Outstanding school! People move back to Bellmawr just for the schools. Area's of improvement; more money should be spent on the Arts. All people seem to care about is sports and academics, not that they too aren't important but the town and schools have an abundance of talented and creative individuals that could flourish. in order to educate well rounded students we must give them the best.
