About Our School

  • At PLA@Bellingrath Middle School, we believe that every student is a scholar. With the right education, scholars can fulfill their tremendous innate potential and become leaders in their communities and the world. 

    In 2022, with the support of the Montgomery Education Foundation (MEF) and Phalen Leadership Academies (PLA), Bellingrath became a premier charter school in Montgomery, Alabama. We work together with parents and the community to improve the educational outcomes of our scholars and neighborhood families. Bellingrath exists to serve the local community and create a safe and thriving space for scholars to feel loved, empowered, and encouraged through quality education.
