Best school and the most fantastic teachers who are so invested in the growth and development of kids. My daughter’s learning graph has accelerated so much. We are beyond satisfied. Thank you, Bennett Elementary School.

Watching Kindergarteners use basic programming skills to move robots is an experience that you can only get in the Bellevue School District. The high-quality educational opportunities that our students have access to is only possible through the support of the community. The Bellevue Schools Foundation has been the key community partner to fund educational innovation in a way you can't find anywhere else in the state, so our students learn the skills to be 21st century thinkers starting in preschool.

Ms. Strazulla’s staff and teachers have put in a lot of efforts in creating a safe and happy environment at school for the kids. It is great to see fun activities like market day, STEM nights, field trips, and music recitals run at the school. The leadership program is an excellent program promoting a sense of responsibility and confidence at a young age. We appreciate all your efforts.
