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.
