Byram Hills High School Reviews

Kids wear exhaustion as a status badge. The workload is insane. I'm a top-10% student, a diligent worker who has never had a problem with procrastination. Right after track, I go home and start my work immediately and most nights I'm lucky to be in bed by 1AM. It’s not just me.
You're put on the advanced track in middle school. I worked hard enough in sixth grade for that, but but many of my friends (and my brother) didn't come into their own until high school. By then it was too late, so they'll be stuck taking pre-calc as seniors even though I'm sure many of them would rock in AP Calc now. Even the kids on the regular track are stuck doing homework until 1AM.
Overall, mostly glad to be leaving soon: I've had a ton of great teachers, but mostly not so great ones. Wish I could get back those hours and hours of busy work. Pretty sick of the cliquey culture and the majority of students, including my friends, who, even though they’re generally accepting, are so so competitive.

My high school experience has been alright so far. There has been a lot of ups and downs throughout the four years. An up would be the services the school has recently provided for the students. However, these only pertain to everything but academical. They recently added a cafe, an array of HD TVs throughout the school, and a rumored "meditation" room in the library. The major down for this school as expected is the education and the teachers that provide such. Quite a few of them don't know how to teach and or know what they need to teach to the students for them to succeed in a particular subject. The school district needs to reevaluate those and get new qualified teachers...
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.
