Beloit Memorial High School has always been a place where people can speak about their opinions, make clubs they deem necessary for school life, and otherwise students are themselves. People mainly keep to themselves but of course their will be drama and conflict like at any other high school. Nonetheless, as of late, there have been conflicts between student, parents, and administration due to the recent election. Specifically, the issue has been focused on the Black History Month assembly that took place. Many were outraged about it and it brought to light the amount of racist that were present at our school. On a good note people know who they are and students have been able to talk to administrators at School Board Meetings and such to resolve the issue. Overall, I believe the School District, and high school in general have been doing everything in their ability to please many at the school.
While I was a student at BMHS, I felt like I belonged. There was not only diversity in the people, but also the classes offered and the organizations available to join. The AP classes I took were both fun and challenging. Teachers at BMHS care about their students and are available whenever needed.
