Great students and curriculum! This is what prep school should be, not a haven for affluent students to hide from diversity and culture. So glad we made this decision!

Bella Vista places an emphasis on kindness, respect and leadership. BV students have been complimented, by the community, for their sportsmanship, teamwork and concern for each other. They are always encouraged to stand up and do the right thing.

This was a great school year. Excellent teachers, fantastic classes, amazing field trips and the Shakespeare Festival was great! We look forward to next year!

My child is so excited for school to begin! He loves the classes and teachers and the field trips add so much to his learning experience. I feel so fortunate to have my child at BV. He loves it and so do I.

A truly wonderful school! The teaching staff cares about each student. Because of the small size, no student is forgotten or left behind. Students are placed based upon academic performance and academic needs. Our kids have blossomed and become motivated and enthusiastic learners and leaders-something which would not have been possible in the public schools. I recently had an opportunity to talk to a friend's daughter who was in an honors English class in public school & discovered they took 1 year to learn how to do a research paper-with the final paper being their final grade. A whole year?! My kids learned the basics in 5th/6th grade and have been continuously polishing this skill throughout high school.

Bella Vista is a school where the staff truly cares for the academic and personal success of each and every student in their charge. The small class sizes combined with the wide variety of courses offered provide students with an unparalleled opportunity in preparation for college and life. The classes are largely project based, enabling students to grasp concepts using real- world applications. I have personally seen how the staff strives to help each student achieve their personal best by recognizing and addressing the needs of the individual. Caring and striving for excellence is what make this school stand above the other learning institution choices.

Terrible school. The teachers who work there are some of the worst people I've ever met. Hipocrites beyond measure. The amazing reviews below are written by the staff, It's pretty pathetic when you read it through. The school is depressing, and most of the kids can't wait to get out of there. The list of what's bad goes on and on. No one should have to go to a place like Bella Vista.

Students enrolled in Bella Vista must demonstrate good behavior and be motivated to accomplish their goals. Bella Vista has a diverse population of foreign students that add their wonderful culture to the school. Bella Vista celebrates its tenth anniversary this year. Its students are happy and motivated participating in programs that are not offered in other schools. The BV graduates have been accepted in some of the top universities. It is beyond a great school.

Bella Vista students have served in the Cave Creek and surrounding communities for many years. As a community member, I have found myself working along side a student from Bella Vista on many occasions, whether it was serving at the shelter or picking up trash along the road, the BV students were always ready to help. Very impressive.
