I am a current Graduate from Belaire High School. I graduated May of 2019. . I danced from 2015-2019 .I honesty made allot of memorable moments for myself, as well as gained lifelong friendships .As I dancer I had the opportunity to travel .We traveled to Texas, performed for TSU.My high school was not very diverse.Majority of kids that attend my high school were African American students, so therefore we lacked learning about other cultures values, morals,and religion. We also switched principal threw-out the year, which hindered allot of our Academic grades. The teachers always tried their best to make sure students were college ready but we lacked resources , and also was limited to college tours. Although my high school experience at Belaire could've been better, it also browned my horizon to get out my comfort zone and explore the unknown.

It is a great school! The Magnet Program has helped me learn a lot and achieve more. I have been attending this school since my ninth grade year, and every year the school has gotten better. I feel safe at my school and also trust my teachers with leading me the right way. I love how most teachers interact with me and others. Most of the teachers are very supportive and try to push you for greatness. The environment is not the best but it will do.
Attending Belaire has granted me the opportunity to not only meet students who care about me but has allowed me to create bonds with my teachers that can last a long time . I have earned my title as Captain of the dance team and the support i receive from my fellow students is unbelievable. Our administration is very involved with the sports program and rarely miss a game . We also have amazing relationships with the ESS/ESL students at our school . No matter what their difference may be we will do anything to make sure they feel comfortable . I love attending Belaire, Geaux Bengals!!
