About our School


Located in downtown Riverside, Bryant is an ideal location as it is centered among the city’s museums, theaters, library, and art galleries. Authors, artists, architects, poets, and performers, along with other civic organizations, have shown a growing interest in developing partnerships that will support this new program. While enthusiasm for Core Knowledge and its potential for students is high, the challenge remains to make citizens aware of this school choice. Since Riverside Unified has become a “District of Choice,” students from within Riverside’s boundaries, as well as students from outside its borders are welcome to apply for transfers to attend Bryant Elementary in the early spring for the following year.

Core Knowledge© at Bryant School is a great way to link Riverside Unified School District’s educational options with our city’s motto of “City of Arts and Innovation,” not only for our residents, but all interested parties.  As the curriculum unfolds, no matter what level of ability a student starts with, he or she will experience a sense of achievement as knowledge and skills are mastered. Core Knowledge® guidelines cover language arts, history and geography, mathematics, science, art, and music, comprising well over half of a school’s curriculum. Other areas of study, such as local and state history, technology and physical education, are integrated with what is being taught in the Core Knowledge program.
