Belmont has 16 classroom teachers and 11 paraprofessionals. In addition, the school has one resource room teacher, 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.
