Bellaire seems to have left a bad taste in some peoples mouths. I have had my daughters at Bellaire for 3 years. The teachers there are awesome! The music program (suzuki program) is next to none! The first year my daughter was there, they got a new principal and vice pricipal and things have greatly improved. The test scores have gone up. My only complaint about the school is that there is not much parking and the drop off/pick up area is very small. I feel as though my daughters are getting a great education and have many opportunities given to them

I had a son and daughter attend this school very recently. Son started Kinder and daughter in 6th grade. My son had a problem with ADHD and a speech disorder. I informed the school of my child's disabilities at the beginning of the year in hopes to get him started with help in those areas. However he was a Caucasian English speaking child and there are only 2 classrooms that offered English speaking curriculum.. My son had a problem sitting still in class but was overall a good student. He was constantly made out to be in trouble, singled out constantly as the bad child. He was sent to sit in the back of Spanish only speaking classes and given worksheets to complete that were in Spanish. The teacher would not give him snack during class because he had not sat still. Lunch just happened to be at 10:30 am and snack was given at 1:30 He was lost in the school one morning after parents were told not to walk our kids to class.They began trying to place him in speech at the end of the year as I finally received a call from the speech teacher who could barely speak English himself. My daughter was very bullied and threaten by other kids.The principals and counselor were never concerned.

Our daughter absolutely loves this school, her teacher, and the fellow students. Overall we've found this to be a great school community for our daughter, and the staff at Bellaire are dedicated beyond their duties to seeing the children excel.

its not that bad but the teachers seem to be uninvolved. My son had a hard time because he wasnt very recognized among the teachers.

I really dislike this school. This is our first year at this school and we have been there for only 7 weeks and I can not stand it. Her teacher is bad. The principal is very nice but I do not see her excitement making to the teachers. The only good thing about the school is the violin program. Mr Pugh is awsome. My daughter went from loving school to hating it. I can not wait until they build the new school next to my house.

The quality of academic programs is not the best, and sadly there is not enough parent involvement. They do music.

This school really lacks leadership. The teacher student ratio needs to be much lower. I am NOT impressed with this school in any way and would not reccomend it to anyone I know.

My child attended for Pre-K and I loved her teacher. She has been very supportive and offers a wide varity of ways to increase the effectiveness of her teaching program. They do encourage parent participation, though I think they are surprised when it arrives. Music is offered on a limited basis.

Ok everyone I think things are getting better! We now are trying to get everyone on the same page. The PTA is on the right track thanks to all the hard work from those dedicated people who have made the changes! And everyone is trying to communicate with everyone! The school is looking great inside now!We are trying to come together as a school instead of seperated. We still have our downfalls but as I said before if we want to change it we all have to work together.

I like alot of other parents am very concerned about my childrens education. Bellaire has some good things going on though I can't think of any at the moment. I read in another review about the teachers only caring about marks, I have found this to be true also. I always get reports on bad behavior but almost never get anything praising my child. I know there is stuff to be praised because he is on honor roll. I think that the teachers are concentrating too much on rules and regulations rather than learning. Yes I do believe that rules are needed but I also think that the kids are getting ruled and regulated to death! How are the kids supposed to have a good learning experience if they are scared of which marks the teacher is going to give them that day? I wonder if their own kids get the same treatement.

This school has been a huge disappointment. My child has only gone to this school for a semester, but thank goodness he is a 6th grader and will be moving on to Jr High. The school does not have an honors program, only a gifted program which meets briefly each week to encourage creativity. I've never seen any information about the PTA. No hand soap in the boy's bathrooms.

My child had the worst teacher this year.. all she was interested in was 'marks'... I am so glad this school year is over! I do like the Suzuki Strings program and Mr. Pugh though!

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
