I loved the layout of the campus here - it felt like you were in college already with multiple separate buildings to walk between for classes.
There are also a large variety of classes available. I took mostly honors level classes that were really helpful in preparing me for college. I was especially thankful for my English honors class with Mrs. McGarrity - she was so hard on us, but I was more than ready for writing papers in college!

Belleville High School has a program called New Tech, which is a technology, group based learning program that is absolutely amazing! It is still the same part of the school, but in a way it is its own little community within the school. Everybody in the program, including the teachers, are like a huge family. Everybody of all grades know each other, I never experiences bullying, and it was such a grade experience.
My daughter had an excellent academic career at Belleville East. I was nervous about her attending at first, being a very large campus, but she fit in very well, made life-time friends, and worked very hard, with much support from teachers!
