History[edit]

Belleview High School (BHS) is located in a rural area just west of US Highway 441, ten miles south of Ocala. Currently, it serves 1,450 students. The racial composition of the community is predominantly white (77%), with approximately 14% African American, 11% Hispanic, 1% Asian, and 1% Multiracial. The school’s population includes 24% students with disabilities, 5% ESOL and 35% low-income students.[citation needed]

BHS operates on an alternating day schedule, with one 45-minute and three 90-minute classes each day, which address CIM strategies by department developed plans and assess the skills by the district calendar.

In 2006, BHS was awarded an Innovation Fair Grant to be used to plan for the expansion of academies to include all BHS students. In addition to academies, BHS offers dual enrollment programs, Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) courses, and a General Educational Development (GED) program.
