Bellevue High School Reviews

All Categories
At Bellevue High School, the teachers all had their own teaching style. Some classes had an outgoing atmosphere, one where students needed to participate and others where the teacher lectured, allowed questions, then gave independent help to those who raised their hand. Each teacher had a individual personality that could be respected and even admired. One of the math teachers was a witty man who would add humor to help students become interested in the math. Another teacher who taught English would lecture, but would spend more time focusing on students individually with one on one time. Grading was always consistent with each teacher because the teacher would lay out the grading rules before the academic year started.

One specific teacher would always stay after school hours to talk to students if they wanted to. He would talk to them about real life problems that they might be facing, and his advice was always practical. This teacher was vulnerable and real to his students, which I, for one, will always be thankful for because he helped me while I was first learning to endure the autoimmune disease that I have.
Review Bellevue High School
Bellevue High has great academics, great sports, and great clubs and teachers. However, some people are very spoiled and can be judgmental, which can be a problem. Overall a great school, with many ways to challenge yourself and interesting/unique electives for everyone.
Bellevue high is a great school, if you've been in the school district since birth. For people moving here, it's hard to fit in with groups, especially with "those girls". Everyone is expected to conform. If you don't have enough money to buy a house in the Bellevue high boundaries, don't. Go to one of the other high school in the district. they are equally good, if not better, and housing is more affordable.
