We just moved to the area and after researching the area public and private schools enrolled our children here. We are glad our decision is affirmed daily.Test scores are the best.The principal is outstanding and the teachers are well educated and in tune with each child.Belmont has so many advantages over private schools with the same size class.Teachers are constantly striving to improve their abilities and work as a team with parents.Teachers are interested in what is and is not working and willing do what it takes to give the BEST to each child.We have friends who send their kids to the private school a couple doors down.It is clear the school is not even considered competitive with Belmont.Kids at Belmont can pray and talk about their beliefs if they want.The parents and kids are real Christians, Belmont doesn't have the bully problem the private school does either.
The principal, teachers and staff are AWESOME! This reason this is a NATIONAL BLUE RIBBON school is obvious.The principal is top notch. The teachers have so much education and training and are always meeting to review how their students are doing and how they can improve learning. These kids will be prepared for the real competitive world we live in today. The parent involvement is astounding. Te parents are not concerned about jus ttheir own children, but want to see all children succeed and have fun.
I just transferred my son to Belmont after 3 years from the Catholic school due to professional, academic & curriculm deficiencies. The same elementary teachers referenced below are still not competent. My son was independently tested this summer and is 2 years behind in reading! I had to pay for tutoring over the summer that cost more than the 3 years of tuition I paid. Because these teachers continue to be deficient and have not been held accountable there are many families that have switched since 2004. My son loves & learns at Belmont! The Princpal is top notch! The teachers are highly qualified, care about and treat all students and parents with respect. The curriculm is cutting edge and the environment is more Christian amongst the students & staff here then the school he came from. Kuddos Mr. Armitage & teachers for a exemplary blue ribbon school!
