Belfast Elk Garden Elementary School Reviews
Belfast Elementary School is one of the best schools in our area. From Pre-K to 3rd grade the teachers are one on one and dedicated to our children. I could not have chosen a better school to place my children. As for the principal, she is very much in control and does her job well. If anything negitave is to be said about this school or it's staff then the problem has most likely occured with the parent. Many parents will not stand by the teacher for the best interst of the child.
School is average. Teachers take a lot of breaks. Students play alot and are not challenged. Principal is not in control of the school. Certain students get away and even encouraged to cheat. Others struggling but honestly trying to grasp concepts are pushed to special ed.
