Byron Center Charter School Ratings & Reviews
The principal and all of the teachers are amazing! They really care about the kids and want to make sure the succeed!
We only attended for a year. We LOVED the teachers. Did NOT care for the school board decisions; seemed to Lack concern for our kids and make decisions based on personal feelings. Was not real excited about admin and how they chose disciplines w/the kids. One of our kids class was labeled as the difficult class. For talking during class each day, they would have to sit in silence during their lunch hour the next day. This went on for over 4 months. Take a class that had 18 boys with 14 add and take away their only time to move around. And now wonder why they are not being quiet through out their day! On a positive note: I've heard many good things now since they have a new principal this year. Bringing in extra curricular activities etc. If it were not for our family location changes, we would definitely give them another chance.
My child attended Byron Center Charter and I was not satisfied with how it turned out. The first couple years went fine but as of recently (2013-2014) a large majority of the teachers have become obsessed with power, rather then trying to teach and help students. I feel as though they are more worried about their popularity standings than they are in our childrens education. It saddens me but it seems to be this way. Unfortunately, I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone because I believe they are headed in a bad direction that isn't in favor of helping the future students. Unless they make major improvements, I do not suggest enrolling your student here.
The Kindergarten teacher and assistant are outstanding. They show personal interest, and really care about each child's development. Principal is very nice, and very visible. Student to teacher ratio is outstanding.
"We brought our kids here after a few years of Public School issues of wanting a ""Cookie Cutter"" student. Overcrowded school didn't allow the teacher to give each child individual attention they need. Before coming to BCC my son was bullied by both students and teachers. He kept coming home depressed thinking he wasn't smart or was a ""naughty"" boy. And this was in lower level grade school. After transferring to BCC he absolutely loves school and has many friends! We have been VERY pleased with BCC as most of the teachers truly care and desire for each child to succeed to the best of their ability. They take the extra step toward helping the parent/child achieve that level. There are only 1 or 2 teachers there that I feel have a difficult time adjusting their teaching to vary depending upon the child's learning style but overall it is a GREAT school. They are now growing and each year will be adding a new class so their soon will be a choice of teachers for each grade level. I highly recommend this school!"
