Overall, the school and its environment and atmosphere was pretty basic. Very average. The students would go on about their day and stay out the way, but other times students would act out for the most unnecessary reasons. But luckily, the faculty and staff were very prepared and cautious about handling situations that have occurred. Many members of the faculty and staff genuinely cared about our well-being, and out excellence in the class, while others showed little to no interest. My school was also very diverse, which was definitely a plus in our environment.

I greatly enjoyed the teacher interaction had at Belleville High School. If you have teachers that truly have your best interests at heart, they will guide you towards a wonderful experience in high school and help you in ways you cannot even imagine. There are many clubs to foster your interest in, whether it be music, art, or the sciences. I wish we had more clubs focused in academia, instead of just the top 5% getting honor cords. If you are motivated and care about your academic excellence, Belleville High School will help you achieve that and grow as a person.
As a high school student here for over four years, I have learned a lot and have met a lot of great people; however, I have also met my fair share of not so good people. Some kids here really value their education, but some also don't care much about it at all. The administration really tries to accommodate everyone, especially in high school.
