Bellarmine College Preparatory Reviews

This school will prepare you for college. It is also very competitive in sports, robotics, math clubs, etc. It is fairly diverse with some Asians, Whites, Latinos, but very few Blacks. The food is delicious, especially the curly fries. The teachers are excellent at this school and care very much about your future. There are over 50 clubs that you can do at Bellarmine and you can create one yourself if you ask the admin. This school is very safe and I have not experienced any unsafe activity. There are nutritionists and a big gym that you can work out during the free period. The sports teams are very competitive and successful. Overall, you can create a good brotherhood at this school.

Attending Bellarmine was one of the greatest experiences of my life. It has excellent teachers, fantastic athletics, a wonderful campus--all the things that you'd expect of a school of its caliber. But what makes Bellarmine really special--what makes it truly unique from other high schools--is the profoundly deep and enduring sense of brotherhood you develop while attending. I know for a fact that because I went to Bellarmine, I've learned incredibly valuable lessons from some of the best educators the country has to offer, I've taken part in some of the most exhilarating sports experiences I'll ever have, and I've been prepared for college at a level that's significantly beyond that of my current classmates. But more than that, I know I've made lifelong friends with whom I can spend time with and enjoy for decades to come. As always, Go Bells.
The campus is very open, big and college-like. While some of the teachers choose favorites and go off the curriculum by giving way to much homework, overall, most teachers love what they are doing and are great at teaching their subject. Additionally, Bellarmine has a lot of clubs, sports and after school programs. There is also a lot of diversity among different types of cultures and backgrounds (but it is an all boys school) and will never silence anyone for there opinions on an issue, but will rather, ask you to discuss it and try to defend it with others
