Belle Plaine High School Reviews

The teachers at Belle Plaine High School are very patient with slower-learners and always work hard to help the students with their work and grades. The current principal is great at communicating with the students and most students get along very well with him. The building itself is great after the revisions and additions a few years ago. Some things that need some fixing are how they deal with bullying reports and how quickly information is given out to students.

Belle Plaine is a very close-knit community and everyone is friendly. New students are welcomed warmly and the school work is challenging, but the exceptional teachers are great and will always be there to help, both with school stuff and problems outside of school.
Overall this school was not the best. Yes, the academics are good and they really teach you a lot. Although, that was good the bad behavior was a huge distraction. When you have a principle that doesn't take care of the behavior then it gets really hard to focus on school.
