    "Pluses; - strong head of school - Cozy culture - Very enthusiastic parents - Some really good teachers Minuses; - Head of school is leaving (as is head of upper school) - Pretty protected. Not a lot of grit development - Parents seem to be more into the private school thing than true quality of education. - Inconsistent teacher quality (some pretty mediocre ones) - No capability to identify or treat any kind of learning disability- you are on your own"

    "I have sent three very different children to BDS. Each has been nutured, pushed and encouraged to be self-motivated learners, while also being happy, successful, and nice. The school concentrates on the things you would expect -- strong academics, arts, and athletics -- and also on character, something that is important but not always emphasized in schools. Each of my children has gone off to wonderful independent secondary schools where they have felt well prepared and have done well socially and academically. Two have completed high school and moved on to colleges where they are self-motivated, engaged members of the community. As a parent who likes to be involved in my children's education, I have found BDS to be welcoming of parent involvement in many aspects of the community. We have been very pleased with the school head, faculty and coaches."

    "Wonderful school. Very strong academically, while being supportive and community oriented. My daughter loves going to school, loves learning and is challenged. She is very smart, curious, and social. The teachers and staff continue to surprise me with the lengths they go to for student development. We are so happy with this school."

    "Belmont Day School provides an incredibly thoughtful, dynamic, and rich approach to the education of our children. All students, in all grades, learn public speaking skills in class, in school assemblies, and for special presentations. All students learn leadership skills with the expectation of providing and receiving regular feedback to/from both classmates and teachers. All students learn communication skills and how to be good citizens of the school and larger community. They are provided with a safe environment and a way to learn the necessary soft skills to communicate and lead effectively. We appreciate the strong curriculum, the resources, the ability to serve different types of students, the athletic program, and a small student to teacher ratio. Lastly, we are impressed with the strong communication and interaction among faculty, students, administration, and parents, resulting in better decisions and quicker resolution of problems."

    "I have two children that have been students at the Belmont Day School and, while my children are very different from each other, they have both benefited greatly from the Belmont Day School. In addition to learning the basics reading, writing & arithmetic (which are taught very well) they have learned how to work in groups, how to conduct original research, how to analyze and think critically about information, and how to communicate effectively. My children have studied The Odyssey, Supreme Court decisions on civil rights, the 12-bar blues as a form of poetry, and genetics--the thoughtful teachers deliver a compelling curriculum. On top of its very strong academics, the school offers enriched athletics and arts programs. All of this wonderful learning is wrapped up in a bigger lesson about how to be a good member of a community. I think that it might be because of this strong focus on community that such a disproportionately large number of the Belmont Day School graduates, including my graduate, go on to take leadership roles in their high school governments and high school clubs and the Belmont Day School graduates are at all of the best high schools in New England."
