Belmont Schools has encouraging teachers and principals. It also offers great meals. Many of its students don't realize what a great school it is, but if they were to go to a different school they would see how great Belmont Schools really is. Belmont Schools undoubtedly has a healthy, encouraging environment.
I currently attend belmont and although its not the best school in the world, i wouldn't want to attend any other school. the academics are outstanding, as well as the athletics. I feel like everyone is treated as an equal and has the same opportunity to learn. everyone is friendly and fun-loving. it can be boring, but the students find ways to liven up class-time. i am a strong Christian and I bring my Bible to school everyday. I feel free to share my faith with my classmates and they all have very open minds. We respect each other and work our problems out together. i love it very much and anyone would be lucky to be a Belmont Cardinal!
Belmont School is not what it used to be. I am a former student at the school. In the 1970's there was a caring atmosphere and learning was enjoyable. My child attended the school in the 2000's and we found it to be an extremely negative enviornment with a military style administration who curbed all enthusiasm within the student body. My child was an all A student and upon leaving Belmont he found school once again enjoyable and adjusted rather quickly to his new enviornment with a new found desire to learn above and beyond the norm. We are delighted we removed our child from this school and it is our desire to see Belmont move once again toward a creative, caring enviornment. Graduation rates are currently down and student moral is very low. Teachers are good morally and the new H.S. principal does seem to care more than the previous.
At the K-8 level this school was wonderful. After that, my children were made to feel 'unworthy' of being a part of a Level 4/5 school. It is disappointing that teachers and administrators at these grade levels bash the opinions, thoughts, and problems of teens. We all know that the teen years are very hard due to hormornal changes and peer pressure. My children were encouraged to quit instead encouraged to prevail. This proves that this particular administration cannot handle any deviance from their level 5 'status'. Didn't the children use to come first? I thought that is why teachers loved their jobs--to help and encourage learning and growth--not discourage it. Your kids would be better off in a level 1 school where they still count.
My child has attended belmont school grades k-4 and i am very well pleased. I am a christian parents and my beliefs are not compromised in any way, that is very important to me. I highly recommend belmont school.
