This school district is continually declining. The Superintendent needs to be replaced as soon as possible! Most of the High school teachers need to be fired!!!!! It is a very poor excuse for an educational institution!!! WHAT A JOKE!!!!! They don't pay their bills, but yet want the tax payers to pay more millage to support the school. The distirct is run by a bunch of "WANNABES"

just look at the test scores...no other review needed....the fact that we are only 21% and have declined in the last few years says it ALL!

It is very true that Byron schools are small and that the class choices are poor and the classrooms are way to crowded. However the community tried to make changes that would not have increase the common home owners taxes. Personally i enjoy the school and happy i am a student. the teachers are great most of them want you to learn and take time to teach you. A vast majority of the teachers stay after to further assist students. And on top of that they are very one on one with students and consistently ask on ways to improve there teaching to benefit the students.

I agree with most of these post. The school board don't realize how smallwe are & they want tons of money for improvements to buildings. What about improvements to the teachers. The teachers dress like high school tramps yet condem our students for the same dress. They think they need to be the kids friend instead of a roll model & a teacher. If you are not into sports forget it this school has nothing for you.

I have had 3 children attend Byron Schools from K-12 and I HATE the way the school pushes the children through even though it is clear the the child is years behind academically. When my daughter left that school she still used her fingers to multiply, she was lost when it came to all subjects. I tried to beg the teachers to stop pushing her through but their response was "she'll probably catch up soon." There is very little communication from the school as to upcoming events, progress issues, or social issues. As a parent I was not allowed to volunteer anywhere in the school once my child was in the middle school. There are not a lot of classes offered due to budget cuts, and each year it seems to get worse. Putting my children in this school district was a HUGE mistake, two of my 3 children have graduated as lost souls. I wish I knew then to look at school ratings and reviews like you are :(

Byron schools are awful!! There are a few really good teachers, but that isn't enough to make me send my kids there. Principle leadership is really bad from the elementary to the high school. Teachers stick together and gang up on the kids. The special ed program is a joke!! out of the 3 case managers available only one does their job, good luck getting her! After 4 years of elementary I pulled my child out to home school and then pulled my high schooler out too. This school needs help.

Byron does have a girls soccer team now and there are many ways for both girls and guys to get involved in sports and other groups.

I was a student at the school from 10th grade-graduation. I'd agree with the comments made about the school's counselor. After graduating I've come to realize what a good counselor does, she didn't do anything for my future now that I think of it. As for the soccer team the school district in general is too small to have a soccer team. A girl soccer team was tried and failed because there just isn't enough interest/athletes to have such a program. Byron is a football school and supports FFA. Overall the school lacks what bigger schools have and is kind of limited. Overall the teachers were great, most coaches were great and the experience overall was good. I liked it but would probably be in a better situation now if I stayed at the previous/larger school district. My classes were overcrowded and that will get worse as student numbers increase.

It's a small school so much of the staff has to double up on classes. The School councelor is very poor at helping students with scholarships (when asked we were basically told to reasearch ourselves). Limited Sports teams. Byron is a football school and they have decided to completely fase out the male soccer team. After having my children attend this school k-12 I would recomend seeking other educational opportunities in your area.

A small school which means good student/teacher interaction. Good leadership from the administration. Extracurricular activities which include a full spectrum of typical sports along with FFA, NHA and a few other clubs. Extracurricular is light for girls that are not interested in sports or FFA. Overall, a very good school.
