I was so fortunate to go to school here — AMAZING school district. I loved the teachers, they were always helpful & there for you and were amazing teachers Academically with great personalities. The school is very football oriented and other sports don’t get as much attention; however, the Football team has a history of being great (which brings in money & attention) & the head coach does a ton of fundraising (unlike many other sports) — so it makes sense why the town is so football oriented. This was my only complaint about going there, being a female who played sports other than football, but i understand why my sports didn’t receive the attention or funding that football did. Anyone who speaks less about this school didn’t utilize their resources or has biased information.
Byron throughout the four years have made me and everyone who goes to this school makes us feel safe! As you go through the school “ladder” the amount of classes you get to pick increases but there isn’t that much classes that students would really like to do.
Most if not all of the teachers are interested in the students and willing to help and put forth time and effort to better our education, however there seemed to be a lot of money spent on unnecessary things to make the school look better in the eyes of surrounding communities.
