Belle chasse high school. home of the fighting cardinals and district champion cheerleaders. if you go to belle chasse high you know that looks are all that matters here. this school cares little to nothing about the actual students unless they are honors, AP, special education or athletic. this school cares more about what belt you wear more than what classes you're failing. I learned most of my education in 8th grade at BCA; the fact that a middle school has taught me more than 2 years here is honestly sad. I would not recommend this school to anyone with a history of needing help. if you've ever needed tutoring don't come here. the most you will get is 5 minutes of repeating the problem. unless you're athletic and can handle grades perfectly or a super genius naturally then I don't recommend this school. also to parents checking reviews, BCHS has had children jailed, caught having sex in bathrooms, drug dealings and oh yeah a teacher here who was caught with meth and heroin.
