Amazing school. This school has a great boys and girls soccer team. They are great at reporting a student absent from class. I have great communication with all my daughters teachers. I love this school. A++++

This school unnecessarily violates student rights and interrogates them without warrant. I was approved to create a video by my teacher who assigned a gothic-style essay. A week later, I got in trouble for writing the essay even though the school admitted there was no link what so ever to Belton High School or any school. Bottom line: it was a complete work of fiction, but a good one. Because I had a "detailed plot" the school searched through my property and forced me to delete my assigned video. This clearly is a violation of my first amendment rights. I got degraded in front of my teachers and peers, who might judge me based off of the reaction of the administrators, for writing a "good" essay. Thank you Belton High School for promoting that I shouldn't put effort into my work.

The teachers are okay. They really don't know how to like control there classrooms. They say we're a bad school but it's just the teachers not knowing what to do. I go to the bhs9 and it sucks because we have to walk over when it's cold, rainy, and storming. They wonder why a lot of 9th graders don't come to school. There getting sick.

My counselor in middle school, Mrs. Tepera, really seemed to take an active interest in her kids. Probably because of our size, the issues people have had with seeing counselors are bad. We are given iPads, which make the learning a lot more fun if you get a teacher that uses them effectively. It is very easy to get ahead at this school, if you are trying. There are plenty of extracurriculars and tons of sports. We got a new principal this year, Mr. Dubois. He seems fine, but I think that if he is going to make any major changes he will probably make them his second year. The curriculum is not very challenging, and this is coming from a very involved student in all pre-AP. However, so many people don't try in school at all that the all you have to do to be in the top 5% is make all As. I don't know much about discipline issues, but I do know that I don't see many problems. I have never personally witnessed any drugs, alcohol, or more than making out in the hallways, despite gossip about it. Bottom line, very easy to succeed at this school. Teachers seem to care about their students and subjects, and are very understanding. I would definitely recommend it.
