My son was part of the Twice Exceptional class at this school this past year and it has made all of the difference in the world for him. He has Asperger Syndrome and struggled at his former private school (Hope Christian School). He was mercilessly bullied by the other children at Hope and made to feel he was not intelligent by the teachers - he dreaded going. Only his fourth grade teacher tried to help him. His 5th grade year at Bellehaven was wonderful. He is confident, happy, and his grades have never been better. I am so grateful for the 2x program at this school. Thank you!!
Our family recentley moved to Texas, but my son use to go to school here. Lets just say that although the school he goes to now in Texas did better on its overall testing, we all miss this school so much. Its a smaller school and the parents are very involved. The teachers are great and I feel that they communicate so well with the parents. My son is only in kindergarten and he knew not only the name of his teacher and TA, but also the names of the librarian, PE teacher, nurse and other staff members and they all knew him by name as well (and no he was not a trouble maker). I was always impressed with how the staff made each student feel special and appreciated.
I couldn't ask for a better public school for my child. My daughter loves everything about this school and the staff. The entire staff is wonderful and caring. Parent involvement is highly encouraged. The PE teacher is the 2006 NMPTA teacher of the year, and greatly deserves the title. My daughter was in a 1/2 multiage class and it worked very well, she excelled and flourished in her class and easily ajusted to and quite enjoyed the rotation schedule.
This year they made the 4 and 5 grades combo classes. Also grades 1 and 2 are combined. Children are shuffled to other teachers for instruction in math and reading. They do not use bells. Great teachers. This is the school for you if you like every year to be different than the last. They always do something to mix things up.
