My daughter was bullied to such an extent that I had to pull her out of Bell. Since the principal change the school has gone from great to horrible. My daughter was scared to go to school and the school took the side of the bully. They said that there was nothing they could do.
I love the school and the teachers but some stuff is ridiculous like the kids cannot wear Mohawks that is crazy your telling a kid that they cannot be themself or my daughter cannot spike her hair when it is short in the back I do not understand this they have taken uniforms way to far also a talent show since when do you have to be chosen to be in the talent show if it is appropriate then why not let them in it you might as well tell them that you did not like it.
Teachers are over worked and under utilized at this school and it shows in their teachers attituteds and the childrens test scores.
My grand-nieces are attending Bell Elementary. The oldest is now in 2nd and has been at Bell since the 2nd semester of Kindergarten. Two weeks after she was enrolled she was moved to the advanced classes, in which she is still enrolled. The youngest just started Kindergarten and we have high hopes for the results the teachers will get from her while attending Bell. I have spoken to the teachers, nurse, office personnel and principal and they have always been patient, kind and friendly. Dealing with Bell Elementary is definitely a positive experience.
