MISSION MIDDLE SCHOOL

About Us

Established: 1869
Location: 2202 Washington Street
Grades Served: 7-8
History: Mission is the latest name of the Bellevue Public Schools building located on the northwest corner of Mission Avenue and Washington Street. Built in 1869, it was known as Bellevue School District #1 until 1911, when it was renamed Main School. In the early 1950s, the school became known as Bellevue Junior/Senior High School and educated students grades 7-12. In February 1962, when the new Bellevue Senior High school opened for grades 10-12, the school was again renamed to Bellevue Junior High School for grades 7-9. When a second junior high was built in 1966, students helped name the two buildings by sending recommendations to the Board of Education. Bellevue Junior High School became Mission Junior High School and later Mission Middle School. The name Mission honors the first school built in Bellevue by the Presbyterian Board of Missions in 1846 serving Omaha, Pawnee, and Otoe children. When the Omahas sold their land to the federal government in 1854, they gave one square mile of land in present day Bellevue to the Presbyterian Board of Missions. Mission Middle school is located on this historical Mission Reserve.
School Mascot: Mission Braves
School Colors: Purple and White

Project Notes

February 21, 2019 – Mission Middle School

As part of the bond work scheduled in the District, one of the items scheduled for replacement place the existing bleachers in the gym at Mission Middle High School. The new seating will replace the existing wood bleachers with new retractable contoured plastic bench seats. Work on the installation of the new bleachers were completed just prior to the end of the year and are in full use.

The Bellevue School District is looking at completing renovations to the existing track at Mission. The track at the school was omitted from the initial proposed bond work, but in review of existing conditions, it was determined that the condition of the track was actually in worse condition than the other middle school tracks in the District. Engineering plans are currently being prepared to replace the existing asphalt track with a new asphalt track with miscellaneous revisions around the track. Bids will be received in mid-March for consideration by the Board in April 2019.
