Belvidere High School Reviews

One of the best parts of going to a small school like BHS is the personal feeling that you get. It is easy to discuss questions with teachers, everyone knows each other, and students are very much involved in the operating of the school. Students run many of the events, and through clubs such as Student Advocates, or even as an individual, the administrators and teachers will listen to any concerns or ideas and work with you to make changes. Although we may not have the latest tech or textbooks, (most of) the teachers are very knowledgeable and helpful in class. I am very grateful that I got to attend BHS, as opposed to a big high school where you are "just another number".

Belvidere is a cute, small knit community with a lot of pride! When I first moved to the area I was overwhelmed with its rural area and small school. The schools culture grew on me and I got to appreciate the beauty of the unity the students and faculty shared!
During my four years at Belvidere high I've had the time of my life. The school spirit at Belvidere is unlike any other school. Almost the whole student body will attend every sporting event to show support for their school. Belvidere is also a very small high school with only 500 students in total. Due to this, our education is very much like a private schools, lots of one on one time. In addition to that, our teachers are the kindest and warmest people around.
