Local School Information

Local School Zone for Housing Residents

Most children residing in base housing attend Bellevue Public Schools, the fifth largest school district in Nebraska. The district operates 15 elementary schools (3 in Capehart housing), 3 middle schools and 2 high schools. Most children residing in base housing attend Bellevue Public Schools.

Local Community Schools

Schools in the surrounding area educate children in grades kindergarten through 12, offering the same high level of educational quality. There are six school districts serving the area in addition to the Bellevue Public Schools: Papillion/LaVista School District, Omaha Public Schools, Plattsmouth Community Schools, Ralston Public Schools, South Sarpy School District and Millard Public Schools. Additionally, some families chose to live 20-30 miles from the base, so their children might be in the school districts of Council Bluffs or Glenwood, Iowa, or Murray, Springfield, or Gretna, Nebraska.

Parochial and Private Schools

The Airman & Family Readiness Center website has links to the numerous private and parochial schools servicing military children in the Omaha Metro area. A full listing appears in the telephone book yellow pages.

Special Education

All public school districts in the area have extensive special education programs. Once you know which system your children will attend, you can contact the special education department to discuss your child’s needs.

Home Schooling

The Bellevue Offutt Home School Group serves more than 100 homeschooling families in the Offutt area. They host monthly meetings, mom’s night out, field trips, special speakers, park days and holiday parties. They also sponsor a teaching co-op throughout the year. For questions concerning Nebraska’s home school laws please refer to the Home Educator Network homepage or the Nebraska Department of Education website.
