I love the environment here at Belvidere North! Almost all of the teachers are very willing to help you with everything you need! Plus they make sure students have balance within their schoolwork and academics, which is super awesome with me being a two-sport varsity athlete. The clubs are also amazing! My favorite is Best Buddies, which is an international organization that connects regular students with students with disabilities at their school.
I like the performing arts programs. So many opportunities for people who enjoy the Performing Arts! I haven't done sports myself, but the programs are very nice. Games are fun and engaging!
