Last spring more than 1,800 Bellevue students were recognized for their biliteracy by the state.

The Washington State Seal of Biliteracy was established to recognize public high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in speaking, reading and writing in one or more world languages in addition to English.   

Being bi-literate increases students’ marketability for jobs, and it’s been shown that students who take four years of world language score more than 100 points higher on the SAT.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
