My experience at H.W. Byers was great, from kindergarten up until my senior year, I've had a great experience. Anyone you ask may say the same, our athletics department, academically, and as far as culture wise, we're the most active school in the county.

I’ve been at H.W.Byers since I was 6 years old. I am now 16 years old. Byers has had some good times and bad times, but it is a good school. Everyone is a family at that school and if anyone has a problem there is always someone there to help.
The teachers work very hard and try their best to help students succeed. There is definitely room for improvement with class variety. There aren't many classes to choose from. Also, more school spirit would be a good change.
