I have been very pleased with Belmar Elementary! The teachers, staff, and Principal Leighty are caring, outgoing, fun, dedicated, and personable. Belmar is a small school which makes it easy for all the staff to know your child and for you to get to know them. Something that I've seen a lot of first hand through the School Accountability Committee and PTA is that when Belmar sees something that can be improved upon, they use research, collaboration, and parent and staff input to make it better. Belmar is a fantastic school with a big heart.

Ms. Leighty is wonderful! I have had many opportunities to talk with her and get more involved in Belmar as a parent. I think Ms. Leighty is a very strong school leader. The teachers clearly respect her and Ms. Leighty is a budgetary wizard.
