ABOUT US

Bellevue BIG is a project-based learning movement that is derived from Bellevue Community School District. The Lead Learners are teachers employed by Bellevue Schools, and students are all able to participate at no cost if their school schedule allows. Bellevue BIG is loosely based on the Iowa BIG model that is housed in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Bellevue BIG was created through the effort of the BIG team, by the community, and for the community.


Bellevue BIG offers a new educational option for students who prefer to participate in real-world scenarios. Students are provided with opportunities that encourage them to develop more than just the basic skills necessary for high-school. They choose or create projects based on their passions, and the Lead Learners configure the projects to meet the core high school standards.

The core design principles are:

  • Use passion to encourage an interest in learning while still obtaining core credits

  • Provide students an opportunity to solve real-world issues, and engage with the Bellevue community

  • Thoroughly connect students with their communities to provide a strong and unified community
