I love the way nobody ever feels out of place. Administration and staff never fails to ensure that every student feels involved, whether it be in academics or sports. There’s no other place I’d rather have spent my high school career; I wouldn’t change a thing!

Bell County High school is an excellent school! When I have children of my own, there wouldn’t be another school I would send them to. Amazing teachers and such a great environment!
Bell High is a good school to grow up in and was the best decision my parent have ever made. Every student knows each other and bullying isn't a prominent problem. Academics and Athletics hold the same power and i think thats great! We enjoy studying during the week, but ending it with our "Pride" chant on friday nights with coach Dudley Hilton. Bobcat Pride!
