    After spending 17 years in the Belleville school system I have started over and my 5 yr old attends Belleville School #3 by choice and I am VERY VERY VERY happy about that. Our magnet school is Belleville School #9 and though it is a small school and where I started school it leaves ALOT to desire. I am not happy with the Principal there she's egotistical and not a very good role model for the children. I am so glad Belleville has School #3 as the slogan states 'SCHOOL 3 IS THE PLACE TO BE'

    School Number Three is an excellent school. As for the other review dated in 2005 we have a new principal she is wonderful and dedicated. This school has made all the NCLB Benchmarks as well as passing the NJ ASK all grades. If you are moving to Belleville this would be a great school to send your child to. It also has a very involved Home and School Association. The parents and teachers are dedicated to the children and the students are succeeding at this school.
