    Extracurriculars: We have many clubs and organizations you can participate is. Many clubs are very dedicated to their purpose and we do a lot of different activities.

    Overall Experience: We have a lot or different clubs and organizations, which makes participating very fun. We also strongly support each other in sports and academics, as well as when somebody gets down.

    Overall Experience: If I could do it all over (and actually have a choice in what school I attend), I probably would not choose Bellevue High School. It's not a bad school, however due to the small town that it resides in, it offers a very limited cultural view. For those who don't mind being surrounded by those who all share the same race, religion, and political views, Bellevue is a great school. I just value a bit more diverse enviroment.

    Overall Experience: This school is good if you aren't too ambitious or if you're just average. Some teachers are amazing (Mr.Booze, Mrs.Yanda) others are lazy or don't know how to teach. We only have two AP classes (Literature and Studio Art.) The AP Lit teacher really doesn't too well, and says that most kids get 4's and 5's on the AP class when in reality, most kids get 2's and 3's. For example, a girl who graduated in 2014 used the writing techniques that the Lit teacher taught at BGSU and ended up failing the writing course. I took BGSU writing courses my junior year and passed with flying colors. No honors classes or IB classes, just accelerated classes that are basically all just a bit ahead than the regular classes. Everybody cares about sports, specifically football, even though our team has not gone to state since 2012 (in which we lost.) There is also a serious lack of clubs and organizations. You can only be elected to student council if you play sports, regardless of what your ideas for the school are or how smart you are. At the most, five kids go to Ohio State each year, and those kids even never think that's as high as you can go. Most kids end up going to BGSU, UToledo, Cleveland State, UAkron, Kent State, etc. Kids also never aspire to earn a degree higher than a bachelor's. My boyfriend, who graduated in 2014, was the only person to go into a professional program (pharmacy.) So basically, if you aren't striving for much in life, or if you want to be average or below average, go to the Bellevue High School. It's not hard to graduate unless you're really lazy or stupid.
