I agree with previous statements, but would like to add that I tried to contact the teacher, principal, superintendant as well as the school board. I never recieved a response from any of them. If you are considering moving to the Belen area, I would advise against it if you have school age children unless you plan to send them to private school.

I agree with the previous comments. Much to do is centered among the staff and the children get only lost in the shuffle.

My son attended this school for one year after transferring from a gifted program from another district. This school failed him horribly. He was actually given Highlights magazine picture finds as a second grader. He brought home work he had done as a k student at his old school. Communicating with his teacher was near impossible. After six months at the school, she continued to misspell his name. Very low attention paid to math and science (not even a Science Fair) The school has inadequate facilities for protecting the children from the Sun and has a poorly managed 'uniform' policy. There seemed to be a lack of interest in promoting diversity as well. I contacted the principal and got no response. As a licensed teacher, I was gravely disappointed in this school and would not recommend it.
