Bettendorf is an overall outstanding school district. Bettendorf has provided me many great teachers that go above and beyond to help all students. Bettendorf high school also has a great number of faculty members that provide everything the students may need. Bettendorf also is a very nice school and provides many outstanding facilities including a weight room, a football field, an auditorium, and many more facilities are provided. Students are also in a safe environment given that a school police officer and security guard are on the campus as well. Bettendorf is an overall wonderful community!

Bettendorf High School prepares us for our future and has a positive environment. I just transferred to Bettendorf this year and I already love it. As a Senior, I regret not starting at Bettendorf as a Freshman. If you start at Bettendorf as a Freshman, you get the full experience that will turn you into an accepting, understanding, and positive person with an open mind about everything and everyone. Bettendorf does not tolerate bullying and it has a safe environment. I feel like I can go and talk to anyone about anything. They have an awesome Future Ready Coach that helps you with your future.
The people at Bettendorf High School are amazing, as I often find myself admiring. The students are incredibly helpful to one another and it is amazing to watch them socialize with one another. The overall community within the school is phenomenal. I wish the high school were more diverse though and I believe that some of the rules put into place are unnecessary, including the ban of drinks in the school and no earbuds in the hallway. Overall, I love the high school and I believe we have some of the best students, teachers, athletes and coaches in the building!
