    Belville is a great school with wonderful and caring teachers. They have a friendly staff and put school safety at the top of the list. My grandchildren go there and I feel they are safe and in a high quality school.

    I would NOT recommend this school to anyone. My child has attended Belville for 2 years and has been labled as having a learning disability by staff due to him not learning. My child is a smart normal child who is simply NOT being taught. I have seen kids enter this school with straight As and become B and C students within a year due to the subpar teaching and cirriculum. Check out the school's test scores and do your research before you make your decision. This school will enable your child.

    This School is excellent and teachers are very hard worker. My childrens are really learning there. Belville mean all about learning and also new principal is very hard worker and a very strong parson. She organised all the Belville classes and activities. I think this the challenging academic school we are very happy to choose this school.

    The schools entire curriculum is centered around math and reading. Rote learning is the primary way that both subjects are taught and creativity is not fostered. The school is more concerned with how students score on the end of year tests than they are with student development. !

    The school has a new principal. She is very good. My kids is very happy in here but also I do my best to know what is going on in his classroom.

    My children go to this school and I have had an amazing experience. I have a special needs child and the EC program is awesome. (EVERYONE involved is wonderful)! I also have a general ed child and I can say the same about the staff involved. I think it is amazing that everyone (not just their teachers) get to know my kids. It has been an amazing experience.

    My daughter is a kindergartner at Belville and she has a great teacher. The teacher has gone out of her way to help my daughter. She is above average and she is keeping her ahead by working on advanced reading and math

    My son is a student at Belville. I am very impressed with my son's teacher. However I am not impressed at all with the lack of curriculum in regards to History and Science. My son is in the third grade and it is a shame he is not taught any History and very little to no Science. The Administrative Staff(Priciple) and the School Board really need to take a look at this. It is truly sad.

    This school for my child has been a very negative experience and not at all helped him with his academics. His straight A scores from our previous top notch school I feel were a big reason and also the way the administration deals with children who misbehave and how they affect the children that are there and want to learn.

    This year will my son's 3rd year at this school and we love it! His teachers have been wonderful and the whole experience has been flawless!

  • (7 years ago)

    Unfortunatly my personal experience with this school has been quite negative. The constant teacher/staff turnover rate (51% a year according to the NC Report Card) has had disasterous results. It also seems that as each new administrator takes the helm the challenge of Belville's general failures (has not met AYP goals in three years) is just too much.
