Such a wonderful school! Plenty of opportunity for children to grow academically and socially. Teachers are outgoing and give all that they can!

As with any school you can not control the kids that go there, however this school does not have control of the "bad" kids. I hate the word "bully" but this school has made me understand what most people are talking about. My child is not perfect by any means but on a daily basis we, as parents, here our child complain about bad things including fighting, racist name calling, and that my child's teacher is unable to handle the good kids because of how many bad kids there are. We will be transferring at the end of the year. Worst experience so far at any school.

Byrne is a wonder school! Schools are under immense pressure and don't receive the funding they need, but the principal and teachers are working together along with us as parents to meet these challenges.

Byrne is a great school. Our youngest child is starting next year and our middle child just completed sixth grade last year at Byrne. Schools deal with many complex and tough issues today and the bottom line the teachers and principal are doing a great job with many things they don't have control over. The parent community is one the best in Burnsville.

The teachers talk to the students disrespectfully. When trying to resolve the situations, the teachers become defensive,refuse to speak to the parent and the principal doesn't intervene appropriately. This has happened several times since march 2010 enrollment, which has forced me to initiate a transfer.

The staff is excellent, especially the principal and the special education. My son's fourth grade teach was wonderful, too.

Wm Byrne is a safe and well run elementary school; many great teachers, declining enrollment, & a more diverse student pop.
