Map of Belle Morris Elementary School address.

July 11, 2011
I went to Belle Morris as a child, and as such, had high expectations. Unfortunately, they weren't met. My first child's kindergarten year was perfunctory at best. He was reading, writing, and comprehending at a 3rd grade level, but all I heard about his progress was the negative. My second child's kindergarten year was awful. The teacher seemed disinterested in teaching. She seemed to dislike children. The principal is nice, but seems overwhelmed. There is a strict uniform policy and I found that inhibiting. Polo style shirts are more expensive than t-shirts, and I don't understand the point behind it. Especially when the other schools in the area don't employee a uniform policy. The only positive I found was my first son's first grade teacher. I'll say Mr. Himmel was incredible! He personally interacted with each child, on their level, and taught each of them on an individual basis according to their specific needs. I thought he was wonderful. However, I'm moving before the start of the next school year, to a better school district. I hope to give my children a chance at a better education than I feel they would receive at this school.

Belle Morris Elementary School is a five star rating. My son has been taught so much. The teachers do know how to teach. When its report card time i have a happy smile upon my face every time. This is his last year with Belle Morris how nice it would be if this school was also middle school.

our child's experience at belle morris was wonderful. perhaps because they are inner city, the principal and teachers really love working with the parents for the good of the children. they do not make you feel like an outsider for asking questions, as do so many supposedly 'better ' schools. definitely a child friendly school where the focus is on the child, and helping him to be the best he or she can be.
