Upcoming Workshop Will Ask Community Members for Feedback on Specific Roadway Options
The Belmont-Redwood Shores School District, in collaboration with the City of Belmont, will host a public workshop to share proposed improvements to the intersection at Tahoe Drive and Ralston Avenue and along Ralston Middle School. Potential improvements are intended to ease traffic congestion during school drop-off and pick-up, improve pedestrian walkways, and enhance public safety through signalization and signage. All community members are invited and encouraged to participate!

Thank you to School-Force, our volunteers, parents, and students for making the October 2 Save the Music Festival such a success!
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 575 students in TK - 7th and SDC classes, as well as, 50 staff members who call Nesbit School their home.
