VERY DISAPPOINTMEND WITH THIS SCHOOL ALSO! There are only a couple of good teachers at this school, the remainder do not communicate with you about problems or over look problems academically with your student. My son has been harassed and bullied and nothing was done about it. The principle is horrible and is flaky! He signs his emails "Yours Truly...". Very unprofessional!
I am truly disappointed with the principal leadership of this school. Bullying is a BIG issue at this school and nothing is done to prevent it. The principal is one sided and has his favorites. I would not recommend this school if you are Hispanic. Some teachers go above and beyond, while others do not.
While the tone of the school has changed since our graduating senior was last here, overall the atmosphere is one of acceptance and respect from staff.
I'm very disappointed with this school. The principal prefers to turn his back on any bad situation rather than deal with it. Bullying occurs in almost every grade and is never dealt with. The only kids that get any attention are ESL kids. As the parent reviewer said before me - the PTA is completely dysfunctional. Completely. I'm very disappointed in the quality of education my son is receiving here and I'll be open enrolling elsewhere for next year.
Very Sadly, this school has gone downhill in the last few years. To the point that I am moving my children to another school. The administration is only concerned with getting below average kids to average, and they are overwhelmed with that task.. There are a few very passionate teachers that strive to make a difference and they are the only ones that make this school worth considering. Overall, poor leadership at the helm, no academically challenging curriculum, and completely dysfunctional PTA with very little parent support.
My son does well in Mr. Alexander's challenge room! We love the team that works so hard with Ethan!
I love Belmar. The teachers are great and the students friendly. I would like to see more homework coming home though. and the parking is awful!
I love belmar! it has a small community feel and i feel like my kids are cared for and taught as individuals. The teachers monitor and discuss my kids acedemic growth as well as how they are developing as people. I feel welcome there and that makes it easy to be involved. The new principal, ms. Loving, is exceptional. She is very available - you see her out and about, talking with kids and being present. I was surprised to see a personal note from her on my child's mid-term grade report! that kind of personal touch is priceless.
