Each cluster is intended to provide students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to complete high school to begin work on a post-secondary degree or to enter the world of work.

Bryan High School operates on a block schedule model. Students have only four classes per day and now earn in eighteen weeks the same amount of credit that would have taken a year under the traditional approach.

Along with the many course offerings, Bryan High School has two academies: Urban Agriculture, Food and Natural Sciences Career Academy and Transportation, Distribution Logistics Academy.



Omaha Bryan High School was named after Nebraska politician William Jennings Bryan. Bryan High opened in 1971 however, the history began during the 1964-1965 school year when students first began taking classes at what is now Bryan Middle School. Bryan Middle was originally designed as a junior-senior high with the first class graduating in 1968. Increasing enrollment led to the need for a separate high school, thus a new school was built and opened. Recent renovations continue to enhance the learning environment for students. Bryan High has a history of innovation and change. That tradition continues.
