Byron Center High School Reviews
I really have enjoyed my experience at Byron Center. Although there are minute things that I don't enjoy, the overall time I have got to spend at this high school, and school district in general, has been really awesome. There are many options for extracurriculars, including a diverse range of clubs as well as sports. I have loved getting to know different people in all my classes, as well as learning more about our school culture and how to promote it. This school provides its students with the tools they need to be successful while also allowing them to have fun while doing it!
Byron Center High School is a very physically safe environment, however the diversity is quite lacking. Since the population is highly Caucasian, there tends to be ignorance where other races are concerned. However, the Byron Center School District is aware of this and is currently attempting to make the school a more diverse and accepting place for people of all ethnicities. Once the district becomes aware of its issues, the administrators do their best to fix them as quick as possible. The education provided by Byron Center is stellar, most if not all students eventually take an honors or advanced placement course. All the teachers and administrators truly care about not only the academic success of their students but also the lives of their students. Overall, Byron Center High School is a safe, academically-inclined environment that provides their students with the skills they need to become successful for college and life thereafter.
We moved to Byron Center for the individualized education available in the district. There is support for success at every level if you go and seek help. The option to dual enroll at GRCC is allowing my child to experience some college online courses her senior year. For the most part, the teachers are dedicated and are prepared to teach every day. The administration has done a great job of supporting the teachers, so that they can teach and impact our kids.
