At Belle Plaine High School, my education was a decent standard with a GPA of 3.45 and receiving an letter in academics. I am in the top 10 of my class, ranking number 8 out of 37.
I like how our school has teachers that help the students with academic problems and make them understand, and that they're preparing us for our future with college preparations and careers.
I would like to see the school hold more clubs/activities and sports that other schools hold; be more diverse. I'd also like to see changes to how the school lunch is prepared. Instead of it being frozen, it should be freshly cooked and prepared to be healthy.
Belle Plaine School district is a very small knit community and with that comes the goods and bads. I liked my small class size, and how the school treated the students. They could have done a better job with the computers and blocking everything. It made it extremely hard to do research projects.
