    The sign no the front of the schools proclaims it to be 'The Best Little School in Town' and it is. From the principal on down to theteachers and other support staff there is a true sense of community here. There is only one class per grade so the personalization is such that each student gets the proper amount of attention without being smothered. I have seen much in this building in the last year and would recommned anyone considering a move to Belleville to work to live in the this part of the town. You'll appreciate it.

    This is one of the best schools in Belleville. It is so small that the staff know all the kids in the building. The Principal is approachable and always concerned that children are doing as well as they can. My daughter was very happy here and I was happy with her education.
