BHHS is an ideal school for students that are self-motivated and aspire to educational excellence. It also has great programs for students with educational impediments. Throughout the years, BHHS has consistently improved and expanded its facilities -- which are now first in class. If there is any downside to BHHS it is that students in the "middle" can get overlooked.

Byram Hills is like a little fish tank of students that have known one another very often since preschool, so moving in late in the game, as my family did, is difficult. It can seem that the area s wealth is an important part of life at the school. I found that my solace, and one of the school s few social advantages, was its being within a reasonable distance to New York City. The teachers are generally of a high quality and usually willing to provide help to the extent that you need it. This school will prepare you to get into college, though not necessarily to succeed once you get there. Everything you do, from AP classes to extra-curriculars, is geared towards making you a competitive college applicant, which you will no doubt become so long as you put in the slightest of effort.

this is a one and only school....that is absolutly fantastic.....my daughter has not always been the smartest girl...but byram has pushed her to her full capacity that now she is attending NYU and studying law...law is what she discovered while taking an elective with a fabulous teacher MR. ALLEN....byram has many other teachers that are great and that will take your kid into the real world while holding hands

I'm an Alum of BHHS. Though a great college-prep school, Byram Hills is a very homogeneous school with a very un-exciting school culture. Students do go to college, and they are quite academically focused, but more for the point of getting into an ivy or a tier one college. There's very little spirit/heart in the student body.
