Mark Pittman
Principal

Welcome to Bellevue Middle Prep, home of the Mighty Owls! My vision for the school is to continually strive to be the top, zoned middle school in the state of Tennessee. 

We seek nothing short of excellence in every endeavor at BMP. Our faculty and staff are outstanding and dedicated professionals who not only teach but care about all our students and their needs. Our PTO is active, and we hope you will consider getting involved in our school.  

Please know that we are open and willing to talk to you about your student and any concerns you may have. Please stop by anytime and take a school tour during the class day. We want the best for our students and work hard every day to make that happen.

Pathways

 

School Description

One of the top-performing zoned middle schools in Nashville, Bellevue Middle Prep offers a challenging curriculum in a caring environment. Bellevue is one of only a handful of middle schools in the district that offers the distinguished International Baccalaureate program. We also offer Advanced Placement classes and numerous opportunities to earn high-school credits, as well as the Encore program for gifted and talented students. 

All of our students participate daily in our outstanding Response to Instruction and Intervention (RTII) program, which helps them grow in their learning. Our music program consists of three pathways—symphonic band, strings and rock band—which consistently rank at the top level at competitions statewide. After-school sports, club days and intramural days are also part of our regular schedules.

We offer a friendly environment with outstanding teachers, counselors and other professionals who work with our students on academics and social emotional learning.  Our teachers and staff are creative, and we are always updating our programs to fit the needs of our students. 

Our success is bolstered by a supportive community. Adjacent to our school is a community garden and public library, and both facilities are available to our students and teachers each and every day. Bellevue Middle Prep also boasts an active PTO.
