I continue to be more disapointed with Belinder every year. My child has attended Belinder since kindergarten. Two years ago, she was diagnosed with ADHD, and is typical, she has an above average IQ. This school has done as little as possible to work with her. She sturggles with reading, but more than that, she has no confidence in her reading ability due to comments made and interventions used in the past years. If a parent does not seek information, information is not given. Belinder is supposed to be a bully free school, however, my child has been the victim of bullying for several years. She is now the one working with a social worker to learn how to deal with this on going bullying. As a family, we are looking at alternative placemments. I would not recomend Belinder to anyone.

Belinder is a fabulous elementary school. My family moved to Kansas from the east coast and have been astounded by the quality of our neighborhood school. The principal and teachers are without compare!

This school has been perfect for my two children. My youngest is a special needs child and the school responded immediately with a program that was superior to the previous school. Outstanding leadership and teachers!

Belinder Elementary is an excellent school. The teachers care about the children. They work extremely hard to help kids who need extra support. There is open communication between the teachers, principal, and parents. Parental involvement is huge here. It is a very safe, fun environment. I have a 5th grader and a 2nd grader. We couldn't be happier. This is a great school!

My children are new to Belinder this year. I have been very impressed with the level of communication between classroom teachers and parents. I recieve weekly information from the school and my childrens' teachers. They also have daily planners that help me know how I can help my child. There many ways that I can be included in school activies through PTA and my children's classrooms. I love this school!

As a new family to Belinder, I have not been very impressed with the level of communication between classroom and parent. I have noticed that there are not specific quarterly or weekly educational plans to let parents know what is being taught in the classroom. This is not helpful if you are trying to bolster learning at home. I have also noticed that many excuses are made, but solutions are not always offered. There is also a definite disparity between those of different backgrounds (financial and ethnic) that attend the school. It seems, unfortunately, to be a school for wealthy homogeneous students that are use to the lackadaisical style of education to excel.

My daughter is having an excellent experience at Belinder. She is now a 2nd grader and doing very well. The teachers are seasoned and have a great deal of experience. The only desire I have is that they initiate a Christmas / Holiday music program and that they have it at hours that working parents can be there.

I love Belinder's academics because my son is getting a high grade point average. My son says that all the activities at Belinder is great and very fun. I have had a lot of chances to be with my son's activities.

Belinder Elementary has been the most disappointing school my child has ever attended. The principle and teachers at Belinder lack communication skills. I never once felt like my family was accepted or listened to. I never see the principle interacting with the children, and only interact selectively with the parents. One great thing about Belinder is its academics. My child has stayed above average and understands the material giving to him well. Disciplinary actions taking against students are non-existent. Children are not properly punished for misbehavior in the classroom or towards other children. Dress codes and school safety are not enforced. Belinder's extra curricular activities are poor. There is not much for the students to be involved in as far as using their imagination and creativity. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

Belinder Elementary School sets the standard for an outstanding public school. Students excel in all academic areas in an environment which includes caring supportive teachers, tremendous parental support and incredible leadership. It offers students an incredible experience not found in other public or private settings. It is not to be missed!
