The teachers usually slack off on their jobs and take many breaks. My teacher was always absent and left all of the work to her student teachers. All of the teachers were very hypocritical, and that is not a good role model for kids.
This is a very good school. Do not be discouraged by its ratings which prove opposite to reality. We went to school with 9 out 10 rating and were really surplice to find that Belmont Hills is much better school. The Belmont Hills has a lot of young, energetic and enthusiastic teachers with Master s degree who loves their work. They school funding is much better than other schools in Bucks County which helps to provide students with the latest gadgets and supplies.
Very little home work for the kids to do. My child does not like the food from the cafeteria. The before and after school program is very expensive. Too many days off, how can schools provide continum of education with so many days off.
The Quality of the math and reading program would be excellent if the student teacher ratio was better. The teachers would then have time to actually teach. Belmont Hills PTG has a few problems. At the first meeting of the year there was too much disorganization and too much emphasis on who was not joining the organization and not enough talk about the yearly activities. If the PTG became involved in the childrens academic programs maybe the school rankings would increase but then again they have organizational issues with the fall hay ride/ ice cream social therefore brainstorming for solutions to the academic challenges that our children face may be a difficult task. Safety is a concern. The children wait in an unorganized fashion on the school grounds as opposed to organized groups according to grade. It is difficult to tell which child is staying and which child is leaving.
