Belmont Public Schools are such amazing school in Boston! They have a lot of varity of students and teachers who support each other all the time. They have a strong connection between teacher and student individually. Everytime whenever the student need in help in any problems, they are kindly and take care of those problems as like family. Also, they have a lot of sports and clubs that student might be interested in. And these activities helps to enroll a good college also.

I really like the Belmont School system. I have been here my entire life and have gone through all Belmont public schools. Each one offers great opportunities to the students and allows each and every student to find a way to succeed at their level. Although the high school needs to be rebuilt, it is still a very good school that prepares us, the students, to succeed in college and in life, although I wish they offered more classes that will benefit students in the real world.
The classes are challenging, the students are (mostly) smart, and the courses prepare you for college level work.

There is an over-emphasis on football, but everyone knows our team is a joke. If you want to root for a winning team, root for women basketball.

Extracurriculars are ridiculously expensive. the fee for after school acuities is $150, and the fee for sports is $450 for the first sport $325 for the second sport, and $150 for the third sport.

Its easy to find your group here, no matter how weird you are.
