  • Message from Mr. Meyer:
    • The Bellevue Community School District is focused on student learning and meeting the needs of students for their lives in the 21st century.  The district believes in preparing students for their years in school, along with their lives after graduation.  As Bill Daggett from the International Center for Leadership in Education states, “the primary aim of education is not to enable students to do well in school, but to assist them to do well in their lives outside of school”Application of student learning is a key to all programs in the Bellevue Schools, and is a continuous emphasis for student work.  The district believes students must be engaged in authentic learning opportunities in order for true learning to occur.  As a result,Some unique aspects of the Bellevue Schools in comparison to many schools in the area and across the state include the following:

      1:1 Program – All students in grades 6-12 have their own computer to use in school and take home each day to work on assignments, research, and ultimately assist in their learning.  Students in grades 3-5 are given their own laptop to use in school, while students in grades 1 & 2 have their own iPad to use.  Kindergarten rooms have student iPads for over half of the class to assist in reinforcing learning.

      College Credit – Students in the Bellevue Schools earn an average of over 17 credits during their high school careers, with many earning over 30 credits and some earning over 50 credits.  This allows students to often enter college as sophomores, and saving thousands of dollars in tuition and other college costs.

      Personalized Learning – An assortment of personal learning opportunities are available to students in all courses.  The interests of students drives the curricular focus, and elementary students are routinely engaged in problem-based learning opportunities through “Passion Projects” and “Genius Hour” research and presentations to others students, parents and community members.  In addition, middle school and high school students are engaged in other problem-based learning in all courses, along with the Bellevue Big program which is 100% developed around student interests in societal and community issues.

      Real-Life – As a result of community members involved in the School Improvement Advisory Council, all students are required to pass a “Real Life” course in order to graduate.  The course, typically taken during their junior year, focuses on financial literacy, auto/home repair, and wellness/independent living principles.

    • The Bellevue Community School District is focused on student learning and meeting the needs of students for their lives in the 21st century.  The district believes in preparing students for their years in school, along with their lives after graduation.  As Bill Daggett from the International Center for Leadership in Education states, “the primary aim of education is not to enable students to do well in school, but to assist them to do well in their lives outside of school”Application of student learning is a key to all programs in the Bellevue Schools, and is a continuous emphasis for student work.  The district believes students must be engaged in authentic learning opportunities in order for true learning to occur.  As a result,Some unique aspects of the Bellevue Schools in comparison to many schools in the area and across the state include the following:1:1 Program – All students in grades 6-12 have their own computer to use in school and take home each day to work on assignments, research, and ultimately assist in their learning.  Students in grades 3-5 are given their own laptop to use in school, while students in grades 1 & 2 have their own iPad to use.  Kindergarten rooms have student iPads for over half of the class to assist in reinforcing learning.

      College Credit – Students in the Bellevue Schools earn an average of over 17 credits during their high school careers, with many earning over 30 credits and some earning over 50 credits.  This allows students to often enter college as sophomores, and saving thousands of dollars in tuition and other college costs.

      Personalized Learning – An assortment of personal learning opportunities are available to students in all courses.  The interests of students drives the curricular focus, and elementary students are routinely engaged in problem-based learning opportunities through “Passion Projects” and “Genius Hour” research and presentations to others students, parents and community members.  In addition, middle school and high school students are engaged in other problem-based learning in all courses, along with the Bellevue Big program which is 100% developed around student interests in societal and community issues.

      Real-Life – As a result of community members involved in the School Improvement Advisory Council, all students are required to pass a “Real Life” course in order to graduate.  The course, typically taken during their junior year, focuses on financial literacy, auto/home repair, and wellness/independent living principles.
