Message from the Superintendent of Schools


Welcome to our Bellmore Stars, “Community of Learners” website!     

Our website represents one of our many efforts to keep you informed and knowledgeable about the variety of programs, activities and services offered to students, parents and community members. We encourage you to visit our website regularly to learn more about our student and staff accomplishments and to remain current on our special programs and initiatives. 

Every student in our District is a Bellmore Star

As a result of the District’s development, training and consistent practice of leadership principles and core values through the Bellmore Stars character development initiative, Bellmore has been recognized as a Lighthouse School District by FranklinCovey Education  – one of only two school districts nationwide to receive this notable distinction. Bellmore is the first school district in Nassau County, on Long Island and in New York State to receive this districtwide honor. Through continued immersion and modeling of leadership principles and core values into all aspects of the school community and its culture, our students remain empowered to take on meaningful leadership roles and responsibilities daily.

Our students and faculty leaders also shine brightly in the areas of digital citizenship and music. The District, as well as all three of its individual schools, has been recognized as a Common Sense Certified School District for commitment to utilizing digital media to explore, create, connect and learn in a safe and responsible manner. Additionally, for demonstrating an exceptionally high commitment and access to music education, our stellar music program has been honored by the NAMM Foundation as a Best Community for Music Education.  

In addition to our Bellmore Stars Character Development Program with its focus on leadership, each student is provided with a comprehensive and well-rounded 21st-century education, allowing them to become well-equipped and informed citizens who are responsible leaders, problem-solvers, critical thinkers, innovators and collaborators.
