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!

Our school is very into sports, extracurricular activities and very much into the bulldog, black and gold spirit, but Bettendorf High School lacks in some things that are pretty important. We are very blessed with supplies and good facilities, but we don't have the most important thing that's needed for a high school, safety. Even though we have a security guard, our school has never felt like a safe place to anyone. Within one year we had a stabbing and a lock down lasting for hours for a school shooting, luckily no shots ended up being fired but Bettendorf students couldn't of felt more vulnerable. Alongside these, we have our everyday life threatening situations, bullies. Bullying happens a lot here, and teachers don't seem to do much about it. Trust me, Bettendorf can win any school spirit or football game anyway, but a trophy for safest school is something we'll never get.
I like the level of academic standards provided at Bettendorf high school, however I think the counselors are poor and unhelpful. Administration is also hypocritical and inconsistent with punishments.
