Though a lot of us in the school complain about the weekly advisories about bullying. This school does take action. If you walk around, there are posters of bully awareness, who to call, and steps on how to deal with it. I have to give the most props to the teachers in all honesty. Whenever anything seems like bullying, they are on the case as soon as they see it(I would know, since a lot of my friends like to mess with each other)
Teachers and staff are quick to blame students and not listen to them. Dishing out lunch detentions is part of the norm here. I'm not impress with this school and another school in the ISD family. The ISD is all about the teachers and staff and not really about the students.
I am new to the School, and went to the registrar's office to enroll my girl for 14-2015 year. She had some athletic background but in general we needed advice and guidance on what to do to have her consider the Athletic program. Also, she is an international student, which makes our questions more 'rich' and complex. We were very well supported by the staff, and not a day has passed without them responding my emails or keeping me copied on important meetings even before the new year starts. They do a great job at including new parents and students, making you feel part of the team. Kudos to Byron Nelson!
This school does not hold kids accountable.. They can turn in homework weeks late for a passing grade, they can RE take a test for higher score.. Nobody fails... This does not prepare kids for real life, or college. Need to change there grading policy. We RE changing districts.
As a former student, I loved my time at Byron. With all the extra curricular activities that were offered, it was nearly impossible to not be included in something. The staff (for the most part) were great, as were (again, most of) the administration. There were some hiccups in dealing with discipline, but the school itself was overall a great experience that really helped to prepare me for what was to come.
