About Belle Sherman Elementary

Welcome to Belle Sherman Elementary. We are located on the East Hill of Ithaca, nestled in the rolling hills by Cayuga Lake. 

At Belle Sherman we are a diverse and inclusive campus of 347 students. Our proximity to two world-class institutions provides an international student body, as well as numerous successful collaborations at both Cornell University and Ithaca College.

Our instructional strengths consist of multidisciplinary units of study, a blended instructional model that includes game-based learning,  a reading/writers workshop approach to ELA, and lessons that incorporate culture competency and diversity.

To learn more about our innovative practices and student and community engagment, please follow us on Twitter: @BelleShermanES.
