Byram Hills High School Reviews

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.
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.
