Great staff! Especially the teachers. My daughter spent kindergarten and 1st grade at Bell Manor and we are very pleased! Picking up and dropping off has become more organized and less time consuming, though 1st graders are picked up in the front, so I can only speak from my experience. School is out at 2:50, I'm in line at 2:52, she's in my car by 2:56 on average. Parent involvement is at a all time high and you feel apart of the community when you participate at their many events throughout the year! Our daughter has excelled in reading and writing thanks to the curriculum and caring teachers. I never write reviews, but after seeing our school at a 7, I had to put my experience with this school out there. Also, the principal is very sweet and she cares about her students!

When we first moved to the HEB district I don't feel that we received the warmest welcome I assumed we would get transferring from another city many hours away. Came in mid-year and they assumed we new everything when in fact we knew nothing about their system and it was nothing like what we had come from. My child was in kindergarten and first thing we were told was that she needed to catch up. No problem. She actually did that and passed many other students in reading surprising the teacher. We continued at Bell Manor for first grade also. Much better experience for my child thanks to her teacher. My problem here was that no one was as friendly as I thought they should be and I never saw the principal nor were we ever introduced in the year and a half we attended. Parking at this place is never fun! They have more grass than parking spots available for picking up your child and that was a major pain, especially if you did not arrive 20-30 minutes earlier than they let out. I am thankful my child was interested in a music program that allowed us to do intra-district transfer to another school. We are MUCH happier now and feel as though we fit in better at the new school.

They need stronger pick up rules for the children. Anyone could walk away with a younger child with the disorganization that takes place when the younger children are walked out of class.

The staff at Bell Manor is outstanding - I know my child is receiving top notch education and the care that she deserves!

By the time my third child leaves for junior high after the 2008-2009 school year my wife and i will have been involved with this school for 15 years. The staff has always been amazing. The level of commitment from the principal, teachers and all of the support staff is simply amazing. Great school!

This Is The Best school ever I started 7th grade last year (2007) and I was heartbroken that I had to leave my childhood memories with others to share. I had alot of friends that were teachers and we all had a blast. This is the #1 school to send your child to

This is by far one of the best schools my children have ever attended. The ladies in the office are so nice and always made me feel welcome every time I would go to the office. The principle and Asst principle are both wonderful, they are always walking the halls and are actually involved with students, parents and teaching staff. The teachers are just awesome! I have 3 children that went to Bell Manor and two of them had to be in resource classes and the resource teachers they had were great, my kids went from hating math and reading to loving it. This is an excellent school.

My child has had a great time at this school, the teachers are wonderful, and always call if there are any problems.

I have to agree witht he review from September 2004. I advised everyone involved with my child that she has difficulty adjusting and has some emotional challenges. The information was not communicated, and she has been basically isolated from her classmates for most of her two years there. Additionally, there is not one on one assistance provided in areas that present academic challenges.

This school has been a huge disappointment. If you fall in line and don t complain you won t have any problems but try to explain that your child needs extra attention because they are gifted or have learning issues, then be ready for administrative difficulties, resistance and the implications that you are the problem and not them. This is clearly from the top on down. If you have expections you will be disappointed, if you don't you will just fine. There are a few great teachers if you're lucky to get them.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
