I had a very pleasant at Byron High School. With a very small class size, I always received the help I needed. The teacher to student ratio was very reasonable. There were never very many AP courses offered, but this was made up of the dual enrollment opportunities we were given. Many juniors and seniors participate in a dual-enrolled experience through the University of Michigan-Flint, Baker, Mott, LCC, and the Genessee Career Institute. These opportunities made us college-ready and prepared us for our future college experience. Classroom sets of Chromebooks were used along with computer labs. The newly renovated science labs were used for Biology, Physical Science, Chemistry, Physics, and Anatomy/Physiology. Sports are offered at both Junior Varsity and Varsity level. Clubs are also offered including GSA, Robotics, Band, Choir, etc. Byron High School is a great school in a small farm town of Byron, Michigan.
very small and everybody knows one another. They are pretty good with college readiness and really push it. Teachers and administrators can be much better.
I enjoyed my time at Byron High School because the teachers were friendly and I had a solid friend group.
It’s a very small school, but if you are interested in being around a place where everyone knows everyone then it’s the school for you. The community is great, there is always things happening around town that pull everyone together. As far as changes go I would hope they get a remodel done it is a very small, very old school. The teachers are great and they k ow their students.
I love Byron High School! The teachers and faculty are fantastic, extremely helpful and attentive to their students' needs, willing to assist them in any way they can. I wish we'd get air conditioning or possibly another set of bathrooms in the main two hallways.
I suppose I don't have anything to compare it to, but I love the people there and I'm glad it's where I went to high school. I have to admit it's definitely not perfect though, as it's rather lacking in class choices, especially as it has only one AP class and limited Honors courses, though this is simply due to the fact that it's such a small school. Unfortunately, I doubt this issue will be resolved as the class sizes are just getting smaller and smaller every year with the advent of school of choice, and I can't really blame parents for not wanting their kids to go there. I still love it though.
I liked the small town feel of the school. I enjoyed getting to know everyone and feeling like a part of the tight-knit community. I would like to see more funding put towards sport and further students' academic opportunities.
Small school going from overcrowding to being under crowded. Has some really good teachers and administration. But, the rest are very discriminatory to those with disabilities like myself.
My Experience at Byron was amazing. At this school you feel welcomed, they treat you right and will do whatever it takes to prepare students to college. Teachers will stay after or come before school to help students with work or even applying to colleges. Teachers will make us do work that college students do to prepare us. In this school theres no fights happening because each grade acts like a family theres barely any drama and we all help each other. if you walk into the cafeteria during lunch you will see students helping one another with studying for a test doing homework or just making up practice problems. For sports theres no drama happening all sports teams get along. Byron is a great place to go to high school or even elementary.
I had a great experience throughout high school through extracurricular activities like track, cross country, bowling, etc. I also had an amazing experience joining the robotics team and this was by far the best experience and learned the most from it.
The teachers are willing to help if the student is willing to put the time into wanting to be helped. The school is not bad but not the best. Small town school where you get to know everyone in your grade.
We don't live in a very bad neighborhood, so it isn't necessary to include a lot of safety measures. We rarely have any threats, weapons, or dangerous situations happening around our area.
There are a wide variety of extra curricular activities for students to partake in - especially for such a small student population. Some clubs are more active than others, but anyone is welcome to join whatever they choose to.
this school has given me the opportunity to become a wrestler that is ranked third in the state in the going into the state tournament. It has also given me the chance to explore agriculture through FFA and allowed me to take animals to the fair every year
The teachers here are very approachable if you have certain issues and will due the best the can to help you with what you need.
I really enjoyed attending this school. Most faculty members were approachable and most students were friendly. The dividing of the sports money would be one thing I think was a downside. As a runner I didn't think we got much money to go towards our invitationals and such.
The teachers are nice and most students were okay. The area itself and the attitude is very conservative. Does not accept diversity well. Very racist. Very homophobic. Classes were too easy. The building is very old and out-of-date. Technology was not well integrated into the classrooms.
