4 Things About Belle View Elementary

Academics

Belle View has an Advanced Academic Program for students in grades K-6. The school works with teachers to identify students that may benefit from the program, however, you can also request a screening of your child by contact the school directly.

FLES (Foreign Language in Elementary School) is an approach to language learning that helps students develop basic communicative skills in a language while reinforcing and enriching content in other disciplines. Students in Grades 1-6 attend FLES class twice a week.

The school has twenty or so outdoor learning spaces including a vegetable garden, reading garden, native wetland, amphitheater, and running track. Throughout the school year we host Community Garden Days and have a big Earth Week celebration.

Belle View is one of the smaller schools in the Alexandria area. The school’s grades span pre-kindergarten – 6th with close to 550 students and 12.3 Student/Teacher Ratio.

Most elementary schools in Fairfax County feed into one middle school and then students move on to the high school at the top of that pyramid. Students attending Belle View Elementary School will move through the pyramid system to Sandburg Middle School which feeds into West Potomac High School.

We always recommend you check out the Fairfax County Boundary Locator to confirm the schools serving a specific address before making any decision to buy or rent a home. 

School Hours

If you’re relocating from another part of the country you may be unfamiliar with the Fairfax County school calendar. School starts during the last week of August and ends in either the second or third week of June.

One important thing to consider is the school’s hours of operation. If you need to be at work by 8:30 that could present some challenges for you, especially if you’re commuting to the District or the Pentagon.

Belle View’s hours are Monday through Friday are 9:10 to 3:55 for students in Headstart through 6th grade.

Belle View offers SACC which is a before and after-school program has with the Office for Children of Fairfax County. However, I have to warn you that SACC often times has a waiting list that’s months long. Check out the SACC website to see if there are spots currently available.

If you are unable to get your child signed up for SACC there are a number of private before and after care programs in the area that will drop off and pick up your child.

Parent Involvement

Parent involvement has been linked to student achievement. When looking for a school for your kids you’re also looking for a school that’s a good fit for you as well.

Belle View PTA supports the school through various fundraisers and events during the school year. The Belle View PTA sponsors many enrichment programs throughout the year. Author visits, cultural arts assemblies and Junior Great Books take place during school hours and are fully funded by the PTA. Check out their website for a list of upcoming events and meetings.

There are lots of opportunities to support your child and the school by volunteering in the lunchroom, office, and classrooms. Your level of involvement can be as much or as little as you like.
