Our football team is absolutely atrocious, however the rest of our athletics are surprisingly good. The math department is very poor, but science and English departments are top of the line on my opinion. Teachers are either fantastic or horrible, and there’s no real medium unfortunately. The administration are fair with punishment, but fail to actually figure out when people are doing something wrong, and simple things usually get past them. Again, they are fair but not exactly the most enjoyable to be around. They try to act friendly, however come off as angry and sometimes rude. The counselors are absolutely phenomenal, and are always there to help and are completely unbiased. Overall 4 out of 5. It’s been a good experience, however I’m in 12th grade, and am VERY ready to graduate, and never step foot in this school again!

There are many spots to feel like you fit in with Bella Vista students. Students can feel safe at Bella Vista. The academic work is stressful but most of the teachers make the work easier to work with. However, the staff of the district and the school are a bit difficult to work with. It is hard to get certain classes a student may want to take sometimes. The band and color guard are very good! Vigorous work for AP students especially--though they're having fun and know what they signed up for.
GO BRONCOS! I just graduated from Bella Vista, and I have to say that the school has offered an excellent four year experience. The teachers are amazing, the courses are very educational and offer opportunities to prove oneself, and there is excellent college prep. I hope to take what I learned from here and use it to apply myself in college.
