A quaint school with a bright future opened its doors in 1953 with only five classrooms and almost 200 students. On January 28, 1954, this school was named after Mrs. Mae Nesbit. Mrs. Nesbit came to Belmont in 1932 as a teaching principal. She then became a supervising principal and in 1942 she was appointed superintendent of Belmont Elementary School, now Nesbit.
In 1996, Nesbit received its first California Distinguished School Award.
In 2004, Nesbit celebrated its 50th birthday.
In 2008, Nesbit was honored for a second time with a California Distinguished School Award.
In 2014, Nesbit was honored for a third time with a California Distinguished Schools Award.
In 2015, Nesbit was honored with a San Mateo County's School Board Kent Award.
Nesbit has come a long way since it first opened its doors. There are now over 650 students in TK - 7th and SDC classes, as well as, 70 staff members who call Nesbit School their home.
Nesbit's Mission and Values
Nesbit School seeks to create a safe, nurturing and respectful learning environment where diversity is valued.
