I went to Belle Haven from first to 8th grade and I absolutely love the relationships that I built there. I am twenty now and I still keep in touch with my classmates and some teachers. The teachers inspired me to go to college and change my community. I have finished now my second year of college with a gpa over a 3.0. The school is not the greatest, but ultimately it's the decision of the student of where they want to go in life and they have to figure out how to get there. My parents supported me but weren't involved with my school. This was the same story for many of my friends at Belle Haven and those of us who tried hard are now successful. One of my classmates went to Yale and another got a full ride to Santa Clara University.
My son attended Belle Haven for his 8th grade year and if he wasn't a gifted student and my involvement in his academic studies, I believe he would have fallen behind. The entire Ravenswood District needs an overhaul change in teachers, curriculum and violence.
Hello, I'm a parent with 2 children who attend Belle haven, and I think the school administration should try to improve on school forms, every year I'm filling out the same forms more than three times a year. It's very frustrating.
Academics are up to scale, no real music, art or sports in place, and absolutely no parent involvement, and i would say this is probably why majority of the kids grades are below average. I would not recommend this school.
