Byron Center High School Reviews
Byron Center High School was an extremely fun and positive environment! The school had an outstanding amount of opportunities for their students and prepared us for life in the real world. The sports teams, teachers, clubs, arts, theatre, and school spirit made it the best four years of my life!
My experience at Byron Center High School, entering college soon, in a couple months, has been a terrific roller coaster. The teachers were amazing and very helpful and many of them seemed like they had a passion for what they taught. When it comes to best schools, people think of great academics, great diversity, great equality, great people, great programs. This school has it all. Bullying is an issue I never see happen in the halls of this school, the manner of t is appropriate and well-ran. The sports are great to see, experience, and talk about since, for a small school like us, we are doing great. Overall, this school is a magnificent school to attend and it’ll be sad to leave it.
I loved the atmosphere of the school, the one thing I think could change is that the school is heavily based on athletics and Ap classes, however I think there should be a more open variety of classes so kids can explore their interests. The teachers are mostly well trained in their job however some of them are not the best at teaching and there are many kids un happy with them. The college readiness I think is okay, however I do not feel like the counselors did a good job at all of explaining the steps we need to be taking and guiding us throughout our high school experience. We also need higher diversity in our school, our district being mostly white people. I think we also need more clubs that are variety and are laid back.
