    Belmont Elementary - Nice school with dated facilities. Decent staff with a few exceptional teachers. Class sizes are huge - my daughter has 29 students in her class. Teachers like (need/expect) lots of parent classroom volunteers. Like other MoCo Elementary Schools - constantly changing targets testing and grading about every other year. I P ES for grades? Dopey! Teach to the MSAs so can't be particularly creative or innovative.
