The thing I liked most was how dedicated the teachers were to helping their students succeed and reach their full potential. They would have parent/teacher conferences and student/teacher conferences. Also, since we are a smaller school, teachers have time for their students. That really shows in the classrooms because teachers can go to each student and help them individually if they need it.

I have attended Byers since I was in kindergarten. I have watched everything about this school improve. In some things it didn´t , but all the bad outweighed the bad. I really made a connection with the teachers, the friends, and most importantly my education. I played volleyball my freshman through senior year that was honestly the best thing that ever happened. It really makes me sad that I am graduating this year but it is only the beginning of my journeys. My overall experience was really amazing , probably the best that has ever happened.
I've been going to this school since I was in kindergarten( 2010). I really like the staff at this school, They are good at teaching and the lunch ladies are good at cooking. The bus drivers know how to drive and the Janitors clean well. The food can be a bit bad in my opinion but that is a difference of opinion. The student are very nice and don't bully much. I would change the lunch and that is about it.
