    I absolutelly love Belmont Middle School. I am a wildcat at heart and always will be no matter what. Mr. Outlaw needs to deffinately lighten up but all the teachers and staff are some of the best people you could ever ask to work at a school. Every single teacher that i have had at Belmont Middle is Totally Awesome. The teachers love to have fun so u learn stuff everyday but have fun while learning. BMS has a great sports program we are always making it into like championships and everything. So if you are looking for a school where ur kids can learn laugh and grow you have checked out the right school. BMS totally rocks!!!!

    My son attended Belmont Middle for 2 yrs. before we moved.Although Mr. Outlaw {the assistant principal} needs to lighten up I think this is a very good school. The school is very clean there are resource officers always around the teachers seem to genuinely take an interest in the students. Every time I talked with my sons 2 main teachers { Mrs. Cauble and Mrs. Ammons} they really new what my son was doing...who he was friends with the actual books he was reading what his strengths were in school{math} who he sat with at lunch. This was refreshing considering these days all students are to other teachers at other schools are test scores and potential problems. - Aaron
