F.E. Bellows is a FANTASTIC school. My children have been in three different elementary schools (we've moved houses a lot) so we know a good school when we see it. The staff are caring and capable; Principal Longabucco runs a tight ship. The class sizes are small and there are lots of extras (art, music, or library every day plus the opportunities to participate in enriched math, science fair, and orchestra). The school building is old but well kept, and there is a handsome new sport field. If I had one wish, it would be a language program for the younger grades, but that's about it. Oh, and it would be nice to have after school programs in the spring, too, but that's something for which the PTA needs to raise money. My child goes to school eagerly each morning and comes home smiling. Great job, everyone!
I love the one on one the students get, I love the teachers and staff, I think the school provides amazing opportunities, extra help groups, wonderful class trips, great after school clubs and the fact that the parents get to be so involved is so beneficial to our children
Both of my children went to Bellows and it is an amazing small school and the Rye Neck Community. Both the teachers and the parents really care and are very involved in all aspects of the childrens education. Good Luck Bellows...it would be an award well deserved!!!
Quality of programs is excellent. Good teachers and good students. The principal is very friendly and close to students and parents. the academic level is one of the best in the Westchester county in NY state. The size of the school is small enought for parents to get to know each other. The Rye Neck school district is best school disctrict in my experiend. All the students go to same elementary school, same middle school and same high school. This is almost like private school environment so that students know everybody by the time they finish high school. Yet the academic level and level of other activities are on the best in the Westchester. The academic level of F.E. Belows is even improving in the past few years and it got score of almost 100 out of 100 at the top. I highly recommend this school.
