School of Excellence

Belinder is proud to be a National PTA School of Excellence for 2015-2017! Help us earn it again for 2017-2019 by completing the survey below!

National PTA School of Excellence is a recognition program that supports and celebrates partnerships between PTAs and schools to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being for all students and that Belinder Elementary PTA in collaboration with Belinder School Administration is working to achieve.

As a National PTA School of Excellence, families feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement.  The path to excellence starts with a joint commitment of PTA and school leaders to work together to achieve PTA’s National Standards for Family-School Partnerships.

Through implementation of the School of Excellence program, Belinder Elementary PTA and Belinder School will gain new ways to engage families in school decision-making, such as improvements to programs, practices and policies related to education, health, safety, or the arts.
