The first school opened in 1869 and was located on the Mission Reserve, land given to the city by the Omaha Tribe. The first Bellevue Elementary received many additions and eventually was named Mission Middle School. Their mascot was chosen as the red-tailed hawk to honor a Native American myth that the souls of these birds are involved in making the world a better place.
