About our Schools

Located 20 miles southwest of Madison, Belleville is a charming village that boasts a strong educational system along with a strong sense of family within the community. For a small city of just under 2,500 people, Belleville offers “big-school” opportunities in a small-school atmosphere. Belleville Elementary School hosts 4K through 1st grade with just over 190 students while the Intermediate School hosts 2nd through 6th grade serving just over 350 students. Our schools provide big-school opportunities in a safe, student-centered, welcoming environment that one would expect in a small town. This is one of the many reasons Belleville was voted one of Madison’s best suburbs!

PCL and 4K

This is an amazing story of how Belleville's Partnerships in Comprehensive Literacy Model impacts even our youngest learners!  

This morning Ms. Marsha's 4K class was in the library.  As students were lining up following checkout, one student looked across the hall to all of the first grade backpacks hanging on the wall.  The child noticed that there were several different cartoon characters on backpacks.  Looking at his teacher he exclaimed, "Ms. Marsha! See all those girls? They're all different."  When his teacher asked him what he meant he replied, "They're all from different settings."  And he was correct!!

How exciting and affirming it is to see what a rigorous literate environment can do for our students!
