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.
