School Reviews

I love Bella Vista. My son attended BV and the academics gave him a solid, well-rounded foundation. The small class size gave him the opportunity to share his ideas, participate in discussions and activities in a welcoming environment. The school has so much to offer. Don''t let your child miss out on this wonderful school.

Every student is involved in some aspect of Bella Vista, either through the sports, student government, the arts, robotics....a very inclusive school where every student is encouraged to do their best.

Great education and a wide variety of academic and extracurricular opportunities. My children attended from elementary through high school. Field trips included environmental leadership camps, Washington D.C., New York and Costa Rica to name a few.Through the Early College Cohort Program offered at Bella Vista they each earned 35 hours of transferable college credits.

Bella Vista truly has a curriculum for each student and help for any subject you need. If you believe that your not reaching your full potential and need help applying yourself, Bella Vista would be a great school for you! I enjoy going to school with all the kids who attend. Oh and they have great clubs and activities too!

Bella Vista was one of the best decisions I''ve made as a parent! Going from public elementary to a private ''boutique like'' middle/high school was the best move for my son (entered BV as a 7th grader). The teachers and administration go above and beyond making a safe, friendly learning environment. The enjoyable yet educational field trips not only provide an amazing learning experience (one you are not able to get in public schools) but help the school year go by fast for the student! All the fears and anxieties of having my son enter middle school disappeared after his first day at Bella Vista!
