I attended 4th thru 6th grade at Byrd School 55 years ago and have nothing but good memories except a playground fight when another kid stepped on my white suede shoes.

Byrd Elementary is a wonderful school with great teachers. Most of the teachers there care about each and every student. They put in the extra effort to ensure each child succeeds. I would not have my child attend any other school.

byrd is a very good school, my daughter has adhd and i believe that if not for certain teachers at this school my child would have had a harder time than she did. the teachers and staff really care about the students and that makes a big difference.

Byrd elementary does not help their students learn when they need the help. I have had problems with my children understanding the work due to the teachers not helping them out when they really need it. They hide behind the SOL's and keep using the excuse that they don't have the budget to give the children that need the extra help, by coming up with a solution to this, they could if they really cared. Where exactly does all the money go that is put into the PTA. School's should care more about their student's than they do and the efforts in teaching should improve.

Byrd is a wonderful local school that is improving all the time. Due to recent budget cuts, this school is doing miricles with the resources they have. A major portion of the student body are on some sort of free/reduced lunch program, however they are reminded everyday that they are important and have the power to change the world. My hat goes off to the principal Beth Taylor for all the changes she has brought about in her first year at Byrd. The only thing this school needs to be the best in the state of alabama, is more tax dollars sent their way and more parent involvement.
