Education: Bryant school builds strong community

We have been homeowners in the Bryant neighborhood of Tacoma’s Hilltop for over 32 years. We have raised our family while living through the challenges of drugs, crime and derelict houses.

On Aug. 2nd our neighborhood celebrated National Night Out. Once again, we have confirmed that we are the luckiest neighborhood. We have an incredible, loving, connected, welcoming group of folks around us.

A huge part of our neighborhood success is due to Bryant Montessori School. Tacoma Public Schools has put effort into building a quality school that has attracted young families. It is true that strong schools build strong neighborhoods. We are extremely thankful to the school district, faculty and staff of Bryant.
