This school is excellent it has great teachers and such a wonderful principal .Bellevue has many activities from softball to cheerleading.They also have tutoring for extra help .If they have a problem it is handeled with care and responsibility but they have very few problems.they help you with every thing you need to know for high school. If my children could go there for the rest of their lives they would.

Bellevue is one of the best middle schools in Memphis, Tennessee. Bellevue offers the curriculum needed for today's ever changing needs, the extracurricula activities to help develop a students gifts and talents, and a principal that has a genuine concern for the holistic cultivation of a child's growth. I wish my child could attend this school until she graduated from the 12th grade.

This is a great school but there wasn't enough activities that my child would have enjoyed to be in.

Bellevue is a great school. Especially, the principal, Mr. Malone. He is always accessible to the parents and children. As a parent, if I have any questions, I can email him, call him, stop by to speak with him. He is very open and friendly. The teachers are the same way. Ms. Corder has such a wonderful personality. All of the teachers tutor the children if they need help. They have plenty of extracurricular activities for the children. Best of all, Mr. Malone makes sure the school is structured, discipline, and orderly. They do not allow boys to wear their pants hanging down. Girls' skirts have to be the correct length. I am proud to have my daughter attend Bellevue.

Bellevue is an excellent school! It has a very small environment (525 students) and the teachers really care about the students. I am not surprised at all by the success of the school. The administration is also very supportive of the students, teachers and parents. I would recommend their optional program to any parent. They also have an excellent sport program and they have won more city championships than any other middle school in Memphis. Robert J.
