The Bryant School Board, Superintendent Randy Rutherford, administration and staff of Bryant Public Schools will[more] hold a day of celebration to officially open the new addition to Bryant High School and the new Hill Farm Elementary School.
The ribbon cutting ceremony for Bryant High School is 10 a.m., on Monday, Sept. 10. The Hill Farm Elementary ceremony is 1 p.m. Tours will be offered at both schools.
Community Open Houses are scheduled from 4-6 p.m. at both Bryant High School and Hill Farm Elementary on Sept. 10. This will be an opportunity for the public to tour the new high school addition, which adds 129,000 square feet and 40 new classrooms to the campus. Hill Farm is the eighth elementary facility in the district, with 624 students in kindergarten-fifth grade. The 32 classrooms in an 88,000 square foot building provide an impressive facility. Both projects are registered to achieve LEED certification.
Over the past 10 years, the population of the Bryant Public School District (BPSD) has increased by approximately 2,000 students — unprecedented growth that experts expect to continue. Currently, the District is serving over 8,500 students in 11 different schools, grades Kindergarten through 12th.
“We have reason to celebrate and thank the taxpayers in our district for making these buildings possible,” said Rutherford. “The community supported the millage election in 2009 that funded these facilities and many other much-needed projects around the district. These will be ongoing gifts to this community’s children who will walk the hallways for many years to come.”
