Principal's Message

Bellaire Elementary School is one of seven elementary schools in the Carlisle School District. We are located at 905 Waggoners Gap Rd. We have approximately 415 students in grades K-5 and 3 classrooms at each grade level. We are a very diverse school. We receive students from Carlisle Borough, North Middleton Township, and the United States Army War College.

At Bellaire Elementary School, our vision is to prepare our students to be life long learners while making sure all students and their families feel welcome in a safe, secure, efficient, and nurturing educational environment. We want to create home/school partnerships that promote student learning. We want to have staff members and Bellaire families proudly tell friends and relatives that they are part of the Bellaire Elementary School community- where people care about each other in a learning focused school!

A learning-focused school combines a dedicated, caring staff with a curriculum that provides a rich learning atmosphere. The Carlisle Area School District’s curriculum focuses on developing reading, math, and writing skills so that students may find success in other curricular areas. Students also have scheduled classes in art, vocal music, library, and physical education. Students in fourth and fifth grades can also elect to participate in instrumental lessons during the school day.

We have an active PTO where all parents are invited to participate. The PTO meets monthly in the school library. Please consider attending monthly meetings or getting involved in PTO committees.

We are proud of our students and look forward to continuously improving our educational program at Bellaire to best meet the needs of the Carlisle community. Herd Strong!
