Lewis and Clark Middle School - established 2007

Named after famed explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, Lewis and Clark Middle School opened to students in August, 2007. The new, single-story middle school helped alleviate crowding at Logan Fontenelle and Mission Middle Schools.

Seventh grade teams occupy the south wing of the building while eighth grade teams use the north wing. The students share elective classes, gymnasiums, locker rooms, cafeteria, multi-purpose room, as well as a state-of-the-art media center and computer lab.

The Bellevue Board of Education originally purchased a middle school site on 42nd and Capehart Road. In reviewing the needs of the school district, it was determined that a 20-acre site in Heartland Hills was better suited for Bellevue’s third middle school. The District negotiated with the owner of the site, Nebraska United Methodist Foundation, and the exchange of land took place. Lewis and Clark Middle School was then built on the 20-acre site in Heartland Hills.
