  • I for one could not have enough good things to say about Byrd High School. Just like in everything else in life, it is impossible to please everyone. Mr. Badgley does a quality job, and does as much as he can. He has over 2000 students, and only has so much time. If you want to find fault with that, go complain to the school board and the State of Louisiana for the funding, or lack there of, and support staff at Louisiana's largest high school. Byrd has a long list of accomplishment, none of which speak more highly than having the largest alumni association in the nation by far. The alumni of Byrd High School is like no other. Sticking together and supporting their school for life. I had the best education that one could imagine at a public school in the State of Louisiana. I was more than equipped for college, unlike most area high schools. It is also a known fact that standardized test schools at Byrd are better than that of Caddo Magnet High when only counting the magnet program.

  • As a student that attends C.E. Byrd now, I love this school and the teachers that we have. They are nice and they care about our grades and the students are great too!

  • We moved to Shreveport from another location in the US and though we were told "a lot of money" is at this school so it is "top notch," I guess the "money" that's there only goes to ensure a good education and proper treatment of those students whose parents "show them the money!" My straight-A, gifted, student had an awful time adjusting for many reasons, some due to the fault of the school and some not. When we requested a meeting with the Principal, Gerry Badgley, we were told by his secretary (AND I QUOTE) "HE will DECIDE if HE needs to meet with you and we will call you back." We ended up going to the school board in order to move my child to Magnet where he LOVES school, is back to his "old self" making great grades and hanging out with a wonderful group of kids and being educated by some of the best teachers in the State. In case you are wondering, no, I'm not the same person who wrote a similar story on 1/7/08. I'd sure like to talk to them because I also know of another student (a female) who encountered the same things as I'm describing and her parents had to go to the School Board to get her out of Byrd, too. The only complaint I have about teachers is based solely on a limited amount of experience. There was a chemistry teacher who literally passed out the book and told students to "Read it." There was ZERO teaching. If he "liked" the student the student either made an 'A' or a 'B.' If not, they made a 'C' or below. Funny, I know this teacher used to work at a "high quality" school in the area and as it was told to me by someone "high up in the ranks" "Yes, and he no longer works here." I'm sure this school is fine for some. But I would not consider it "quality" or "E---quality" for all. And by the way, I don't mean that racially. We're caucasian!

  • Personally as a parent of a student that formerly attended C.E. Byrd, I wasn't satisfied with the results that my child was bringing back home and his grades really didn't get better until I pulled him out and sent him to Caddo Magnet High School.
