Robert C. Byrd High School Reviews

Byrd was built in the 90s, opened in the 1996 school year. The facility is large but cheaply made, with thin metal walls between classrooms to save money causing classes to be loud and easily distracted. The schedule does not accommodate upper-level students well, and the arts department is failing. Some departments, such as the agriculture department, have so much surplus funding that they are wasting it on things like a new greenhouse, even though the other isn't fully utilized. Most of the special needs students in the county are sent to Byrd, resulting in an overrepresented mentally deficient student population.

I like the fact that Robert C. Byrd is a clean and new environment. The school provides us with great classes to prepare us for real life and get ready for college. Our school feels pretty safe, as we always have at least one police officer to keep an eye out. We get more freedom than other schools in our county and there are clubs for students with unique interests. Although many of the teachers work hard to supply us with a good education, I wish that some of them wouldn't push us students so hard to a point where we can't even enjoy showing up anymore from the amount of pressure and stress being put on us.
The last 3 and a half years that I have spent in the halls and on the track in Robert C. Byrd have been completely incomparable to what I could have imagined. I have grown as a person not only from the influence of the staff, but as well as my peers. The teachers and staff have made every moment unforgettable. They constantly checked on me not just as a student, but as a vulnerable teenager with many highs and lows going on at home. There have been many times when the stress of school felt too much for me, but that is typical with any high school student. I would not have considered going to any other high school. I experienced many firsts and many lasts that will fade away with time, but will be forever be valuable at the end of the day.
