Bellingham High School Reviews

Bellingham High School was certainly an... interesting school to attend. I can say that for sure we lack school spirit. What we lack in school spirit however, we make up for in creativity! And by creativity I mean having to constantly clean the bathrooms of graffiti. Teachers it's really a toss up, some I've found to be amazing and go above and beyond for their students, and some do not care at all if their students pass or fail, and are only there for a paycheck. I would say however that Bellingham has a very strong History department, packed with amazing teachers that have for sure had an impact on my high school career. The Arts department, although limited, is full of great teachers as well that are doing the best that they can with what they have. The English department is pretty good, and the Math department is I would say the weakest, however I have had a couple of exceptional teachers. Although my overall review seems negative, it's not different from any other high school.

I have gone to this school for my whole high school career and always thought it was just okay. The school is probably like many others, but leaves much to be desired in multiple areas. Some of the teachers are spectacular, while others do not teach in a way that is effective and that is understandable to the students. The administration is also just alright and does not communicate effectively with teachers or students. Communication I find is an area the school, and district, needs to work on.
I just graduated from Bellingham and the experience was decent. There were some really awesome teachers and then some really bad ones. The history and English department were actually awesome. There were a few bad teachers, but overall the education is probably average. Athletics suck, no one ever wins.
