I love this school, the staff and teachers are amazing, it's like one big happy family, my granddaughter Elizabeth loves it. Mr. Abeal is a hands on principal who truly loves the kids and the kids love him! Thanks to all of her teachers, she was fortunate to have Mrs. Tango for 2 years and now Mr. Cousins, they have been wonderful! What a terrific school, thanks to all the staff!
Its local many pupils can walk to it, its a real neighborhood school ! You don't see many of those around anymore !
West Belmar is Wall's best kept secret and being the smallest of all Wall's schools, it's tight nitched group of teachers, aids and parents make the most of an amazing community! The principal knows every kids name and something about them and is always out on the playground in the morning hanging with the kids... I am so proud to be in the neighborhood and be a West Belmar resident. I grew up in South Wall... but now live on the other side... and am here to stay!
Teachers who care for and get involved with the students. A school who cares for the community! An excellent educational curriculum
If you live in Wall West Belmar is the best elementary school to enroll your children in.. The principle is great,awesome teachers,caring staff,small class sizes,(14 in my sons third grade class!)We might be moving this year out of Wall and West Belmar is the only thing I will truly miss about Wall..You deserve a 9 out of 10!!
Couldn't agree more with last post!So proud of West Belmar,staff and principle and education are great!My child is very happy here and so are we as parents.
I am almost afraid to tell what I really think of this school as the word will really get out how great it is! The school is so great. My daughter has come out of her shell and become a great student. I have 2 more children that will attend W. Belmar and i couldnt be happier. The teachers and principal are the best! The only thing I wish is that the kindergarten was full day!! If the bill passes in Sept..it may happen!! vote yes!
I am surprised this school has been rated a 5,I would rate it a 9 out of 10. Principle truly cares about students,staff and parents,Thats what makes such a good school,because of quality teachers and excellent leadership.
West Belmar Elementay is known as 'the best kept secret' and the secret is getting out> The news is that this is a place where great teachers are teaching and children are learning. the principal is truly your 'pal'! The former principal was known as 'Papa Bear' and Mr. Abeal is also pretty special in the eyes of his 'cubs'. The West Belmar Bears are full of spirit and pride. The 'small school with a big heart' takes on big projects in reading, math, fundraising, and community involvement.
This school is excellent. The teachers are helpful, understanding, and very caring about their students. There is always someone there to help and guide the students, there circulm is excellent. They have many problems geared to help the child. The principle is extremely interactive with the children and know most children by there fist names. I have 2 children in this school and I believe they are having a excelllent quality of education that you just don't find in many schools.
