Overall it was like any other highschool I suppose. Academically speaking the AP courses were challenging, as to be expected, and the work was fulfilling. However, academics or other extracurriculars were often underfunded and overshadowed by sports (as is common in the south). Often times one could hear the band students complaining that their instruments were not good, or were getting worn out, while just a few years prior the school shilled out thousands to pay for a new sports center and electronic bill board to display it's sponsors. Parent involvement was very high, mostly because children of the parents who were boosters essentially received special treatment. If you were an athlete, like my older sister was, you could count on getting playing time if your parents donated money or volunteered alot. The food in the cafeteria was good, especially with the different lines to pick from in the cafe. My favorites were nachos and popcorn chicken days, but I loved the banana muffins.

My time in Belton High School was an overall pleasant time due to the extracurricular activities and the few friends I have there. The education was fine in content but there have been difficulties with faculty that have persisted over the years. One of the best aspects of the entire school is their broad range of clubs and scholar groups that enable a heightened level of learning in certain areas. For example, I myself have participated in Belton Highschool Robotics over the years and have enjoyed myself immensely. I have learned not only more about Mechanical Engineering, but how to be a leader and inspire others to be the best they can be.

Overall, I would rate my experience as positive in regards to the people and the opportunities the school afforded me, but negative for all the annoyances and unnecessary hindrances the school often implemented for no reason.
When I first started as a Freshman I wasn’t doing too good. However, my Sophomore Year I started AVID and it taught me to appreciate the people around me and my education. My teacher became like family to me. She made me want to be a better student and person. I wanted to excel in my education. I learned that I had a passion for English because of my Sophomore English Teacher and who shared my love for books. I learned that I wasn’t the best at Math but my Math teacher always pushed me to do better and always answered when I needed help. Her encouragement and interest in my education made me look forward for Math class. My most impactful year for me was my Senior Year. All your years of hard work start to show. That year I remember teachers making sure their students were getting their work done so they’d be able to graduate. I remember all the funny activities we got to do as a graduating class and I will have those memories for ever. From Prom to Splash Day to Graduation.
