Belmont Public Schools - Schools


There are four public elementary schools in Belmont: the Burbank, Butler, Winn Brook, and Wellington schools. The new Wellington Elementary has just been completed. Two other public elementary schools, Payson Park and Kendall, were burnt down in the 1970s and 1980s, respectively. There is one public middle school, the Winthrop Louis Chenery Middle School (W.L. Chenery Middle School) and one public high school, Belmont High School. The W.L. Chenery Middle School's teams are all the Cheetahs, and Belmont High School's teams are all the Marauders. Belmont has a curious history of school fires; in the town's history, four schools have been partially or completely destroyed by fire, as was one former school (the Kendall), which was being used as an arts center at the time.

The transition from public elementary school to junior high school in Belmont occurs between the 4th and 5th grades, slightly earlier than in most communities. The W.L. Chenery Middle school, slated for demolition and rebuilding at the time, was destroyed by fire in 1995. When the new school opened in the fall of 1997, it expanded to include the 5th grade (which was previously housed in the town's elementary schools) in addition to grades 6 through 8.

Famous quotes containing the word schools:

    In America the taint of sectarianism lies broad upon the land. Not content with acknowledging the supremacy as the Diety, and with erecting temples in his honor, where all can bow down with reverence, the pride and vanity of human reason enter into and pollute our worship, and the houses that should be of God and for God, alone, where he is to be honored with submissive faith, are too often merely schools of metaphysical and useless distinctions. The nation is sectarian, rather than Christian.
    James Fenimore Cooper (1789–1851)

    You are a shameless, husband-hunting by-product of six of the most expensive finishing schools in the Western Hemisphere.
    Tom Waldman (d. 1985)

    Absolute catholicity of taste is not without its dangers. It is only an auctioneer who should admire all schools of art.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
