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!

STEAM Fair

Last night many students participated in the annual science fair at Belleville Intermediate School.  This year the experience was enhanced by encouraging students to showcase integrated projects around science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics- hence the event's updated name "STEAM Fair!"   

Thank you to all of the students who participated as well as the families and community members who came to support them!  We would also like to extent a big thank you to Mrs. Ogodogu and Mrs. Xistris for organizing the event as well as the Intermediate School custodial staff for the physical set-up.  







Surprise! We have chicks!

Below you will find a note written to an early elementary teacher about how their child loves reading.  

“To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark.” 
— Victor Hugo



Those Shoes Narrated Children's Book

Money Smart Week: The Big Read!

It was an exciting morning at Belleville Elementary School!  Students and staff welcomed Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions Deputy Secretary, Jay Risch, along with State of Wisconsin Department Communications Director, George Althoff.  Mr. Risch read the children's book, Those Shoesto all 4K through First Grade Students. Those Shoes was selected by state librarians as the mentor text for Money Smart Week 2018.  Thanks to Bill Wilcox, husband of School Board Member, Julie Porto, all students at the elementary school will take home a copy of this educational text!

Partnering with Belleville School District, United Bank and Trust of Belleville, represented by Diane O'Connor and Jessica Buttenhoff, presented each child with a commemorative piggy bank in honor of Money Smart Week.  Another huge thank you goes to Rick Francois, of Francois Ford, for awarding each student with a quarter so that piggy banks don't go home empty.  

To end the morning, High School Marketing teacher, Eric Farrar, brought some of his marketing students to facilitate financial literacy activities in all classrooms.   

Thank you Mr. Risch, Mr. Althoff, Mr. Wilcox, Mr. Francois, Mr. Farrar, Mrs. Porto, Mrs. O'Connor,  and Mrs. Buttenhoff for making Money Smart Week memorable for our students!  A big thank you to Belleville Superintendent, Pam Yoder, for making this event possible!

Staff Professional Development Day

"Teacher collaboration, when practiced with a focus on instructional strategies, curriculum, and assessment particularly, has benefits for both teachers and students...Student achievement gains are greater in schools with stronger collaborative environments and in classrooms of teachers who are stronger collaborators."  (Learning Forward, 2011) 

On Monday, February 19, staff from Belleville Elementary and Intermediate Schools continued their collaboration around designing integrated Units of Study.  Teachers worked to refine their daily lesson plans as well as align their overarching unit objectives with rigorous mentor texts and daily learning targets.  What a productive day it was!
