My son has been going to Bellaire since Kinder. I love it! The teacher, staff and principal are all wonderful people who care about each child who attends. My husband and I have bought a house out of the district but refuse to send him else where. Mrs. Garcia is his second grade teacher and she is a great, insperational person.

Mr. Rodriguez (PK-3) and his assistants have been wonderful. I know working with mostly 3 year old is quite a challenge, but they have done a wonderful job with my son and with all the other students.The district menu though has to be improved. Cinammon roles and a cookie with cereal for breakfast?! That has to change especially if we promote healthy eating habits!!

Mrs Lucas is a wonderful 2nd grade teacher. The councelor Ms Qiuones helped with my child go back into a classroom after a year and a half. So if your looking for patience you will find it at Bellaire Elementry. Mrs. Luby is also a great 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Whitley is a great kinder teacher. These teachers helped my child each year to trust others don't just read about it go to the school they will show you the different casses or areas maybe ask for an appointment for a tour.

Having two sons one who attended and one that is now at Bellaire I can't express how happy I have been with the staff. Working full time I rarely have a chance to visit the school but when I do the staff always makes me feel comfortable when I make surprise visits. My boys never complain about going to school and it makes it much easier knowing that they enjoy going to school. I think the school is great and keep up the good work! Debra R.
