Bell Top School 5

Bell Top has a warm, friendly community atmosphere. The principal is very knowledgeable in curriculum and instruction, has great leadership skills and genuinely knows and connects with all the children. This school has addressed anti-bullying so well and creates a positive school climate by teaching character education and celebrating it by honoring students for their achievements as role models within the school community. The teachers are very professional and hard working, always looking to meet the needs of ALL children and help them grow and succeed! It's truly an amazing place!

The pros of this school is that it is a wonderful community. The families are wonderful and very supportive of one another. It is also a very small school so children know one another and feel at home. The cons are that many of the teaching practices are out of date and that there are too many weak teachers for such a small school. Many teachers are also not parent friendly. There is a new principal as of 2008 so perhaps he will work on these issues.

My daughter has attended 3 different schools this year; 4 total in the last 2 years. This is the first school she has wanted to go to school each morning and be excited about it. She cried the last day of school because she did not want to go on vacation

It is a close net school, very involved parents group, very good leadership from the school administration.

This is a wonderful school both academically and athletically. The teachers are the best around! Unfortunately, the recent hiring of a new principal has seen a major decrease in 'happy' children. This principal is very clique-ish and her favoritism is obvious. The warm fuzzies have been replaced by cold pricklies. Hopefully, this will change with time.
