Bel-Aire Elementary is a school-wide Title I School.

Bel-Aire Elementary School serves approximately 750 students, kindergarten to sixth grades. We offer our students a state of the art learning environment with internet access in all classrooms, so all students can become part of our global society. Each classroom has a Smart Board interactive whiteboard and at least four computers for students to use during the school day. Students have access to a fully automated library and media center, two computer labs, and mobile laptop carts as well. A variety of educational programs such as tutoring, enrichment courses, and online curricula provide students with a wealth of opportunity to excel and achieve.  Each teacher can better meet student needs with data warehousing resources developed by district personnel. These resources allow teachers to profile the past performance of each student and better meet the specific needs of individual students. Our students can also participate in extra-curricular after-school clubs.  Our school provides a safe learning environment where all students have opportunities to succeed.

Vision: to be the BEST!

to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment with high academic and character expectations where all students have opportunities to succeed on their paths to becoming lifelong learners and productive citizens.

Motto: We DARE to be the BEST!
