    Getting tired of Belen Middle School singling out my daughter constantly calling and saying that she has been late to class or not at school strange how she has homework from the day and wasn't even there. When she is threatened or bullied nothing is done but if she stands up for herself she treated like a criminal. It needs to STOP!

    Belen Middle School is a very good school. They have a great and supportive staff. I appreciate the effort they put into my education.

    I am a former student from Belen middle school. Im in the 8th grade I had to be taken out of school because a girl had threatened me. Also I had my Ipod stolen...right out of my backpack...IN CLASS! The students texted and talked in class and nothing was done. They would swear and cuss at the teachers! and the teachers acted as if it was normal. well it's not. Belen Middle school is horrible. It's not safe. and they dont teach. H-O-R-I-B-L-E

    We just moved here from CA and all I can say is the schools out here in valencia county are horrible! My son is breezing by in school being taught things he already learned in 5th and 6th grade! On the otherhand all the staff seems to be really nice and try and help where they can its just sad that the Valencia county has such a crapy school system for our children........
