High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district. Bellaire High School is a secondary school located at 5100 Maple Street in Bellaire, Texas, United States. Bellaire High School is part of the Houston Independent School District and is part of the Houston Independent School District. Bellaire High School is known for its academics and extracurricular activities in the greater. It is located inside the city of Bellaire, which is mostly residential. Single-family houses surround Bellaire High School.
The school opened in November 1955 as Bellaire Senior High, when many neighborhoods in close proximity to the school were newly-developed post World War II communities. Bellaire's first principal was Harlan Andrews. The school had initially all Caucasian when it was desegregated in 1970, bringing in African American students. Demographic shifts continued in the early 1980's and the percentage of Hispanic students greatly increased. Since 1980's to present, many Asian students are attracted to Bellaire's challenging academic programs each year.
Bellaire also has a wide variety of music and fine arts programs. Its 6 students made it to the 2005–2006 Texas All-State Orchestra. The orchestra ranked second place in the 2003 TMEA, Texas Music Educators Association High School Honor Orchestra. In 2005, Bellaire had 9 national debate qualifiers. Houston ISD provides school buses for students who live more than two miles away from the school or who have major obstacles between their houses and the school. Students are eligible if they are zoned to Bellaire or are in the Bellaire magnet program.
In the past several years, Bellaire has produced several international science competition winners. As of 2006, Bellaire is unique as the only comprehensive high school in Houston ISD where White, Black, Asian and Hispanic students each represent more than 10 percent of the student body. The predominately Jewish neighborhood of Meyerland is also zoned to Bellaire High School and therefore many Bellaire students are Jewish. The school's unique location, demographics and socioeconomic composition have given rise to a number of unique subcultures. Many students in other parts of Houston ISD transfer to Bellaire to escape home schools that do not have good academic performance, causing the attendance figures of those schools to suffer.
