The northern Brunswick county school system consistently excels with Belville Elementary receiving an average of 4 out of 5 stars from the community on GreatSchools.org. One parent described the elementary school as, “A place my child loves to go to everyday. The teachers truly care and that starts with a great principal which Belville surely has. We have been very impressed with the communication from the teachers about our child’s progress and we love how the school comes together for so many community events.” Once a child has enjoyed learning at Belville they will feed into Leland Middle and then into North Brunswick High.
