Open Quote Bel Pre is a wonderful school with state of the art facilities and great teachers. The Kindergarten staff is top notch, nearly all the teachers in the school are Highly Qualified according to MCPS. The school has great events throughout the year including character night, math night, literacy night and so on.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
