School Overview

Bellizzi School is a Pre-kindergarten to Grade 8 community school that provides students with an array of wraparound services, which include after-school programming, health and wellness services, and community partnerships. Our school is driven to aligning priorities with the defining characteristics of the surrounding community. We are proud to offer a Dual Language program in our school. All students in the Dual Language program strand will learn to read in Spanish and English beginning in Kindergarten with the goal of biliteracy in two languages by the end of 8th grade. The Dual Language program is a 50/50 program model where students have two teachers, one Spanish language teacher instructing for half the day and one English language teacher instructing for the other half of the day. Core academic instruction is taught 50% in Spanish and 50% in English.

School Report Card – the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) has prepared this report, which includes information about student enrollment, student achievement, student and teacher diversity, and much more.
