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 a wonderful district! As a student going into 9th grade. The past 7 years in this district have been fun, engaging and productive. I only wish that there were more high schools in BSD with internship programs. Other than that, BSD is great!
I have been attending schools in the Bellevue School District since 6th grade. Overall, the district buildings have new facilities. My middle school actually got rebuild after I graduated. My middle school teachers were all very nice and understanding to students' needs. High schools in the district vary drastically in ethnicity, academics, school population, and size. It depends on the area that you live in. Overall, students determine the quality of a high school more than teachers do. Students have a lot of flexibility in their course schedules: countless classes that vary in difficulties and interests are offered. The counseling center is average, and it truly depends on your luck. Some counselors that I have gotten over the years were very discouraging about my course load, while others have shown full support in my education.
