Bryant Public Schools I must warn you the website looks like a popularity contest. Good luck. Sorry to sound so bah humbug Im feeling a little under the weather right now =)

While Central High School is full of history and very diverse, and the school is rated a 5 (greatschools.net) you would have to live in that area to attend that school, and it is not in the best area of Little Rock. We lived in Bryant for 15 years. Our daughter graduated from Bryant High School. It is rated higher academically, not very diverse, and it has it's problems. Our daughter played basketball for Bryant. The coaches (both women) were complete psycho's. Our daughter tore both ACL's and had 4 surgeries. They never called her to check on her. (!@#$%^) I begged her to quit, but she said being on the team gave her protection in the school. She is graduating from the University of Arkansas this week. She was on an academic scholarship. Which one you choose depends on a lot of different criteria. Bryant is pretty country, by that I mean redneck (hey I'm a southern girl so no one get there panties in a wad over that), pretty safe. We were never robbed in Bryant, sometimes did not lock our doors. Go to both of the areas and see if you would feel comfortable living there.

Actually, Central is a magnet, so you can live anywhere in the city. You just have to apply and be one of the ones accepted.
