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 think the biggest thing about Big Picture that really boosted me into my post-undergraduate career was the LTI internship program. If you’re willing to put your best foot forward, the internship program will seriously benefit you throughout college and even after. Employers love to see candidates who have shown long-time interest and commitment to their field of interest, and the LTI program is the perfect way to do that — it’s not every day that a newly graduated college student comes to an interview with multiple internships and professional references. I think the people who are most successful at Big Picture are the people who aren’t afraid to be themselves, the people who are visionaries, and the people who are willing to put in the work to achieve amazing things. I give so much credit to Big Picture for my after-college success.
