I agree with the last reviewer -- the administration is not doing a good job, and has turned a deaf ear towards toxic mold in the building making students sick. In 2007, William Byrd tested positive for toxic mold -- the public was never fully informed of the toxic nature of testing. My son tested positive for Stachybotrys chartarum (black mold) after attending William Byrd. He had seizure like symptoms, worsened asthma, pneumonia, and stopped breathing during one of the twitching episodes at school. By the way, toxins (mycotoxins) produced by molds have been studied for use as a biological weapon -- that's how toxic this stuff is. Very scary. Parents should be aware that their children could also get sick (infected) from toxic mold.

Many good kids and caring teachers! Administration is a joke! Needs to be replaced! It's a three ring circus there!

I'm currently enrolled at WBHS as a junior this year, and I have to be honest-- I do not like this school as a whole. There are MANY problems with bullying. Most teachers are nice and friendly, but do very little to stop bullying. I've even been in classes where students picked at the teacher. Administration is normally pleasant to deal with (as long as you're not a trouble student). My experience is my own, but if you're considering a school in Roanoke County, you may want to look at your other choices first.

I am an alumni of WBHS (Class of 2008) and I loved the entire 4 years I was there. The teachers are amazing and make learning fun. WB is really big on the sports. In 2007, the football team won the Blue Ridge District which was a big moment in the school's history. Byrd was the best school I was ever in and I am sad that I am no longer a student there. Dr. Turner is a great principal and makes sure each student gets the education they deserve. Byrd has so many different extracirricular activities including clubs, sports, and JROTC. Every student can find someone there to become their best friend. As Dr. Turner would say 'Accept Only The Best At WBHS'.
