Upcoming Events


  • Welcome to Bella Vista Elementary School. Located in Oakland's Bella Vista neighborhood, our school serves approximately 500 students in grades TK-5. We celebrate the diversity of our student body: more than half of our students speak another language at home.

    In fact, nearly 20 languages are represented at Bella Vista. We are a Community of Learners, promoting academic excellence in everything we do. Our teachers and staff work to inspire students each day to do their very best.

    What we do best is exemplified in our school's motto:

    We learn. We live. We achieve.

  • Oakland Freadom Cards are here!


    Cards were sent home with Bella Vista students the week of November 18-22, 2019. The Oakland Promise/Freadom Card is a regular Oakland Public Library (OPL) card on your child's school badge.  One side is the school badge, and the other side is the OPL card. If your child already has an OPL library card and receives this card, the card will become their new library card.

    Your child's library card allows them full access to all library print and online materials. Click here for more information.
