    My daughter started kindergarten at Belmont this past fall and we are looking forward to 1st grade. My son will start kindergarten in the fall. We are so happy with the school we intend to stay in town to keep the kids there.

    This is a great school! My daughter has had a great start to kindergarten! More extracurricular activities would be nice to see. The parents who care are involved more should try to be involved for the sake of their child...you can only encourage so much!
