Yes! The kindergarten teachers are excellent. Rooms are inviting and grade appropriate. Current units are reflected through out the hallway and classroom.

Teacher effectiveness: Ineffective

Attention has not been given to on going planning. In the primary grades, word lists for the studied sight words should be pasted in the notebook. What words are to be revisited at home. What reading and math skills are students working on in this week in the class. Current work in not reflected on bulletin boards. When a parent or administrator walks into Any teachers room it should be immediately known what is being taught currently.

Amount of homework: Just right

So far homework is centered around classroom instruction but around test content only from workbooks. Sometimes I've had to teacher the skills myself, but don't want to over step what the teacher is doing in the classroom. The amount of homework has been sufficient for the grade.

If developed, why such low test scores and fighting. Staff development should focus on school climate, classroom management and teaching strategies.

Develops respect: Neutral

Far too many behavior problems not appropriately addressed. Teachers need strategies on how to help students rather than yelling and arguing.


Belmont Elementary School
Develops empathy: Neutral

Teachers have to spend far too much time in discipline. If teachers would develop these skills, students can see these traits modeled.

I do not feel this is a safe school. Teachers do not dismiss students at the door. At the end of the day, students are running the halls and stairs. There are No adults to be found with the children at dismissal. Care is not given to the individual needs of students. Hallways are not attractive an appealing to visitors. Parents are not able to reach the school by phone, which is usually left off the hook. Supervisors need to visit the school more often until critical improvements are made. Unhappy grandparent and former educator.

Although I do not agree with the policies of the current principal, Belmont has improved alot since the beginning of the school year. The staff is very sweet and caring. My child has remained on the honor roll. The school has various activities for the children and they are trying to get the parents involved more. I am a former student of Belmont Elementary School and I believe the school has alot more improving to do before it meets the standards and qualities it had when I was a child.

Belmont Elementary School has a long way to go before I can get it an excellent rating. Parents are not involved because the school does a poor job in communicating activities and events to parents. The safefy and discipline is another issue. It is sad to see the children crying out for help and the slow response from administration. The kids are off the hook. The school does not offer youth development or workshops for the parents. This school is need of a lot of assistance.

Belmont is a great elementary school. The principal, teachers and staff are always kind and courteous to the parents. I appreciate their continued efforts to keep the students and parents motivated throughout the school year. Dr. Lamatina is a one of a kind principal who has an extraordinary talent for reaching out to her students. The atmosphere at Belmont is always warm and cheerful, which cannot be said about many elementary schools throughout the city. Belmont has various programs that keep the children excited about attending school. However, I would like to see more programs (in the evening) that are geared toward teaching parents how to properly instruct our children on important subject matter at home that may help them improve not only in class, but also on standardized test. May the staff, students and faculty of Belmont continue to strive for the best and keep up the good work!
