Bryan Middle School was awarded’s Thrive Award. The award recognizes schools that demonstrate positive learning environments for students and staff. Winners are chosen based on student and teacher responses to a state-wide survey that assesses a school’s leadership, teaching culture, academics, family engagement, and learning environment. Research shows that these features contribute to student success.

“The Bryan culture is positive because of the efforts of all of these stakeholders,” said Principal Jacquelyn Discipio. “When teachers, building leadership, and the community work together for the best interest of our students, magic can happen. It takes all three of these groups to help a school achieve success and we are grateful that the Thrive Award acknowledged all of those essential factors,” she said.

The results of the survey gives schools an overview of its “climate” by assessing factors such as strong leaders, collaborative teachers, ambitious instruction, engaged families and supported students.

“I continue to feel honored to work with such a dedicated staff, an involved community, and high achieving students,” said Discipio.
