My Daughter went to Belmount Elem for the full six years from K grade thru the 5th and I must say 6 wonderfull years. Now my Grandaughter is just about to finish her 2 nd year. The Teachers as well as all personnel at Belmount have been such wonderful people in my family life's. I think every one should be able to attend such a GREAT school. As my Granddaughter is about to Grad K grade her reading level is outstanding as is her Math and writing skills. I have spoken with other parents that have the same age children and seem to be amazed at Leslie's skills.......like I tell them Belmount is out standing.

i have four grandchildren attending belmont, 5th grade, 4h grade, 3rd grade, and kindergarden. i fine the teachers to be well educated and very parent friendly. the kids learn and excell in there classes because the teachers make learning an adventure. the kids look forward to going to school, and it seems as though the teachers know not only the kids in there class but other kids as well. i cand not say enough about mrs.hopson, the principal, she is very good with all the kids very friendly but also has there respect, the education department alt to have many more just like her, she is a gem

I'm glad my kids are at Belmont. The teachers seem to really care about treating the students as individuals.

First of all, Belmont is the BEST! The teachers and staff are awesome and so are the students. I love the school's overall structure and how they encourage, and reward the students good behavior and academics. My kids love their teachers and enjoy going to school. If you ask me Belmont is #1!

I am not at all impressed with this school or the school district.The school starts at 7:25am. My 2nd grade daughter has to catch a bus at 6:30,before the middle and high schoolers. She eats breakfast at 6:15 and doesn't eat again until 12pm. In the months that she has been at the school they have had recess a handful of times,instead they stay in and watch cartoons and have snack. My daughter has close to 2 hours of home work every night,she is gone for 8 hours a day.

Belmont is an excellent school. The teachers are very well educated and work well with the students and parents. They have excellent academic programs as well as extracurricular activities. There is something for everyone! There is also a high level of parent involvement. I would recommend Belmont to anyone. Tina Herndon

I love the Cub Citizenship and discipline at Belmont. The teachers are awesome and care so deeply for the children. They teach them so much more than just the cirriculum. I do feel that parent involvement needs to improve. Overall I am a proud parent of a Belmont Cub!!

About the tests


Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2012-2013, Kentucky used the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (K-PREP) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and mathematics, 4 and 7 in science, 5 and 8 in social studies, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 11 in writing, and 4, 6, and 10 in language mechanics. The K-PREP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky.

About the tests


Until 2010-2011, Kentucky used the Kentucky Core Content Tests (KCCT) to assess students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 through 12 in reading, social studies, science, writing, and math. The Elementary School results displayed on GreatSchools profiles are for grades 3 through 5 combined for each subject. Middle School results are for grades 6 though 8 combined, and High School results are for grades 10 though 12 combined. The KCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky. Beginning in 2011-2012, Kentucky switched to the K-PREP and EOC exams.
