Bellevue School District Reviews

Bellevue school district places a disproportionately large importance on college readiness. Of course going to college is important and it's great that this district takes it seriously but I've been having college prep shoved down my throat since 5th grade. After going through my senior year and experiencing the true amount of stress that comes with picking, applying to, and financing an education at a college, I think it's something that should be kept off the minds of such young kids. I really have loved most of the staff I've interacted with at the three Bellevue School District schools I attended. Most teachers went out of their way to accommodate students' needs, most were understanding of extenuating circumstances whether it be financial, familial, or regarding mental health. Most teachers and staff were very approachable and you could tell they genuinely wanted the best for their students.
Review Bellevue School District
Bellevue school district offers an advanced curriculum. Taking advanced placement classes is highly encouraged. Academics is taken very seriously. Classes prep students very well for college. There is a study center where students gain access to free help with fafsa, college tracks, formulating strong resumes and finding jobs. Instructors are kind and passionate. The district is extremely liberal and welcomes people of all orientations. Bellevue district is a clean and quite safe. Sports are undermined but available for recreation. There also exists many after school clubs and activities which makes staying at school all the more inviting.
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.
