Two minutes at: Bryant Elementary

Editor’s Note: This is one in a series of two-minute videos offering a quick glimpse into one of AAPS’ 32 schools. At AAPS, our vision is Every Child. Every Day. Every one fully sees, values, and celebrates each child for exactly who they are, the gifts and strengths they bring to this world.

Bryant and Pattengill Schools are teamed to create the only paired schools in the Ann Arbor School District.  Bryant serves 282 students pre-k through 2nd grade, 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, including the International Festival, Family Math and Science Nights, Movie Night, the Ice Cream Social in May and alternate PTO meetings. 

Bryant and Pattengill Schools are now Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Schools, a project-based Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math program.
