This is a very good place to open your wings, so to speak. I came in my freshman year nervous and awkward. I soon made friends, who I never met before. And this forced me to quickly get used to the school, I came from a school of about 50 kids to a school of about 2,500 kids. I joined clubs and other activities and made friends in there as well. This is a place to make friends and memories and there is definitely enough clubs and activities for just about everyone!

The teachers at Belleville West High School are always reaching out to their students making sure they are not struggling to understand the material. If students start to feel the need to get extra help, they will have many choices for the student to succeed in their work. Not only do the teachers at Belleville West care about their students succeeding in their class but also in life. Many, if not all, teachers at Belleville west build strong relationships with their students creating a bond that makes the students feel welcome. The teachers and other faculty make it known that you can go to them for anything. Throughout my time at West I have felt that my teachers truly care about me and want to help in any way they can. There is a calming feeling to knowing your teachers support you and have faith in your work.
During the quarantine the teachers have made sure that we are well and also made it known that they will try to help us even while we can not be talking face to face.
I love Belleville West! There is truly something for everyone. There as so many clubs & activities to participate in. The faculty is devoted to their jobs & will always go out of their way to help students. You can tell they truly care about their students. The high school is also full of school spirit! The athletics & all other teams are very successful with what they do & all teams support each other. I would not choose to go to any other high school.
