This is our second year at Bel Air. We have decided to homeschool (and I have never been a. Fan of home schooling, so the fact that I've reached this point is surprising). We haven't been happy with the children's safety and pick up and dismissal, the lack of communication for the teachers, the inconsistent standards. Our kid reads about 65 words per minute. They told us he should be reading between 50-60 words per minute yet he wasn't up to par?!?! Doesn't make sense to me. Also, he never has home work and I don't have a curriculum so I have idea what they are doing in school until the test comes home.
Bel Air has caring teachers and staff. Their concern for the children's educational well being and personal growth is evident. The school has a welcoming and collaborative environment to both the kids and their families. .
Our school has an awesome staff, great kids and involved parents! We love Bel Air and we can't imagine sending our kids any where else!
My children are happy at this school and have consistently improved in their test scores.
Bel Air is a great school. All educators and ancillary staff are experienced, caring and supportive of individual student needs. The PTA is very active and supports educational goals through parent volunteers and providing necessary funds to supplement the classroom educational experience (i.e. Arts in the School, additional technology, RAH, etc.) The school secretary is AWESOME (no other way to describe her). Even though Minot is growing, Bel Air will most likely remain smaller in size because of physical location and property size. Go Bobcats!
On of my favorite places to Substitute Teach. Students are respectful and there seems to be few discipline issues. Teachers are organized and all staff are very welcoming. Very few distractions for the students throughout the school day.
Bel air elementary is a great school. The teachers and staff are so nice and easy to work with, not to mention the school secretary is wonderful, she treats all of the students like her own children!! The music teacher and choir group the Bel Air Bebops are amazing. My oldest daughter spent all of her grade school years here and was sad to say goodbye, she a wonderful experience. My other daughter loves it too. The PTA is great and keeps everyone involved and does many fabulous things for the students and teachers.
When we transferred in last year, the teachers, staff and parents made us feel welcome. We have absolute confidence our boys are getting the best education available. It is obvious the teachers and staff enjoy their jobs and school environment. We have no concerns about the children s safety while at school. Bel Air also has a very active PTA which shows the schools commitment.
Bel Air School has the most amazing and caring teachers. They welcome parents into the school with open arms. Couldn't ask for a better place for my children to spend their day!
Bel Air school has wonderful staff that is very focus on the education of its students. They also display great character and enthusiasm. They are always willing to go the extra mile, a great example is our wonderful music teacher who donates many hours for the school choir.
our children went to Belair and now our grandchildren go there. It is the best overall school in Minot. The teachers treat all the kids as their own and help them to reach their full level of development. Belair school is the best!!
Bel Air is a great school. My child has enjoyed attending Bel Air, and has learned a great deal from experienced staff. Music, physical education and library time are still included in the curriculum. Parents are very involved, our first grade class had 8 parents sign up as room parent! I would recommend Bel Air to individuals relocating to the area.
