Byram Hills High School Reviews

Byram Hills has a closed campus policy, so the security of the students is generally ideal. There is usually a police man on campus. Many of the students are friends with the officer and he is seen as a respected authoritative figure, not as a threat. Byram Hills participates in the peer leader programs, having seniors help lead in teaching sophomores more advanced health. Bullying is not tolerated at all and if the principles or teachers find out, there will be trouble. However, unless reported, it does tend to slip by them sometimes. Overall, Byram Hills is a very safe school and a generally healthy environment too.

There are many extracurricular activities. There are so many clubs that students can get involved in and they don't require too much commitment so many students do participate in more than one. Byram Hills has a great theater program and the students who usually aren't athletes are helping with the show. There are many sport options and the teams range on how good they are, and therefore their selectiveness. Most students participate in some type of after school program. A lot of the guys tend to use the weight room in their offseason or whenever they feel like they want a workout.
BHHS is generally a good school system but it caters to the top 10% of the class and students with special needs. Students in the middle are often overlooked and not brought to their full potential. The school is very proud of its record and academic achievements but I would venture to guess that 80% of the students receive some type of out side tutoring in order to excel. Parents in this district spend thousands of dollars on tutoring from elementary school on to college prep. Teachers are generally engaged but the quality fluctuates widely from teacher to teacher. Social Studies is by far the weakest department. The students do have school spirit and it is a nice, close knit community. Very little bullying and an emphasis and awareness of providing support for good mental health.
