Belleview High School has been named a National Magnet School of Distinction by Magnet Schools of America, the national association for magnet and theme-based schools.
The Cambridge AICE Curriculum is the content that we use throughout ALL of our Pre-AICE and AICE Magnet program courses. We use IGCSE Syllabi for Pre-AICE Courses and AS & A Level syllabi for AICE level courses. The individual course and requisite examination content are use in both academic and elective courses. We are expanding our elective offerings to include related CTE content to provide both breadth and depth of study for our magnet program students. We also utilize Cambridge curriculum for our general education 12th grade English course.
Through our Career Choice Program in Robotics, Automation and Design (RAD), students enrolled in that program take courses that lead to high level industry certifications in SolidWorks as well as Certified Product Technician (CPT) through the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC). Our Robotics students take several field trips throughout the year to provide learning connections for students to places such as Lockheed Martin, Cardinal Glass, Etc.
