We believe that a foundation of excellence in education is a diverse community where children and adults understand, appreciate, and celebrate differences. Through the process of recognizing and discussing differences, we discover similarities, shared values, and common goals. These shared values and goals are woven into our curriculum, which fosters critical thinking skills and empathy in our students and prepares them to enter a diverse world with responsibility and pride.
Belmont Day School is a pre-kindergarten to eighth grade independent school founded in 1927 by a group of parents committed to providing children with an excellent academic foundation and many opportunities for creative expression. Our six values of honesty, caring, joy, responsibility, respect and excellence permeate the culture for adults and children. We are a desirable place to work because of our colleagues and the reputation of the school.
Belmont Day's commitment to diversity is central to the strength of its educational program — a program that is dedicated to academic excellence and intellectual discipline where students feel secure, experience the joys of learning, and know their accomplishments are valued.
