Sharing Our Stories

Hear from our learning community who share their thoughts on leading, learning and playing at Tillicum Middle School.

Alberto Big Smile.

I have worked at Tillicum Middle School for 20 years and can honestly say I appreciate every single staff member here. Having subbed at other schools, I believe here at Tillicum, we have a unique, cohesive and caring staff. Even more so, as a parent, both my kids are thriving — all because of our amazing staff. Tillicum is the best middle school ever and the staff is what makes us the best! 

Malinda Elien

We are happy to be in Bellevue because of the innovative educational opportunities that make Bellevue School District unique — including the integration of Computer Science into our science classes. My daughter's favorite part of 8th grade science was the opportunity to learn how to use computer modeling to explore magnetism, including understanding conditional variables. The Bellevue Schools Foundation has been the key funding partner allowing Bellevue to offer relevant learning opportunities like these to every one of our students, ensuring they have the educational foundations to succeed in whatever they do.”

I really enjoyed performing in the musical Aladdin at Tillicum. Everyone was so nice and friendly and I made so many new friends. I felt included and accepted.
