Bell Prairie Elementary School 5

Bell Prairie is an amazing school with amazing teachers. Our principal is a quiet, gentle woman whose calm personality is reflected in the entire school. Prior to Bell Prairie being built, my children attended another local school and I always found it a bit loud and crazy when I went there for anything. I think Bell Prairie is a wonderful school especially for shy or quiet children who may feel overwhelmed with a loud, seemingly unorganized school. We feel blessed that it was built so near our home!

Two years ago My husband and I began looking at houses in the Staley Farm area. The elementary school is Bell Prairie for this subdivision. We arranged a tour of the school as we have twin boys who were on the cusp of starting kindergarten. Bell Prairie is a beautiful school with a roof top garden and lots of natural light. It would be a nice museum but is a terrible elementary school. The teachers I met were politely cool. A couple even asked where my husband was employed at (a professor at UMKC in the Bio-Chemistry department. I'm sure the sporting of the the converses by the DOCTOR but them off a bit.) The principal was cold and uncaring. I am thrilled we took a tour! We also toured Nashua before deciding on Fox Hill, only two miles away from Bell Prairie but so much friendlier with students and learning involved. All that glitters is not gold.
