My favorite thing about being apart of the Belvidere school district, was seeing the school constantly adapt to new changes in teaching habits for children. My principal was probably the best to have! He was so open to student led ideas, so it was like the possibilities were endless. What I didn't like about this district, was specifically certain math teachers at both the middle and high school levels.

Overall, I really enjoyed my time at Belvidere High School. I had some amazing teachers that inspired me to chase my dreams in college. The social climate was healthy, and there was a decent amount of clubs to participate in. My biggest problem with Belvidere High school, however, was the lack of college preparation that I received there. Most of the AP classes were no where near college level. There was never much push on writing papers, which is obviously very prevalent in college, and APA format was never taught to any extent. Like every school, there are some improvements that could be made, but like most of my peers, I enjoyed the four years that I spent as a Belvidere Buccaneer.
Belvidere is the type of school I would want my kids to go to. The teachers care about college preparedness and will always go the extra mile for you if you have an issue or want to learn more than the curriculum. They have an great Fine Arts program with 2 kids going to nationals for band this past year and has one of the last live pit musicals left in the area. The athletic department could use work, but we still have many successful sports and promising, budding new coaches that are turning the teams around. The school has gone through a dip with participation, but the energy that the new administration has brought these last 2 years has proven effective, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Belvidere return as a powerhouse in Northern Illinois.
