The Freshman Center was a waste of money for 3 reasons 1. You can' t prepare someone for something they are already doing 2. Eighth grade should have prepared them fo rhigh school 3. They can't excel beyond freshman level classes without completley skipping a grade.

Well I have been a student of this school since the 06-07 school year started. The teachers help you out alot more and the scheduling is more thought out. Even the Principal is out walking the halls and hes awesome. There are a few teachers that some of the kids there don't like but that is normal. Since being in Belton since pre-school I have never seen more extra-curricular activities. Now I don't see many parents, but I guess its just high school, correction freshman center. The only 2 problems I have seen with this school is it starts 10 minutes before the middle school and 15 minutes before the high school. Also the Counselors are great to talk to but not really all that helpful. Overall I would give this a solid 4 out of 5.
