The small school allows students to connect well with teachers and other students. Since you engage with the same group of people everyday, students are able to form deep connections with others, leading to life-long relationships. Most of the teachers at Belvidere are great. Every teacher I had were willing to help after class and wanted to see their students succeed. Though the school is small, the sports atmosphere at Belvidere is a large focal point. The school has a lot of school spirit regarding its sports teams, even though they may not come out on top. The school is very open to allowing students form their own clubs, some of which I have seen become very successful.

I love the small town feel of Belvidere High School and the teachers here are one of a kind. All teachers are willing to help students. Since the school is small is doesn’t have as many sports as larger schools and the facilities aren’t quite as up to date, except for the library which is all new and beautiful!
Belvidere High School is a nice school. People here are generally nice, many of the teachers are kind and caring. As a transfer student, I surprisingly made friends pretty quickly. I was not excluded or ostracized by anyone in the school. However I believe that the school could try to challenge their students a bit more. I know that some of the teachers do challenge the kids a great deal, but I think that more teachers should try to do this. I understand that many students at the school have jobs, so to fix this issue perhaps have optional clubs or classes for those in school who want to push themselves to their academic limit.
