Belleville Mennonite School offers Bible based instruction from preschool through grade 12. We currently serve families from Mifflin, Juniata, Centre and Huntingdon counties. Through a combination of quality resources and teacher and parent involvement, our students routinely far surpass national averages in standardized testing. Transportation is provided for students in full-day Kindergarten through 12th grade in the Mifflin County, Huntingdon County, and Mount Union School Districts and our cafeteria serves full meals every day.
We routinely evaluate and update our curriculum. In the past few years BMS has made a substantial investment on new reading, math, and science materials and investing to provide classroom access to modern technology both for our teachers and students. We provide a monitored computer lab with internet access and strive to teach the skills our children need to compete in today's world including the time honored teachings of the Scriptures.
Study of the Bible is part of every grade level at Belleville Mennonite School. Students also participate in a routine schedule of Chapel programs that are design to instruct, motivate and praise our Lord. We also have care groups: small devotional teams lead by students.
Belleville Mennonite School also provides extra-curricular activities for those students who wish to do more. Our school is a member of the PIAA and fields teams in boys soccer, and both boys and girls basketball. For the students who have an interest in performing, the high school also presents an annual drama performance for the community. Other activities our students have been a part of include regional spelling bee competitions, speech meets, district chorus, and educational field trips.
In keeping with the founding heritage of our school we also require students at various times during their enrollment at BMS to serve others. Our high school conducts an annual service day when they go out into the community and work for other people or organizations, our younger students often take part in programs to visit and interact with the elderly. We have visited nursing homes and senior daycare centers to provide activities or programs for their clients.
In summary we at Belleville Mennonite School seek to work in conjunction with the parents and church to provide a "total" education for the young people who attend our school. Academics are certainly one priority but it is our belief that they are only a part of preparing a young person to lead a full and God honoring life.
