Recent Recognitions

Bryan ISD was recently honored as "Districts of Distinction" by the Texas Art Education Association. The honor that recognizes "outstanding leadership in promoting arts in their district and community" was only awarded to 43 school districts out of about 1,000 Texas school districts eligible to apply for it, putting the districts among the top 4% in the Texas Art Education Association.
The association said the selection was based on involvement in local, district & state art shows, participation in UIL art competitions, advocating for visual arts, community service, field trips & workshops.
Rayburn Intermediate School and SFA Middle School in Bryan ISD were recently named National STEM Campuses by the National Institute for STEM Education. 
Science, technology, engineering & math is so exceptional at both schools through the Odyssey Academy, which has also won an International Technology & Engineering Educators Association's Program Excellence Award.
Like any sound engineer, the core trait of an Odyssey Academy student is an aptitude for solving problems. Learning from Nationally Certified STEM teachers, the students regularly develop solutions to challenges in the real world.
Depending on their grade level, on any given day, you can find an Odyssey student designing bridges, prosthetics, underwater robots, and/or robots on Mars!
