Love Bell School. The students, teachers and staff are awesome. This is a community not just a school.

CC Bell Elementary is, without a doubt,the most 'on the cutting edge' school that we've seen so far. Many of the staff have National Board Certification and are continuing to participate in all types of staff training in Reading, Math, and written communication. This school is child-centered and displays a variety of projects the children have made as well as the beautification of 2 courtyard areas, The children really do feel ownership of their school along with the support from the parents, the community, and everyone who works here. Drop by sometime and see the wonderful things the children are doing. Don't let the small size of the school fool you, as 'good things come in small packages!'

We love Bell Elementary! My daughter wasn't happy in her old private school and we felt she wasn't getting the education she deserved. Now she's happy and excelling. We credit the teachers and administration of Charles C. Bell! Hooray for Public Schools!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
