Byron Center High School Ratings & Reviews

I agree with several of the other posts. My kids enjoyed school until they moved here. Very hard to fit in if you have not lived in Byron Center all of your life. There is still a focus on sports over academics - it was the first thing mentioned at an orientation. The curriculum is definitely lacking at the high school in the area of engineering and computer science. I would like to see them make more of an effort welcoming new families, especially with the growth in this area. I will say that my child has had positive things to say about the teachers.

Byron kids are not the nicest, no. They're not always accepting, of course not. But it isn't worse than any other public school. Also, Byron still puts sports high up in the food chain. If you don't play sports at Byron, you don't really matter. Just show up on count day and everyone will pretend you matter for a day, but remember; they're only in it for the money. Oh, and all of these required classes? I understand math and social studies and English, but why gym? I have struggled through my high school schedule because every year is filled with required classes. I want to take classes that prepare me for my future in college and my future job. I can't take Psychology and Sociology and English (College Prep) or more AP classes because I've been busting my behind to fit these needed classes into my schedule (PE, health, art). Yes, the teachers here are great at teaching. Teachers always find a way to help you out. I think if Byron focused on college prep courses and their AP program more, the academics program would skyrocket here. You don't always have to live traditionally, Byron. Take a chance. Change. Prepare your students for college.

"Reading through previous comments, I would suggest much has changed in the past few years. Parents are very involved and most kids are so respectful. Sports programs are not higher on the food chain than academics. My kids joined the district about 4 years ago, and none have had problems fitting in. It is a fairly conservative area, but I wouldn't say ""religious"". I would say morals abound, and that is a good thing. Teachers and Administrators will not put up with bad behavior for the most part, and that is a good thing. If your child doesn't need a babysitter and is there to be prepped for college, this is a great school system. Expect to be involved as a parent."

I graduated from BCHS and went off to the University of Michigan (UM), and I did not feel prepared at all compared to my peers at UM. Looking back, BCHS put far too much emphasis on sports and not nearly enough on science, math, and worthwhile literature. News flash, BCHS: none of your students are going to go off into the world and be professional athletes. They might go off and become scientists, doctors, and business people, however. Put the emphasis where it belongs in your curriculum.

"I DO NOT agree with the person who posted on september 22, 2009. That is a horrable review of Byron Center High School. It is a wonderful place. I know because I transferred in, and was the ""new kid"". All the other schools that I had attended isolated me in this position. At Byron, I found that many poeple approached me and said hello. I found lifelong friends there. Yes, there is alot of ""cliques"" in Byron Center High School, but Kentwood High and Wyoming High are ALOT WORSE. Also, Byron Center is NOT ""conservative"". I didn't feel pressured with religion or unreasonable rules and regulations. I currently go to a school in Sugar Land, Texas, and it has much more conservative/strict rules in place. I highly recommend this school."
