My daughter is a senior at BHS, and this is her fourth school year there. I feel blessed that we happenned to be in the BHS district. My impression is that BHS is a beautiful school geared towards helping students make the transition from high school to college. The are many programs and opportunities available through BHS to help prepare students for a successful career.

My son and I recently moved here from Nashville. So far, the faculty and staff have been very helpful to myself and my son. I emailed all of his teachers and responses were made to my inquiries the following day! It is a refreshing new beginning.

I think BHS has a great sports program but it seems to fall into the same category most other schools have, when it comes to students that aren't college bound immediately out of high school they are kind of forgotten.Their education is just as important.

This school has a beautiful facility but doesn't live up to expectations. Academics are spotty at best, there are way to many classes being taught in portables. Extracurricular activities are a plus with a multitude of opportunities for both genders. The administration is too distant and parent involvement doesn't seem to be encouraged. Last school grade was a D. However, I would give it a B-.

This school is absolutely great. They have the AICE Program which is like the IB program, but it comes out of Cambridge Universtity in England. All the AICE teachers are trained to teach at hight levels. They have may sport's teams, along with a band, dance team, wintergaurd, choir, and more. The parents are very involved in the school especially the sports department.

Belleview High School would have to be the best choice for a school, they have a huge amount of different classes that can be taken to help out with a student's future career. The school has a wonderful, lively staff that will help out anyone in need. It is also a beautiful school that everyone should go to.

When relocating to this area, we took 9 months to check into the neighborhoods and specifically the schools. Belleview Middle and High Schools were the two most highly recommended. We bought within the district and have been very happy. Projects are with purpose, Coaches keep the grade in priority; discipline is quick and respect for authority is expected. I have 2 daughters there now and a 3rd to come in another year. We get involved to say the least.

My daughter is a senior at Belleview High and has loved every minute of every year there. She is very certain, as well as my self, that she is recieving the best possible education in this county. We have so much respect and confidence for Belleview High that we will make certain our son attends BHS as well. We were planning to sell our home but have decided to wait until he completes his senior year so he can attend Belleview High. I cannot imagine getting a quality education anywhere other than Belleview High. Not saying there are no other good schools, but when it comes to priorities, Belleview High has theirs in order - the children.

First I would like to say Belleview High School is a beautiful school. Inside and outside. But most important it's a great place to learn and my children are learning so much. This school is such a great school. Words cant describe how much this school is great. So many extra curricular activities and its a lie the teachers dont treat the kids who do sports better than the kids who dont. This school is definetly an A!!

I think chief nine is the best teacher my child ever had.He teaches the kids about the real world of business, he really gets involved with the students. This guy should be teacher of the year evey year. He cooks ok too.

I think that this school is very much into sports. I also think that some teachers seem to care more about the sports players than regular children. I think that all students should be treated equally not based on if you play sports.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
