interested in information concernining progress of students, discipline and activities. How the students are performing on college tests for entrance.


Posted August 15, 2012

I am a former student at BHS (Class of 1990). My two eldest children graduated from BHS (Class of 2010, and 2012) and they had nothing but the best experiences. People should understand that schools cannot stand alone especially with the economic crisis that our schools are going through. It takes a village to raise a child and some parents want to leave all the responsibility to the teachers. Motivate your children and teach them respect. Attend your school meetings and make the administration aware of problems and offer to help. You wanted to have children do your part! Treat your children well, teach them values, morals, importance of education and you will see that the majority of situations is not the school, it's you. Bellflower High has come a long way due to Mr. Perry who genuinely cares. I have an 8th grader at the moment who does exceptionally well. All of them have attended Bellflower Schools and the first two are currently attending universities. Go Bucs!

I attended Bellflower High School/Middle school from 2001-2007, when I graduated. This quality of education, and the quality of teachers that I had during my time at this school were great. If i could turn back time, I would, just to experience it all over again.

Wow! No recent updates? Scary! My daughter will be attending BMS from West Middle School! What kind of teacher will she encounter? People that only do their job? What kind of staff will I encounter as a parent? I am very concern! What about the curriculum?mmmm. My daughter is honor roll student and looking forward to continue in it. and its thanks to dedicated, kind and pleasant teachers that teach well, encourage, respect, welcomes students with a smile on their face with no yelling and always looking forwards to help the student. Counselors are great as well as the principal!

Most of these reviews are outdated. The input is useful, however, it does not serve the purpose of expressing what type of school Bellflower is NOW. For the past few years, Bellflower has really bloomed into an above average institution. This progress is because of Mr. Perry's, principal of Bellflower High, outstanding leadership and determination to provide students with educated teachers who actually care about our education. I'm currently a junior attending Bellflower, and I must say, we are really upping the ante this year. A student from BHS can go to UCLA, Stanford, CalTech, UC Berkeley, etc. if he tries hard enough. So please, don't look to those reviews that are old and ABSOLUTELY DO NOT REFLECT the school that Bellflower is now.


Posted August 28, 2011

As a former student myself (1999-2003)I find my experience to be rather dissapointing, like every school Bellflower High/ Middle offers many activities & opportunities for the students to be involved in & make use to obtain social, communicational, & beneficial....however if the students parent(s) are not productive in the students life then dont expect for the child to advantage of the education being offered to him/her. The majority of the school staff dont care, and are just there to simply "do their job"...give your child the curriculm...test them...and grade them. If a student is manifesting any type of "abnormal/ or defiant" behavior...dont expect to have a counselor "reach out" and "help".....they rather not deal w/the students personal drama that occurs at home. Although some teachers can be "more involved" than others ie; phone call the parent(s), speak w/the counselor. Most prefer to simply give detention or expell the student. Ii think w/todays society, illegal activity, and peer pressure students should have some sort of moral support or counseling when teachera fear it is disrupting the students concentration & overall education.

I attended Bellflower High School and just recently grduated. I will admit when I first started attending BHS I wasn't very happy with some of the teachers. They didn't get the message they were trying to teach across very well and my grades were slipping. In my 10th grade year our new principal Mr. Joseph Perry stepped up to the plate. Since he came to our school he has implemented many things that have helped our school. Now when students litter they get citations from on campus sherriff's. Discipline is always taken care of in a timely manner with fair consequences and the administration isn't unfair in their treatment of all students. I will miss some of the teachers who aren't going to be there, but the teacher's I have met in my life at BHS have encouraged me to go for what I want.

I am currently a senior at BHS. i think this school is improving a lot. after Mr. Perry showed up there has been numerous amounts of changes. rules are being enforced more and education is becoming a bigger focus of students. As a student i know many other students who do care about there grades. all the other students who seem to lack that drive most likely is becasue they dont have someone at home telling them how important an education is. this school is really great has many dedicated teachers and a really good set of administrators. i think that if every one would just put there part then this school would get pretty far.

Posted May 23, 2007

I have been attending Bellflower High for a couple of years and it really isn't as bad as it may seem. It ultimately depends on whether that specific student is motivated to learn or not. If the student cares about getting good grades then Bellflower High School will be a good education for them because they offer AP classes and are able to be around students who actually care to learn. Through hard work it is possible to go to Ivy League. Two guys in the class of 06 went to Yale and Stanford! From my experience, the regular classes are below average simply because everybody slacks off, but if you're student attends honors and AP classes there shouldn't be too much of a problem. The school's test scores are low only because there are plenty of students who bubble in whatever, which falsely represents the school quality of education.

My child has been attending bhs as a 7th grader as of 2006. Iam concerned to see my child attend a non middle only-school. I have been observant and involved with my childs teachers so far. I know this school has new admin and will continue to support them. I know for a fact that parent involvement is crucial for the support not only to my child but for the teachers. I understand that they have their hands full teaching these many students p/day. As a parent i also acknowledge that teachers aren't responsible for teaching our kids manners or morals or proper behavior,nor should they endure lack of respect from the students. In my opinion bhs has issues to improve however, we as parents have them to. We can't expect for the schools to work well in-dependent of our participation. Get involved in any way you can!

As a recent former student, Bellflower is a horrible school with teachers that are not motivated. There are few exceptional teachers. Bellflower is very diverse and that makes it very diffilcult to teach students. The new principal is making many changes so if your children are young and the current principal stays, then hopefully Bellflower will be turned around. He imposes stronger rules and regulations.

My daughter attended this school in the 9th grade and although she did have an overall positive experience some of the things that went on in the classrooms and on campus were pretty scary. Some of the teachers had little or no control of their students. However, the administration and teachers that dedicate themselves are very dedicated. I believe if parents were to become more involved, work hand in hand with the teachers instead of against them and more importantly make sure they hold their children accountable for their actions than this school would improve greatly.

With a solid faculty/administration present, this is a school that doesn't receive as much credit as it should.

Posted June 9, 2004

I am not a parent but I go to this school and I will graduate in year 2008. This school has a great faculty and most students are caring and very generous. I would also like to add that 1 of our coolest teachers is retiring...Mr. Hammer. There are many oppurtunity's at this school and many counselors that can help with any problem that you or your child may have. So if you are having 2nd thoughts about this school you haven't met any of the great peole at this school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
