Belle Chasse High School is honestly the best place to send your children because of how kind and considerate the staff is. They are always making sure the students are involved with something and hold different events through out the year pertaining to what month it is. For example, for National Hispanic month they try their best to educate the student body about Hispanic culture and during Cancer awareness month they raise awareness by appealing to the student body for donations to support their peers and the local community. Overall, Belle Chasse High School is respected by not only the State of Louisiana, but by the Plaqumines Parish School Board and the Plaqumnes Parish Government!

Providing an exemplary education, Belle Chasse takes accountability on making sure that comprehension is occuring. On the other hand, the school can definitely do better at making sure that students of all kind are held to the same standards and rules. This school has a small reputation for bias going on inside of the school. Students are restricted more compared to other schools, but this is a result of the school board and not the administrators of Belle Chasse High. Nonetheless, Belle Chasse High School provides an average high school experience.
Belle Chasse high school is a great school, there are some things i would change about it but overall my experience has gotten better through my four years. I delt with bullying in my first two years but when i decided to speak out about it, the problem resolved. Students do there best to include you in activities when they see you on the side lines, i have met some meaningful people. So far i have had some great teachers that taught me valuable lessons in life, my favorite teachers are the art teachers, they are all so talented and have bright happy personalities. Our principle is always around and active in the things that happen in the school, she is very kind and greets you. The dress code is a uniform that consists of khakis and a polo shirt with the school emblem along with a belt. There are few times that the staff will be lean-ant about the dress code but its all for good reason.
