I think Belvidere is the best maintained elementary school in the district. The school is cleaner and brighter than the others. My son has attended Belvidere since 1st grade and every teacher has showed they care a great deal about his education.
All 4 of my children have attended Belvidere. The teachers and staff care a great deal about the students and do a good job. The principal, Ms. Means is one of the best principals this school has ever had. She cares for the students and the staff and it shows.
I am very happy with the curriculum. My daughter is reading on a 3rd grade level. I believe the school has a lot to do with it but I've encouraged her to read since she was 3 and LaPetite Academy is also very much responsible for her academic skills. Some of the after school activities during the workweek I disagree with because I'm often at times pressured to give in and I'm a single parent. An example is, Family night at Skateland on a Thursday night. I think this is wrong and I suppose it's cheaper since it's during the workweek. I think the PTA should structure activities for weekends.
