    The quality of Belvedere El is really unique. The community there is very cooperative and willing to help out in many ways. Teachers and administraters at this school are easy to talk to and very understanding. I would also like to focus around the supply room. It is very organized and well managed. The person responsible for this is Juan Sanchez. He is a very hard working person willing to help out others in time of need.
