    Please excuse the typo.I mistakenly typed welcomed.but I actually meant (I felt unwelcome whenever I entered Belmont Runyon.)

  • (3 years ago)

    Belmont Runyon is a great school but need structure and more parental involvment great teachers great parents make school alive and students achieve higher grades

  • (4 years ago)

    Children make the schools. Some children are behavior problems and some parents don't care. They see the school as a babysitting service. This keeps the other children from learning. Discipline starts at home. Aggressive children should get help.

    This school needs a lot of improvement. Correction It needs to be imploded starting with the administration.

  • (6 years ago)

    If you look for a school that looks nice this is a place for you. Teachers and acacdemics can be better administation can definitly be better. As a Working parent the office staff does not value your time at all. Every on acts to busy to acknowlege guest in the office; while you wait...and wait....The only time you feel welcome in the school is walking out of the office straight to the parent liason who is great.
