I have 3 kids currently attending Belmont and I wouldn't have it any other way! As I was once a student at Haaff, I was surprised to see some of my old teachers now teaching at Belmont, sure says a lot!! The all around atmosphere at Belmont is inviting, everyone is happy and supportive. My kids love it and I plan on keeping them at Belmont!

Belmont Elementary is awesome! I just had one graduate ond go on to Middle School where she is flourishing because of the solid education she recieved here and all the life lessons taught by a caring school community. This school has a long tradition of making volunteers feel welcome and helpful. If you are looking for a public elementary school, Belmont would be hard to beat.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
