I do believe this school cover the important thing like education. Bettendorf High School also do fun random activite, example this week there a just for fun activitie we students can play basketball against the teacher there also something were we bring pop tabs in and put them in a bin with a teacher which ever has the most drinks a happy meal smoothie. I also haven’t found any teachers that isn’t willing to help you if you need it. There is also a thing called pride we’re you get a hour in the middle of the day of school to get help with teacher or just do something fun. My over all feeling of the school is great!

Bettendorf High School has been a wonderful place to call home during my high school career. I transferred to Bettendorf as a junior in high school due to being so unhappy at the school I was at. When I decided to make the decision to transfer to Bettendorf High, I was searching for a school that make me feel like I belong. Bettendorf did not let me down. To me, Bettendorf High School represents a fresh start and renewed confidence. The staff and administration provided me with a safe place for learning and growing. The students were welcoming and accepting of me. Transferring schools halfway through my high school career was a bold decision but I will never regret taking the risk on Bettendorf High School. Thank you, Bettendorf.
My old high school was a pretty great place, most of the time. I would say 4/5 teachers were very concerned with the well being of their students and strived to present their subjects in ways that would be interesting and educational. Some standout teachers that go above and beyond include Mr. Jacobs, Mr. Phillips, Mrs. McDaniel, Mr. Bonnstetter and Mrs. Cooper. However, the school is rife with small issues that prevent me from giving it the full 5 stars. As an example, many hours of the school day are wasted each year on rallies for sports games and other such frivolous activities that serve no educational value. Some teachers assign unnecessarily heavy workloads as well, especially in the math department. All in all, a nice school that wastes time here and there and is sometimes redundant but is above all else a great learning environment.
