I love Byron Center! Everyone is super friendly and the staff makes everyone feel welcomed! The sports are not too competitive and everyone has a place at BC! The teachers help with schoolwork and they prepare you for college. With the new addition, there is space for everyone to spread out and it's a very comfortable learning environment.

Byron Center is a high-quality school. They excel in helping students prepare for college and have classes that challenge the student body. The staff are very helpful, many put in the extra effort to help their students succeed and reach their full-potential. At BCHS it's very hard to find a faculty member who doesn't genuinely love or care about their job. The downfall of Byron Center is that they are almost too much of a sheltered community, they implement rules and regulations in dances, school, and sporting events every so often that it has began to hurt the school culture to where the students don't enjoy attending Byron Center High School. They need to work on implementing more up-to-date ways of getting students involved with the school to where they enjoy attending BCHS.
Byron Center is a good place to cultivate a general education. The fine arts program is wonderful and the sports are great as well. The high school, in specific, lacks diversity, but Byron Center is making an effort to change this!
