Hilton Bell Intermediate is a great school. All 4 of my children have gone to Bell. The teaching and office staff are outstanding! I also love the diversity of the students. I would consider Bell and upscale school!

I like the school. But the students their can get a little stuck up. I am a 7th grader, and I have sort of feel like an outsider, sometimes. But overall, its good. The teachers are amazing.

This school is so fun! Alamitos Intermidiate is the first school I ever went to in USA cause I came on 2011 but I feel like this is the best school I ever had. But bad the bad thing is they don't allow lockers. I had to carried my heavy books with me all days.

The teachers at this school are 400% better then my old middle school! i got an inter district transfer from Stacey to here and it has made my life so much better. I am on the dance team and we treat each other like a family. Ms. Adling donates so much time to help us be the best we can at competitions and makes sure we treat each other with respect. The principal is talking and having conversations with the students at lunch, and always has a smile on his face. I don't know one student who doesn't love him. My only complaint is that we have no lockers, but I'm used to it because Stacey didn't either. If your child is struggling in any subject, most teachers have after school help and or tutoring. The librarian is sweet and helpful, and my history teacher is amazing! I learned sufficiently this year despite his humor and hysterical behavior. He is my all time favorite teacher!! I looooooooooooove this school!!

The lockers were taken out of almost all the schools because of students in the past hiding drugs and other lovely things in them. Unfortunately to keep you kids safer the districts in California had to make a harsh decision. I'm not saying I completely agree with it, but I do understand it.

I go to Bell, and I think it is awesome!! It has WAY better school food than my elementary school, and they are sort of laid back: not so strict. I love Mrs. Sheppard! She's my pre-algebra teacher, and she is great! She always makes sure you understand everything!! Thank you Mrs. Sheppard, for being an awesome teacher!

This is a great school. The teachers there are awesome especially one teacher Ms. Danielle McLearie. She is very enthusiastic and loves to teach. She teaches English,Writing and Math. She is well educated and lets just say you cant fall asleep in her class. She is just a fun person in general and is always putting her best interest at hand. Thanx Ms. Mclearie

My son went here and I dread sending my daughter in a few years. The few good teachers they have, are persecuted for their uniqueness in teaching. They have a serious problem with their PE dept. I find many of the teachers to be inadequate as far as teaching and understanding children in general. I also had numerous meetings with teachers and the principle that did not result in any solutions. The fact that there are no lockers, forces the kids to carry heavy backpacks around causing back strain. Not my idea of a great school.

My rating is 2 stars. Based on my personal experience I do not believe the communication between parents and teachers or administration is adequate or sincere. I have made calls to the school and have not had a return call until the next day. I have asked for conferences with the teachers and have been unable to schedule. I have had too many frustrating experiences with this schools staff!

Great school. Good kids. Teachers actively involved in school improvements. Administrators are great and have a positive relationship with the community. Very little behavior problems and / or crime. Kids are performing well and school is well over the 800 API level.
