Bryan High School "1979" 40th Class Reunion!
Coming July 19-20, 2019, join us for a weekend of fun, friendship and reminiscing! See 40th Class Reunion flyer for additional information and how to register for the event. Please share with classmates.


Thank you for visiting our website, and welcome to Bryan High School! I am very excited to lead and serve as the newly appointed principal at Bryan High School. Education changed the trajectory of my life and I am passionate about transforming our students’ lives through education.

All great schools start with a clear vision of a better tomorrow. This year we will create a shared vision to move our school forward into the future. To begin shaping our shared vision of academic success for all students at Bryan High School, I want to know your aspirations for our school and the type of school you would like to see in the next three to five years.

As we work to shape a shared vision of Bryan High School this year, we will maintain a focus on raising student achievement through effective teaching and learning while aiming to graduate more students annually who are college, career, and civic ready. Great things happen when we keep our students the primary focus of our work and when we work as partners.

Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss your aspirations, suggestions, or ideas to help make this year the best it can be as well as create a vision for the future! Go Bears!

Under Legislative Bill 800, all school districts in Nebraska are required to report to the County Attorney all students who are absent for more than twenty days per year or the hourly equivalent.  Please provide information regarding your student’s absences so explanations for absence can be forwarded to the County Attorney.  The County Attorney will make a determination if there has been a violation of the mandatory attendance law on a case by case basis.
