Bellevue Middle from the lens of Principal Swihart

Bellevue Middle School sits right in center of the community. It’s home to the Mighty Owls; and if the principal, Dr. Seth Swihart, has anything to say about it, you’re going to want to visit Bellevue Middle.

I can’t think of a better way to serve my own neighborhood than being principal of Bellevue Middle School – my own children go here. It’s a way I can pour myself into my community. It’s a way to show optimism, positivity, and pride here in the Bellevue Community. It would be hard for me to sell the school authentically if I didn’t send my own kids.

At Bellevue Middle, we have amazingly talented teachers, hard working and caring students, and a community in pursuit of excellence – which is our vision. We provide an excellent academic as well as social-emotional education for our students.

Visit Bellevue Middle School to see what it’s really like and not what you think it’s like; and see the community. Give us a chance – talk to me, talk to our staff, and come see the school for yourself before you make a decision about Bellevue Middle. I believe in this school.
