No one’s too cool for this school. Bryant High School’s amenities and opportunities are gaining national attention.

With distinguished public schools, a low crime rate, stable economy and a fast commute into Little Rock, it’s no wonder BusinessWeek recently named Bryant one of the “Best Affordable Suburbs in America” and CNNMoney.com recently included it on a “100 Best Places to Live” list.

Bryant lures Arkansas newcomers and Metro Little Rock locals alike to a city that’s has grown more than 50 percent since 2000, a growth fueled by charm, conveniences and overall progress.

Proximity to Little Rock makes working in the capitol painless, but Bryant boasts plenty of education, retail and health care industry jobs of its own.

Families enjoy more than 250 acres of recreational space. A favorite is Bishop Park, which is home to nine baseball, six softball and two soccer fields, a community garden, nature trails, a sand volleyball court, two fishing ponds and a community center.

Bryant schools are a prime example of progressiveness with state-of-the-art amenities and educational opportunities. The district is often recognized for academic performance, and athletic programs earn top honors in everything from baseball to cheerleading.
