Oh, I do love the Bellevue School District. I have been in the hands of the BSD for almost 9 years now, and I cannot appreciate enough all the opportunities BSD have given me. There are accelerated programs to fit everyone's needs along with ample extra-curricular activities, perfect to write on one's resume! The accelerated programs though bring much competitiveness that is unhealthy for current students. Regarding mental health more seriously will be effective for student's happiness and even physical health.

Bellevue School District is extremely terrible at providing quality food. Most of the food is refrigerated from days and possibly weeks ago. Additionally, some teachers aren't very good at teaching, instead, they tend to have a lot of knowledge. BSD is, however, very good at college prep and academic preparedness. The gifted program really strengthens the academic reputation of the Bellevue School District overall.
I have been part of the Bellevue School district from K-12th grade. I have been very lucky to have my entire public school journey in Bellevue. I have always felt accepted and have never had an experience where I felt a teacher did not care about me or my learning. Every classroom i have been in has been full of diversity which was not only accepted but also celebrated.When I reached high school, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to take advanced classes. Teachers and staff were very helpful when it came to college and other future planning. I have been extremely lucky to be a part of the Bellevue School District
