Belding High School Reviews

Belding High School is where I feel comfortable. From the staff to the students, if you respect others you will be respected back. I consider it a safe place, as well as many others. It accommodates to almost everyone from athletics to arts to hobbies. We have many clubs that benefit the school body. I think an important quality we have is people care. Since it is a small school we are likely to know most of the people we see everyday. We are accepting of others and the environment is influenced by the upperclassmen. We started a student-led group called “Knight Support” (because our mascot was changed from Redskins to Black Knights) thag expressed our concerns with our principle and super-intendent.

Belding High is a small, tight knit school that is filled with teachers and students that are looking for successful, happy futures. Students are given as many opportunities as needed in order to personally succeed. Not only are the academics very fine tuned, the school spirit runs strong as most students are very encouraging of their fellow students as they pursue sports, or any of our multiple arts programs.
For a small town, Belding is pretty great. It may not have as many programs as a larger school in a larger area, but what it lacks in that area it makes up for with it's teaching and administrative staff. The staff at Belding High School are some of the most genuine and caring people that want the best for their students. Programs like band or drama, football or basketball, are some of the most memorable and impactful parts of the school. All in all, Belding is a place where life long memories and relationships are made.
