Review Bellevue School District
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.
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.
