My daughter has been a student here since 2012. I can honestly said that the teacher are amazing and they take pride in their school. My daughter has one more year at Belcher and I'm uncertain what school will she be attending that she's going to feel comfortable with.

My daughter attended kindergarten here in 2011-2012. The teachers in all 4 classrooms were amazing and they interacted socially and academically which I loved. The only reason I deducted a star is that after 2nd grade the students go to a new school unlike the rest of the schools in chicopee. There was always much to offer for school events and many parents involved.

Kindergarten and first grade were very strict, but when my son got to 2nd grade, he had the best teacher (Ms. Barree) who gave my son the attention he required and the ability to be himself. Mr. Ferris is a very fair principle and is good with the kids.

Both of my children attended Belcher. My daughter is doing her last year (2nd grade) and loves it. My husband and I think the faculty do a great job and when a problem or child needs special attention (reading/counseling,etc) they are right on top of it. I wish they did up to 5th grade.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

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.
