    Bartlett Yancey High School is by far one of the most vile and repulsing school i have been to. as an academic teacher i was given the opportunity to observe the conduct of not only the teachers but the student body as well. I find it somewhat pitiful the lack of dedication of the teachers. They lack dedication and willpower. How can students learn in such an enviroment when all the teachers care about is a paycheck?

    My school generally meets good standards with teachers but as a current college student I can say that it has in no way prepared me for it. Also the leadership leaves much to be desired.

    As a former student I can't think of any reason a person would soundly send their child to BYHS. I graduated in 2004 and have returned several times to visit former teachers. The halls still reak of urine and the majority of the office staff are still impolite. I was an office assistant both semesters of my senior year and I know how unprofessional they really are. There are a few teachers that actually care about the student's success. Most are there to read from the book and draw a paycheck. The academic programs available when I was there were few and far between but I'm glad to see a slight increase in those in the recent past. BYHS was less than a great school the entire time I was there. The sole reason I enjoyed BYHS academically was because of the rare handful of teachers who cared to actually teach.

    I have seen the principal once during open house and was not introduced. As a parent with three children in Caswell County I found this uncomfortable and disappointing. I truly hope this can be rectified at some point. I surely would like it to be.

    BY is a great school for anyone. The staff and students there are great. With teachers there like Mrs.Davis and coach Medors anyone there could do well in life if they put their effort into it.

    The school places a large emphasis on clothing and other distractive garments in order to keep the attention where it needs to be. The teachers are highly dedicated to helping students and provide a large amount of assitance for every child that is ready and willing to learn! THe school seems to be clean. Overall I think Bartlett Yancey High School is a great school and prepared me for college. Although they dont offer as many AP credits as other high schools they still over a few. The teachers are wonderful! We must remember that learning is only partly the schools job and that true learning comes from the childs desire for improving their education!

    This school is so cheap that the kids have to pay fees in order to attend classes. The senior class has about $300 for their fees to graduate. And this is supposed to be a public school. The halls smell like urine everytime I have to go to campus. This year they have instituted a dress code that is so ridiculous that they will have more children out of class and in In School Suspension. Instead of seeking out drug dealers potentially violent students or situations or providing an adequate education these administrators will be seeking out where you're pierced what color your hair or shoestrings are and what kind of t-shirt you're wearing. It not only a waste of tax dollars to have these people in their positions but it is absolutely stupid to let these people put forth the children of tomorrow with such petty rules. I think they should be more focused on getting funding for books and equipment than what my child is wearing.
