    Fights numerous times a year no cameras they are on the third Principal in 3 years! Academically deficient. NO computer courses. Teachers were good but so many cuts no parent involvement with academics; just sports. Many good young teachers were let go.

    I graduated two years ago and little old belvidere high was awesome. You know everyone there which was great. The other three bad reviews is a bunch of bull. There are no bomb threats everyday like pburg and there area is real safe. If sports are more important to a student than their academics then go to the less safe pburg or easton.

    The academics at BHS are just as good as most schools in the area. I graduated in 2001 and had the best 4 years there. They are not the greatest at sports but it is a safe school and as a teacher I would be very comfortable sending my child there.

    Poor academics poor foreign language options limited school sports.

  • (9 years ago)

    Quality of academic programs is poor. If your child is involved and excellent in sports this is not the school for them.
