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.

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.

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.
