As a former staff member, there is nothing special about this school. It meets District standards and guidelines. Has dedicated staff and teachers, and functions fairly well within the community. The community is the problem. They expect everything done their way, show no patience, grace, or tolerance toward anyone, and they display elitist behavior as the accepted norm. Do yourself a favor and find a school where the adults involved know how to treat other people. Education is districtwide, behavior is community-specific.

I think this school needs a more current review, so here goes. Belleview is a great school- this is my son's 3rd year there. I've been impressed with how they have stepped up their anti-bullying efforts, and they seem to intervene in situations before they become patterns of behavior. The teachers my son has had have been great for him. Though some have been quite strict, it has been good to make him aware of his responsibilities. One thing I'm not a fan of this year is the lunchroom monitor using a microphone to keep the kids in focused and in line during lunch. Let the kids have some time to relax and enjoy their food without feeling like they are at boot camp with a drill sergeant! We have a new principal this year, so I'm assuming it was her idea?

I have a love hate relationship with this school. Love-before and after school program, the teachers, yearly carnivals, and after school programs. Dislike-how the PTCO is held at NINE AM, so only stay at home moms can attend. Dislike-when my daughter was bullied at school, it took a while for the principal to step up.

The support at the school is great! The school really strives to accomodate different learners. There is a variety of classes as well as a variety of extra curricular activities. The parent support is over whelming as well

I cant give this school a full five stars yet just because this is my sons first year attending this school. But just what I observed at Back-to-school night I was just floored at all the things my son is going to learn this year. I can barely WAIT! My son gets up every morning with a huge smile on his face, looking foward to each day! I couldnt be happier!

Academics are very strong at Belleview but the curriculum is extremely black and white. There's very little sense of creativity or problem solving on the part of the students and thinking outside the box is not encouraged. There's way too much emphasis on CSAP preparation and too much pressure put on the kids to perform. If your child is a highly motivated learner, this might be a good fit, but if you value creativity and a sense of community, and a nurturing environment, this is not the place.

I would rate every component of this school exceptional. The teachers are enthusiastic and very experienced, there is a wide variety of extracurricular activities in which the children are encouraged to participate and they do a great job making sure that each child and parent feels like they are involved and 'counted'. Their before and after care program is amazing as well.

I have 2 children attend Belleview Elementary from K-5th grade (1996-2006). The staff and overall environment of the school is exceptional! You cannot beat the 4th grade teaching team. My kids enjoyed their time there as well.

Great school, a lot of parent involvement. Veteran teachers, it has one of the few Shakespeare Clubs in the district.

My kids have really improved at this school. Teachers and staff are always helpful and ready to children all the time. There are school programs for each grade and help get everyone involved (if the parents want to).

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.
