Byron Center Charter School Reviews

The teachers truly care about the kids and do their best to get the kids to learn. Small classes gives kids personal attention and extra help if needed. If a kid feels left out or if there is a kid being mean or such it is seen and dealt with promptly.
There are fun after school activities like dances, gingerbread house building, ultimate frisbee and more. The high school band program is high quality.
The down side is that they don't have many extracurricular programs like sports or clubs. They also don't have many choices for electives in high school but they do offer online dual enrollment which is GREAT for kids who are college bound.
I feel it was the best decision I could have made for my kids.

I have attended Byron Center Charter School since the Fifth grade, and my experience with both the academics and the students/staff has been beyond extraordinary. There is a constant positive atmosphere among peers as well as a great work-friend relationship between students and teachers.
I like how the teachers are personal and actually get to know you as a person. I also like how the class sizes are smaller so that you really get to know the students in your class. Also, by having the same teachers all four years of hisgh school allows them to get to know you and know how to help you when you need it.
