The teachers are great! Always willing to work with the students and always willing to help. Their approach to teaching is different, they try to make it fun so students want to learn. Our sports teams are great and our cheerleaders are state champs. We have very strong community support. Our school is awesome!
Being a student at Robert C Byrd was an okay experience. I was involved in theatre which has a decent amount of funding due to our many sponsors. However, the other arts programs were consistently getting money taken out of their budget and given to the sports programs who did not need it. It was disappointing for the arts programs whom would win numerous awards being underrepresented in the school. Most of the teachers loved their job and you could tell but when there was a teacher that didn't like it, you could also tell. Some of the teachers would have favorites and they would basically announce it to the entire school and it was honestly extremely disheartening to see teachers talking badly about the students they didn't like so openly. Overall it is an okay school; not great but not the worst that you could attend.
