What Makes Our School Unique?
Bellevue Middle School (BMS) is an International Baccalaureate World School which sets in the beautiful hills surrounding the community of Bellevue in western Davidson County. The school is the academic home to 700 fifth through eighth graders. The school is committed to supporting student success in academics, athletics, co-curricular competitions, the arts, music, drama and community service. Bellevue is among the top five performing middle schools in the district as measured by our students' academic performance on standardized tests.
BMS is one of the five schools in Tennessee to receive reauthorization to participate in the Middle Years International Baccalaureate Programme. We offer advanced academics and high school credit classes for students who qualify. Our school provides three computer labs, a student computer in each classroom, and Library Media Center with 30 Dell computers for student use. In addition, our teachers use technology to support and enhance student learning.
BMS administers the following assessments to students to determine student growth and understanding: Think Link testing in reading and math three times per year, District reading, writing, and math assessments, and a summative evaluation known as TCAP (Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program).
We offer band and/or strings for the musically inclined and students are provided many opportunities to practice their skills outside of school hours.
