From the Desk of Principal Belmont

Mr. Belmont, Principal

Welcome to Constellation Schools: Elyria Community School! Parents tell us we are the “best-kept secret” in Elyria. Let me take this opportunity to introduce our school to you and share with you who we are and why we exist as the premier public charter school in Elyria. I am honored to have the role of Principal at Elyria Community School, and I bring 16 years of experience with Constellation Schools to continue the success ECS has had in the lives of many children. Elyria Community School (ECS) serves students in grade K-8 at two separate locations! We are thrilled that we can offer you the opportunity to attend our outstanding school as a tuition-free educational option for the families of Elyria and the surrounding communities.

Constellation Schools: Elyria Community School is one of the very few schools in Lorain County that has received the Ohio Department of Education Momentum Award for THREE CONSECUTIVE YEARS in 2016, 2017, and 2018. On top of making sure our students meet and exceed their growth goals, our schools have exceptional learning environments that are created with both our PAX Program and also our PBIS program. Both programs teach core values and align with our PBIS slogan: This is where we R.O.A.R., which stands for, Respect. Ownership. Accountability. Responsibility.

We encourage you to learn more about Elyria Community School by calling our school office or stopping in for a tour at either our elementary or middle school locations.
