Bellefonte El School Ratings & Reviews

This is our first year at Bellefonte elementary school and we are very happy with our children's educational experience so far. The teachers are terrific and our kids can't wait to go to school. They have learned so much and the PTO does really awesome extracurricular activities. It is clear from these comments that things have really improved. There will always be kids who have sad home situations but it has not impacted the education. Super happy here!

My son has attended this school since Kindergarten. He is now about to complete 1st Grade, so my review only reflects until 1st grade. He is also an English Language Learner, having immigrated from Southeast Asia. He received excellent instruction in both grades, and had extensive support by both his reading teacher and his English as a Second Language Teacher, as well as his classroom teachers. In my experience, parental involvement in their child's education (or lack of) at this school negatively effects one's own child's success, but also inhibits the learning of others, as teachers are often required to deal with behavioral problems stemming from a child's home life and lack of parenting. The new principal is kind and working hard to erase some of the bitter taste left by the former principal. Previously, teachers were held strictly to a pre-packaged curriculum, but now are being given more professional freedom to exercise their expertise. This added trust in teacher ability is having a slow, but positive influence on faculty morale.

The Staff at Bellefonte Elementary is excellent. They are professional, caring, and dedicated. There are many challenges at Bellefonte but the teachers work very hard for your childern. I believe the school would rate better with parents, if the parents would involve themselves more in their childrens lives. Bellefonte is flawed by the lack of parental support and the Superintendants office.

Remember, that a lot of the children in the BES that are from downtown Bellefonte come from a low socioeconomic status where little has been expected from them or their parents for generations.

The majority of our experiences with the Bellefonte Elementary School have involved teachers who look the other way and show limited to no accountability. While the vice-principal is highly engaged in his duties, the principal lacks consistency, integrity, and a high ethical standard. There is a frightening lack of communication between the school and parents and no sign of any improvement. The educational programs are also disappointing and not challenging our children. Everything about BES from the extra-curricular activities to the holiday concert screams dysfunction and chaos. The testing scores reflect the entire perspective experience. I suggest if relocating to find housing outside of the Bellefonte Elementary school. Benner and Pleasant Gap are in the same district and have much better scores.
