Why Our School
Bryant Elementary was the first elementary school built after Washington became a state. The original Bryant school was built in 1891 and named after William Cullen Bryant (1794-1878), a journalist and poet who is remembered for his poem "Thanatopsis".
Our mission is to develop independent life-long learners who are compassionate, peaceful citizens who contribute to a global community. Using the Montessori philosophy, we provide a peaceful, enriched educational environment in which each child is personally encouraged to grow up to his or her fullest potential academically, socially, and emotionally.
