Bethesda Chevy Chase High school by far has one of the Best AP/IB public school and programs in Montgomery County. Bethesda Chevy Chase High school also has many great teachers and staff that care very much of the student future and well being. Teacher take there time to help student best understand the lesson for better understanding. Students have a choice on staying after school for program called TAP. At TAP students can get help on any subjects as there are at least one teacher for every subject. Students at Bethesda Chevy Chase High school are very competitive and ready to learn. They have many different interesting
clubs and sports like Drama Club, Robotics Club, Anime Club and much more.
The teachers are exceptional, it is truly what makes B-CC. Most are very educated on what they are teaching and care about the students. A new wing and field were recently added to the school and it is extremely spacious. There are new places for students to eat, plus they can buy food around the city of Bethesda so you would never get bored. Though B-CC lacks diversity. There are great resources but the divide is definetly prevelent. B-CC is a challenging and competitive school that has a great name for being a top school because of its academics. Though many students are not the most stable because of its competitive state.
