From Pre-School through
Bella Vista doesn't have it's own school system. We
fall into two separate school districts with some students going to the
Bentonville school system and others to the Gravette school system. In
2007 Bella Vista's "first school", Cooper Elementary, was open for business.
Not having it's own independent school system, Cooper Elementary is part of
Bentonville School District. If the design of the school looks a
bit "barn" like there's a good reason for this. Cooper elementary did
replace a noted Bella Vista landmark. The school was built where the old Knox
barn which, for years housed the Bella Vista
Riding Stables, has stood for more then half a century. Now, rather
then housing livestock, over 500
children a year are in the same spot, learning about farms, livestock, and
many other wondrous things! John and Mildred Cooper would be proud.
One of Two Cooper Elementary Playgrounds
Riding horses at the Bella Vista riding stables was a popular venue in the early days of the village. Eventually, riding
gave way to other activities until the cost of up keeping the old barn, coupled with a general lack of interest,
helped to bring about the demise of the old Knox Farm barn.
FUTURE SCHOOL IN THE WORKS
A site off of Lanshire Blvd on the west side of Bella Vista
has been chosen for the 2nd elementary to be built in Bella Vista.
It will be in the Gravette school district, however, no time table has been advanced for the building of the school as of yet.
