At Bell High School I really enjoy how many opportunities that they offer when it comes to clubs, sports and academic classes. Bell High School offers many interesting clubs that are useful to students and as well as classes that allow students to challenge themselves and help them become prepared for college. Although, at Bell High School I find it difficult for students to participate in multiple clubs and activities due to how they are scheduled. If these activities would be scheduled more properly students would be able to participate in many activities that interest them.

I am going to enter junior year and I am very excited. I am in cheer and have been since freshman. They’re promotion for college and universities is very good. They have a college center with all resources provide for any question and offer field trips to go and view possible schools. Their academics are good and teachers also offer to to help when needed. Their performing arts is taken very serious and promote joining in their programs. I am in the Avid program and it gives us a variety of options and prepares us to begin applying for financial aid or scholarships. Avid is able to give us information that we need and they even encourage us to do community service every semester. Their diversity is very good, and they have majority of Hispanics, Mexicans, etc.
Bell High School offered me so many opportunities and friendships that I thought I would never have. Through trying out for the tennis team to attending American Red Cross meetings, this school has so much to offer. There were many great things about Bell, the school provides great role models, administrators, teachers, diversity and so much more. I can not emphasize how much the school incorporates extracurriculars and sports as well as the arts, making every student feel included and involved. However, the only dislike in the school is possibly the food and maybe to include more diversity meaning from a farther range than Arabs and Mexicans.
