Belle Plaine Public School District Reviews

Belle Plaine schools tend towards the words close-minded. Some of the faculty are amazing, helpful, and supportive, others are the opposite. If you value the arts, beware they are underappreciated here, but with that being said, They also excel above and beyond average. The acting program goes to state almost yearly. Their sports are loved and for the most part good. Not many above-average opportunities or help academically.

Belle Plaine Public School District has done much to help my education but also has lacked in teaching me concepts that can be used and applied to my life as a college student and beyond. As a current highly excelling college student now, I felt very underdeveloped in my academic knowledge after leaving this school. I felt that though the teachers were nice, there was not enough options for excelling and doing CIS or AP courses. I wish that this district would have put more emphasis on the arts rather than sports.
I have been part of Belle Plaine Public Schools since kindergarten. K-8th grade were fairly good but, getting into high school, there aren't enough diverse CIS or AP class opportunities for 10-12th grade. It seems the money doesn’t always go to the right place; for example money goes toward upgrading the softball fields out by the middle school rather than updating the wood shop, educational kitchens, agriculture shop and classroom. To me, these classes are the ones that can introduce students to possible future career goals and, when the administration isn’t considering the future of the students first, they should rethink their decisions. Sports and the arts are very important to a lot of the students. Most of the teachers are able to teach well and connect with their students.
