    "Having your kid want to go to school does not mean you are at a Good School! like the last person who wrote about this school and gave it a 5 star might benefit from actually going there (3-5th grade). She might learn some basic punctuation, if she is lucky enough to get one of the "good teachers". While she says her son is enjoying going to school , what is he LEARNING? I hope other viewers recognize the lack of experience/knowledge and discount this review. I think people should wait until they have more information before writing a review and or not do it to make friends in the PTA. Another good thing to ask yourself is, do you want your kids to go to school with kids who have parents who do things like this?"

    "We couldn't disagree more with the rating comments in the reviews. Pati Purcell runs school that has incredibly high morale across the staff and students. We are not big donators but we have always gotten the best teachers. Our 5th grader absolutely loves Bel Aire and his experience there has taken him from a kid that "hates school" to one that looks forward to each school day. We can't say enough about happy we are to be at this school and we hope that our experience at Del Mar will be just as outstanding."

    "I went to this school many years ago. Besides the after school model airplane class, everything else was terrible. I was bullied and pushed around and nobody did anything. I couldn't stand the kids that went there so when I finally graduated, I made my parents put me in a private school. Luckily, that worked out. It was far and away the worst school experience of my life. I don't remember any of my teachers to this day."

    "Fully agree with the post right below. Why isn't principal Purcell held accountable? She does not deserve to be an administrator, especially for children! Most parents I Know try to duck under her radar, even when they feel the school and teacher quality are going downhill fast. The other schools in the district, reed and del mar, are still great though. I guess 3 years isn't that long?....."

    "If I could, I would give this school a zero. While this school has some really good teachers it is poorly run by the administration. I think the principal is unethical, incompetent, and a bully. I'm not sure how she can ignore emais from parents month after month and keep her job without a response. However, after finally meeting with her personally, I realized most parents are scared of her and therefore don't bother. She is known to be a beligerent person and they also worry their kids will be treated unkindly and not given band aids or a part in the school play. Even though the PTA claims responsibility, she is completely in charge of it! They also worry if they complain that their kids will be given the worst teachers in the school. The music, art and math program are non-existent. Kids who get good teachers and parts in the school play are most likely big donors, untalented or poor students. The math/reading program is completely focused on the underachieving kids. The only thing we liked about this school was the few hard working, kind and talented teachers but with the interaction of the administration, they were never allowed to do the right things."
