Preparation of Students for Their Future
Bellevue High School works to prepare its graduates for a variety of opportunities after their graduation from high school. In order to do this well, the school is continually examining the needs of its students for life after high school.
Course Description Guide 2017-2018
The Bellevue MS/HS provides various opportunities for students who are struggling in classes, or who have struggled in the past. Some of these services include the following:
- Academic Services each day on a student’s schedule where they are assigned a specific block to work with a teacher or paraprofessional on improving their skills in Math, Reading or other areas, along with an emphasis on writing and tutoring/homework assistance.
- Zero & 9th Block is offered before and after school, respectively, for assistance with homework and general academic tutoring.
- Tutors are available for students in all areas, and are typically students who are in school and who have mastered the class in prior years or prior semesters. Tutoring usually takes place during the school day, but can also take place either before or after school.
If students need help, we will do everything possible to provide assistance to them for no extra charge.
National Honor Society
National Honor Society, or NHS, is an organization whose intent is to recognize high school students based on scholarship, leadership, service, and character. The Bellevue NHS members belong to the Herbert Hoover Chapter that operate independently of the national office but maintains the same criteria and standards. In order to be considered for membership, the student has to be a sophomore, junior or senior with a 3.4 GPA. Local chapters maintain their own invitation and induction criteria for membership at school. At BHS, a list of all students eligible is presented to the secondary staff to rank on leadership, service and character. A teacher may elect not to rank a student if they so desire. This is in no way intended to be detrimental to the student. After all students are ranked, a listing of all averages is presented to the NHS committee. The committee of 5 faculty members then determine the cut off points for induction. The committee meets with both the principal and the advisor who are non-voting members of the committee. The advisor will then inform the newly elected members of their induction in the spring ceremony.
Driver’s Education for students is offered through the Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency (MBAEA) in Bettendorf. This cooperative agreement between the Bellevue Community School District and the MBAEA allows for classes and driving time to be completed at Bellevue High School with trained instructors.
More information can be obtained from Anne Budde at the MBAEA at 1.800.947.AEA9.
