Blue Ribbon Exemplary School

Principal's Welcome 

Belmont Elementary serves 352 students in kindergarten through grade five. The principal of Belmont is Jeremy Karel. Belmont has 15 classroom teachers and 12 paraprofessionals. In addition, the school has two resource room teachers, a reading specialist, and teachers for music, art, and physical education. There is a psychologist, a speech teacher, a social worker, an occupational therapist, and a behavioral interventionist on staff, as well as a gifted and talented program.

Belmont is fully accredited by AdvancED, formerly the North Central Association of Schools and Colleges. Belmont has earned an “A” from Education Yes!, an evaluation program directed by the State of Michigan for the past five years.

All Rockford Public Schools are Blue Ribbon Exemplary Schools. Belmont received state and national recognition in the spring of the 1998-99 school year. We also received a Character Education Special Emphasis Award at the national level during the same year.
