We have had a great experience at Bellaire High School after being in private school through 8th grade. Our child is being challenged academically and is learning to navigate a large diverse school which we feel is a great benefit before college. In addition, she is gaining so much real world knowledge from attending school with students from backgrounds different from her own. Finally, we have found the size of the school to be an advantage in eliminating much of the cliques, drama and entitlement attitude that is often present in a smaller school. Kids at Bellaire work hard on academics and are busy with activities, leaving little time for social drama or worrying about brand names. In addition, Bellaire offers so many opportunities, from a large selection of advanced classes, 12+ foreign languages, over 100 clubs, trips, volunteer opportunities, sports, amazing music programs, a phenomenal art program and more.
I believe this school shaped me into who I am today
This school is a mess with v poor administration. Many of the issues can be resolved only and only if there is effective leadership.
Bellaire High students are the most academically successful school in the largest ISD in Texas (Houston ISD) and is a testament to the failure of the public system. Marked by high teacher turnover, heavy police presence in hallways and racially driven student-on-student violence and facilities which can not pass safety inspections; Bellaire High is the poster child of public school failures. Three levels of academic curriculum where only the top level (AP/pre-AP) is delivers average performance on SAT/AP national testing. Standard level curriculum (lowest level) teachers are newly degreed from community colleges and other colleges with low academic entrance requirements show videos during class where as much as 50% of students are Spanish speaking only (and the teacher only speaks english). If you fail a test at Bellaire, you have the opportunity to retake the test twice. So every test is given 3 times to get the required number of students passing so the school reach graduation requirements.
