10 Parent Reviews for Belmont Day School

My son is a HS student after spending his elementary years at BDS. He greatly enjoyed his years at BDS but he now seems astonished that he actually has to work hard for his grades and he sometimes resents putting in the needed effort (he's a B+ student). He agrees that his attitude was instilled by ...  Read more

The academics here are not that strong. It is an ok school. If you child is a high achiever or an honors student, they will not be challenged. I don't think they value those who think out of the box.

The teachers do a good job of focusing the children's abundant energy rather than stifling it. A great school for smart, active kids. Graduates of the school are prepared to ...  Read more

A small, supportive and intimate school. Focus is on character building and academics. Music, art and technology options all first class and enriched by accomplished teachers who love what they do. Dedicated leadership with strong influence over all aspects of daily life.

School teaches consideration and respect as well as strong academic work. My young children are learning not only to write letters but also how to construct a meangnful written argument. They are learning how to do fractions thru cooking. Children learn reading and math in small (6-8 kids per teacher) ...  Read more
