Ortega's Oration

Dear Bryan High Community,

I want to welcome all returning families to the 2021-2022 academic year and give a warm welcome to our 429 new freshmen families who joined us this year!

We are off to a great start at Bryan High School: We have made many building updates that scream Bear Pride, our Covid-19 mitigating strategies from last year remain in place and we thank our students for their cooperation, and we have kicked off our brand-new Freshman College and Career Academy this past week with three separate freshman team outdoor retreats that will help us build a strong community and increase achievement.

We appreciate your support in ensuring all our students are doing everything possible to meet their academic goals this year, including attending daily, arriving to each class on time, and participating in one of our many extracurricular activities, including student clubs, sports, and many other activities offered at Bryan High. I look forward to the many successes that await us this school and thank you for your continued support!

#TogetherBetter #WeAreBryan

Go Bears!

Dr. Ortega, Principal
