ACT Requirement + Informational Data
In addition to students using this information to gain admission to college and to analyze their skills, it also allows the district to examine the skills of students and potential areas of focus and improvement for future students as they move through their career at the Bellevue Community School District.
Bellevue High School has dramatically increased the amount of students who have taken the ACT (moving from 34% of graduates in 2006 to 66% of students in 2013) as we attempt to make students “think big and dream big” for their life. Beginning with this year’s graduates, 100% of students will have taken the ACT prior to their graduation.

Bellevue High School offers 15-20 college courses on campus to students, along with several different on-line course opportunities that meet the needs and interests of students. Currently over 50 students are enrolled in online college courses for this semester, and over 75 students will be earning college credit on campus this school year through the following curricular areas:
World Languages (Spanish), Business, Science, Industrial Technology, Agriculture, Family & Consumer Sciences & English.
97% of graduates in the last three years have earned a minimum of one college credit, with over 56% earning over 15 college credits while in high school. In addition, some statistics of the graduates of the Class of 2013 include the following:
- Over 95% were enrolled in a college course
- 78% were enrolled in two or more college courses
- 22% of students earned more than 30 college credits
Ultimately, students earning college credits while still in high school assists them in recognizing the rigor of college coursework and saves students and families thousands of dollars for courses that would eventually need to be taken in college.
