What Makes Our School Unique?

Bellevue Middle Prep 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.

BMP is one of the few 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 access to 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.

BMP administers the following assessments to students to determine student growth and understanding: District reading, writing, and math assessments, and a summative evaluation known as Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP), Constructed Response Assessment (CRA) and guitar.

We offer band and/or strings for the musically inclined and students are provided many opportunities to practice their skills outside of school hours. Our visual arts for our aspiring artists showcases student work with A Night of the Arts. Small musical groups provide listening entertainment for the many visitors coming to see the student created artwork on display.

Student athletes may participate in football, basketball, soccer, track, volleyball, wrestling, and cheerleading. Budding historians can participate in National History Day, and Leadership Council helps student develop their abilities to become our future leaders.
