    "This school has seen some incredible changes over the past year and a half, all for the positive. The atmosphere is open, friendly and inviting. Parent involvement is welcomed and sought after. The new Principal is going out of her way to bring more activities to the school which include the surrounding community. Participation is up and encouraging. The feeling around the school is that the teachers are on board with the new direction and the upbeat atmosphere is apparent. Test scores are improving and the curriculum has been fine tuned to insure that students are receiving the best possible education. This school is finally beginning to realize it's real potential."

    "I have been familiar with Bellair Elementary since the late 80's. Both of my children attended school there and now my granddaughter. I have seen a lot of changes over the years. The teachers all seem very happy there and ready to do their jobs. The office personal is very friendly and answer any questions that you may throw out to them. About a year ago we got a new principal and I can say she has really turned this school around. Things seem to be running smoothly."

    "Since my arrival at Bellair as its new principal (I began in August 2012), I've met wonderful students, parents, and staff members. We want very much to bring the best education to all children while taking good care of them while they are with us. It saddens me when someone has a negative view of the school. My door is open - come talk to me if you feel that way. I am truly grateful for the many, many wonderful, supportive parents, grandparents, extended family members who allow us to work as their partners. Education is the best business to be in - I can't imagine anywhere else I would want to be."

    "This school got a B from the ADE, but it's just barely a B and I can explain why. The teachers are poor and the discipline in the school is non-existent. This school does not attract top level teaching talent and your children will suffer as mine have because of this. On top of that, the previous principal was a organizational disaster. That trickled down through the entire school in terms of discipline and curriculum. The new principal is not off to a great start, either. This will be my kids' last year at the school as I'll be variancing them to either Sierra Verde or Legend Springs. Honestly I'd take just about any school in the district at this point. The only slight hat-tip I can give the school is to the longevity of their kindergarten teacher. She is a good teacher, but is given a sad excuse for a curriculum to get our kids through. My kid left kindergarten unable to add or subtract because they learned shapes for the first 4 months of the school year! When a 5 year old is bored in kindergarten you're doing it wrong!"
