  • this school is exceptional especially with the involvement of student and parent interaction. My son loves his teachers for the past 2 years. the principal is very interactive and knows all the kids and parents by name.

  • Belcher School has an exceptional staff of Teachers that truly understand the meaning of children first. The teachers take a strong interest in developing the young minds of the children in their classrooms and have made a huge impact on my little boy. I am truly grateful for a school environment that makes my son want to go to school everyday. For the rest of the staff the support given to students and parents in this one little school speaks volumes
