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.

My parents moved to Belmont because they understood the endless possibilities they were going to be providing for their kids. At times it can be hard to appreciate the education I have received as it is overshadowed by a n immense work load and lots of pressure. But, with this pressure comes preparation for college rare to find in most schools. When applying to schools I find I am noticeably ahead of others due that the representation that the school system yields. From friends in college, I have constantly heard of the much appreciated preparedness that the school provides. Regular conversations of how they do not need to stress over essays and balancing the college work load because they have been training to do so for the four years prior. As I look back I now see the magnitude of my parents decision to move here twenty years ago. It has put me in this favorable position I am in today as I prepare to select between prestigious schools.
I enjoyed elementary school, but found middle school boring. Belmont is a very homogeneous town, and those who were of lower socioeconomic status were often excluded from opportunities or experiences both in and out of school. Kids also formed very exclusive cliques which were difficult to break into. I found that gender stereotypes were strictly enforced if not by faculty then by the students themselves; people who didn't conform to gender norms were ostracized and excluded. Middle school was not challenging at all, and unless your parents knew the right people there was no way to get out of boring classes. High school was stressful at times but it prepared me well for college.
