Bellevue is the fifth largest city in Washington, with a population of more than 126,000. It is the high-tech and retail center of King County's Eastside, with 140,000+ jobs and a skyline of gleaming high-rises. While business booms downtown, much of Bellevue retains a small-town feel, with thriving, woodsy neighborhoods and a vast network of green spaces, miles and miles of nature trails, public parks and swim beaches. The city's public schools are consistently rated among the best in the country.
Bellevue's population is growing and becoming more diverse. According to the census, minorities constituted 41 percent of Bellevue's population in 2010, and more than 95 different languages are now spoken by children in Bellevue Public Schools. With its reputation for good schools, Bellevue continues to attract families with children.
