Bellevue East High was a memorable high school. The school has amazing faculty that truly care for the students personably. Although the sports are not top ranked in our state, you will not find another high school in the state with the culture like the one at East. They make sure you are prepped for college and provide many scholarship opportunities. Recently, I have heard of a new principle taking over and making some big changes to the school for the students. It will only get better from there!

For being a student at Bellevue east high school and becoming a senior, I can proudly say that I have enjoyed my experience in working with such great teachers and an amazing involvement in activities. This school is a very reputable place for ensuring that each student finds their way in fitting in and feeling like they belong at the high school they attend. Most teachers are pretty workable and are so helpful in making sure students understand the material that they are being taught to learn. The overall kindness and dedication that Bellevue East High school derives in the community as a whole makes it all the more welcoming for anybody.
It's the second high school in this state I have attended and I greatly prefer it to my old school. Yes, there are problems, but there are so many more opprotunities, classes. and clubs than other schools. There are a bunch of fights and fight threats often but overall, its not a bad school. Plus the music department, mainly the vocal department I am apart of, is very welcoming and active. Also you actually learn stuff in the classes!
