Bethany Spinler, Principal
Bellevue Big Picture School is a secondary (6th-12th grade) school-of-choice. In partnership with the nationally recognized Big Picture Learning Network, five guiding principles provide the schools foundation and framework: personalization, adult-world connection, common intellectual mission, supportive partnerships, and shared leadership and responsibility. The school is uniquely structured to educate, support, and guide students from middle school through high school graduation, building bridges across the grades that lead to college success. Opening for the 2011-2012 school year, the school will enroll 6th and 9th graders only and phase in new grade levels each year.
