C.E. Byrd High School has been the home to some of the absolute best experiences of my life. Although it is booming in population, there is a place for every single person to find their role and thrive in it. Throughout the school, the spirit and pride of Byrd High School is so real, as every person is actively involved in cheering on every player and every student at every event. Not only am I able to meet so many new people every year, I also have been able to grow close with my teachers as well; the bonds and friendships that I have made at Byrd will definitely leave me in tears when I graduate! With so many great things about Byrd, it is truly hard to suggest any changes!

C.E. Byrd High School was like a second home to me. It is like one big family! There are so many different ways to stay involved in what we call "The City". "The City" of Byrd is so diverse and full of outstanding opportunities. Without attending Byrd I would have missed out on many things such as academic greatness, student government activities, and spirit filled sporting events. My time as a Yellow Jacket at Byrd High School will hold amazing memories for a lifetime. "Forever deep within our heart, the Purple and the Gold".
C. E. Byrd High is an amazing school that has a great ability to make everyone feel involved and welcomed. Not only are there hundreds of clubs and groups, but it is extremely easy for students to create their own club. Just this year I have joined three brand new clubs that students have created because they are passionate about it. Besides clubs, Byrd has extremely devoted students, alum, and faculty that attend every football game as well as other sports. Academically my school also excels. I have the ability to take five AP classes as a junior and have already taken three in my high school career including the AP Capstone program. One thing I would like to change about the school is the bathroom and water fountain facilities.Another complaint would be the dress code especially for female students.Overall C. E. Byrd has created an incredible high school experience for me and most of my peers.
