C.E. Byrd has been my home for the past four years. Byrd feels like one big family, and it shows in our school pride. Being a Byrd Yellow Jacket has been nothing short of an honor. The students are extremely involved in the school's variety of organizations and academia. Byrd lives up to its A-school recognition, and I feel both prepared and eager for college!
Going to Byrd has been a great experience! Since freshman year, the school has taught me so much. Not only have I gotten a great education and the teachers care so much about our deep understanding of the world, but I’ve also learned so much about myself and grown in such a great, classic high school environment!
