Even the teachers seem to know their subject matter, some of them do not use multiple teaching strategies to reach students who come to school with varying skills and interests. They did not take the time to explore each student's way of learning (Multiple Intelligence). At the same time, they go and care only for the ones that are ahead leaving the ones that are behind. I think most of the teachers care for and support each student individually. Most of them communicate openly and clearly with parents and work well with their colleagues while some of them do not. Teachers who are devote and pasionate for their profession, they use as much strategies to help each of the students achieve in school not only the ones that are ahead.....
This school is good as well as the teachers. Their security is awesome. Yet, no afterschool activities for 6th graders.
This school is not bad the teacher are dedicated to the childrens learning .But the school is cheap and has very little afterschool activities also they have only a few electives
I changed my child from Doral Middle School to Paul Bell since Feb 2007 she is now in 7th Grade, and I am so happy. I do see that the teachers and the counselors do care about the kids progress and try to help them the best. They also encourage them to do better.
This school has progressively declined the past few years. There are few extracurricular activities and sports teams have disappeared. Schools complain of students not being fit and healthy enough, as well as uncontrollable in class, yet eliminate outlets for energy in the form of playing sports. What is happening at Paul Bell?
I am a student attending Paul.W.Bell Middle School. Im in 7th grade and so far all they do is teach us and give us great studying and learning startegies that actually really help us to study and we turn out to do excellent on our exams. The teachers at this school are the best teachers you can have they actually make learning fun. Its really a magnificant school. I love it !!!!
as a former student, I can tell you that Paul Bell has some really dedicated teachers. They have a large number of security guards, and although fights break about everyone in a while, security guards stop the fight in a minute (literally). Teachers are dedicated and show interest in their work, and Paul Bell Provides alot of extracurricular activities to get involved on. Principals are often overseeing students in the lunch room, and often seen talking to students. Dicipline is very much enforced in Paul Bell. With plenty of security guards, and strong enforcements of even the tiniest things like the dress code are in full effect. If your student wants to have a great time in PWB, then try and get him involved.
I am a former student from PWB, and from the experience that underwent there, I can say that it was quite challenging, from the teachers that is. It has a strong academic foundation and a very strong based faculty that is dedicated in providing better ways of challenging today's youth. Do keep in mind, their extracurricular's aren't all that great as well as their athletics.
I love Wesley Matthews Elementary. My three children have attended this school.
Teachers and staff very dedicated. Nice security job. Excellent band and orchestra.
I highly recommend this school. I have two children at Paul Bell. I'm very satisfied with the discipline and teaching done there. I have been very involved with my children's education and all their teachers have been supportive and concerned in helping out with whatever problem arises. My son's counselor has been the best he's ever had. I thank all the teachers for giving my children an excellent learning experience in Middle School. 'Teachers touch a child's life forever', and you all have certainly touched the ones of my children. Thank you.
