Bell has listened to the community and amplified their programs to a great degree. At this point rumors from 15 years ago that linger are the only impediment to a higher score on this website. That is unfortunate, because Bell is definitely above average. There are 150 students on the wait list to get in.

Where can I find a school calendar for 2014-2015 school year? I couldn't find it on the school web site.

Bell is a great school for everyone! My daughter is in 7th grade and is happy and thriving in middle school! What more could a parent want? Bell offers something for everyone. All the teachers and office staff I have met are really friendly, they have a free after school Interact Club that does community service work both inside and outside of the school, a new sports program that started this year and great electives! I went to 1 PTA meeting and was very impressed with the PTA board and their close relationship with the school. Good things are happening! Happy student - happy parents!

For the most part, the teachers have been great at this school. My daughter struggled with Math and Science in the past, but this year has really become excited about both subjects and is doing extremely well. I credit her turn around to her teachers.

This is not an academically oriented school and that includes the Honors iSTEM program. Teachers and staff are mostly friendly, but there is little to no classwork or homework, expectations are low, and serious/curious students are very bored.

I've been impressed with Bell's ability to challenge students of all types. Rigor has recently improved with a stronger honors program and now the introduction of the iSTEM option program for all students. A great environment, low levels of bullying and really strong teachers.

Not a great school. Not a good school. Average all the way. Kids are rude. Dress code is loose. Parent meeting to draw in prospective parents was abysmal.

This is a very impessive school and I have learned A LOT from all of my teachers and staff. The staff is GREAT. The only thing that I don't like about my school is how the vise princaple takes over and acts like the princable doesn't "run the show". But other than that, if you are looking to enroll your kid at this school you are making the right choice.

I am so impressed with how much this school goes above and beyond to assure a student succeeds. From clubs to literacy they are on track for the 21st Century learner. They offer mentors to help students from a nearby retirement community, students at School of Mines mentor and their new mission of 'Literacy..your rope to the Summit' is outstanding. Their honor program will prepare any college bound student the tools to succeed. Teachers work countless hours of their own to help students succeed. Parents are always welcome to help or observe classrooms. Bell office has a very welcoming enviroment.

This school is okay, but I don't think its reputation is really deserved. For one, the principal seems to leave everything to the vice. I'm in 7th grade and I enjoy all of my teachers, but some of the staff (not the teachers) act like they hate their job.

Also, the teacher quality varies quite a bit. While attending Bell Middle as a seventh grader, i had no problem with any of my teachers, but when i had reached the eight grade, my teacher quality varied. I had problems with specifically one teacher, who all in all refused to actually grade a single piece of work, having us (the students) or her teacher 'aides' grade tests, which promoted cheating and falsely improving in the class room.

I have a gifted student and chose to send him to Bell rather than our local school that has a gifted program. He is in the honors program and has been appropriately challenged and has enjoyed his classes (pretty impressive for an early adolescent!) I give Bell a 9 out or 10

Bell Middle School is an okay school. It could be better, but I have not learned very much. Also, most of the stuff we went over, I had learned before.

There are no organized sports programs at this school even though they have excellent sports facilities.
