Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
The school is completely inconsistent in its disciplinary measures taken. Kid's will receive lesser or greater punishments seemingly based more upon how well the administrators like the kids and their parents.

Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
The school seems focused only on getting top scores on standardized tests. Parents of top performing kids who want to exempt their kids from standardized testing receive more resistance from the administration than parents of low performing kids doing the same.


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
There is no leadership at this school, simply a couple of women who follow and enforce policy when it pleases them.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
School leadership sets a terrible example for kids when they bully and ignore parents.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
The best teachers here seem to be hindered by the school administration.


Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
It's kind of hard to track your kid's homework assignments when it's all done online, but the teachers aren't required to update the online portal in a timely fashion.

If your student is an A or B student in the iStem program, then they are a valued member of the school. However, if your child is not a stellar student, then god forbid they have any sort of disciplinary incident, because the school administrators will use the Jeffco district bureaucracy as a bludgeon to get get rid of students and parents they deem undesirable. They will use all sorts of various rules and district policies against students & parents, but can't seem to follow them themselves. The female administrators there also seem to have a problem with dad's who are the primary educational contact for their family - they seem to be intimidated by men who stand up for their kids, while at the same time allowing momma bear's to get in their face and yell at them. Finally, the school resource officer from the local PD is little more than a playground monitor and a bully with a badge.

Bell has an awesome iSTEM program! It's exposing my daughter to concepts she would otherwise not be exposed to, if at all, until high school or even college.

This school is very innovative and open-minded school. If your kid is active, talkative, creative, and outside of the box thinking type. This is a great fit! Although the students do not have a lot of homeworks, but the school encourages individual projects and group projects which are essential to today's working world. The school also has excellent orchestra programs!

The ISTEM program at Bell was excellent for our daughter. She was in it during 7th and 8th grade, and is doing great at Golden HS this year. There was a real sense of belonging in ISTEM, because the students were in a smaller subset for all of their core classes. We were very happy with the teachers and the administration, and highly recommend Bell to anyone trying to decide between this good neighborhood school and Manning.
