Eagle Scout Project
One of our students at Bellevue High School, Stephan Nicol, is working on an Eagle Scout Service Project to build a 6-hole disk golf course along the edges of Felderman Park (featured in the Bellevue Herald Leader this week). He needs funds for the “baskets” for the golf targets. Contact the school at 872.4001 to donate or for more information.

Welcome to the Bellevue Schools! We are proud of all that we offer our students and community as we develop students who are critical thinkers, lifelong learners, self-motivated and goal-oriented individuals. As Bill Daggett states,
“The primary goal of education is not to enable students to do well in school, but to help them do well in the lives they lead outside of school.”
Visitors are always welcome in our buildings, and feel free to stop by anytime to tour our Bellevue Elementary classrooms to experience Everyday Math, Daily Five literacy, and ST Math. In addition, stop by Bellevue Middle School/High School to see our students working on their 1:1 Chromebooks, see students creativity at work as they develop a solution in a Problem-Based Learning environment, observe the concept of “Blended/Flipped Learning”, and talk with students about their 25+ college-credit courses offered on-site (along with an unlimited amount of on-line college credits at no cost to students and their families). Finally, observe our Academic Services program that works to make sure that ALL students are successful in their courses and in developing the skills that are required for a BHS graduate.
The Bellevue Schools are continuously working to achieve excellence in all that we do through a “Passion to Achieve Excellence.”
Tom Meyer, Superintendent
