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.
