All the teachers were noobs and wold beat me up and takes my lunch money
I like this school and all, but sometimes it's just all about competition in this school. We have honor rolls that are posted up in the hallway for everyone to see, which really bothers me, because it is embarrassing to some people to have their names under just honor roll while others are on HIGH honor roll. The teachers here are nice enough, but me being in the 7th grade, stay up really late to finish the homework they give us! I love to sing, dance, and play, but I can't do all of that if the homework keeps getting higher and higher!
I can understand why this is a Blue Ribbon School, but the curriculum is ridiculous. My 11 year old is up till 10:15pm doing HW on most nights. He starts at 3pm, and only stops for a short dinner break. Is this what 6th grade is about? He no longer has any time for sports activities after school.
i had an absolutely miserable experience when i attended this school. the administration is a complete joke, and they don't care about anybody but themselves and winning awards. the teachers range from terrible to amazing. i had my fair share of both. the parents are very involved. the school is safe, but disipline is a joke. the school has a good band, but i can't exactly say the same about the chorus. overally, for all the hype, byram hills just isn't that amazing. it's ridiculously competitive, agressive, and the moment you need extra help, you are usually in trouble.
