Bellevue School District Reviews

All Categories
The Bellevue School District is a very modernized school environment with very high standards of education and faculties to make that happen. There is very passionate teachers that truly cares in the student learning. Education in general for entire district seems to be a very strong point. Many students in this district is taking AP courses and there is wide arrangements of courses to choose from. Although, it is a strong academic area there is strange lack of Administration and general lack of enforcement. There is frequent abuse of absence and tardy that doesn't seem to matter all to much. The administration doesn't seem to enforce detentions or punishments too often and this is a obvious trend that even the teachers are noticing.
Review Bellevue School District
Bellevue School District is an incredible school district with some of the best teachers and facilities in the region. While many students come from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, BSD is very accommodating to all students who strive to succeed, regardless of their challenges outside of school. Many schools have a reputation that follows them but as a student who succeeded at both Odle Middle School, and Sammamish Senior high, both schools with relatively lackluster reputations, i can attest to the quality of education that I revived in the years I've spent in this system.
Coming from Lake Washington School District, I am thoroughly impressed with Bellevue School District. To start off, Lake Washington School District supplies computers for their students just like Bellevue School District. However, LWSD's laptops are much less functional than BSD's. In LWSD, I spent more time getting my laptop fixed because of technical difficulties than actually learning off of it. Secondly, college prep is much more helpful in BSD. You being taking the PSAT and PreACT in your freshman and sophomore year. This created the idea of college and the importance of standardized test scores as soon as high school begins. Also, the overall curriculum in BSD is much more helpful for real world situations as well as college prep and standardized test prep. Although you are required to take some higher level classes, it really does pay off. Overall, I have not regretted my transition from LWSD to BSD for a second.
