Bell High School Reviews

The staff at this campus are always very kind and helpful no matter the situation. I feel that this school has great programs and great teachers who truly care about their students and it really shows. I have always been able to receive aid on homework or just simply reviewing and understanding classroom material with my teachers because they always do their best to be available for their students which I believe is just amazing. The administration is always very in control of any and every situation and students have high regard for them so that is also very helpful. The IB program is probably the best thing about this school since your teachers are always just so understanding of how rigorous the program is and they work with their students to find do-able and reasonable assignments and due dates. The reason this school doesn't get the full 5 stars is probably because of how out-dated the actual campus is, it's quite old and quite frankly I think it could truly use a few fixes.

Bell High School provides students of all calibers with opportunities to fully achieve their potential. There are many clubs, sports teams and after school activities that not only provide needed experience to the students but also allows them to get involved with their community. Bell High School also provides students with opportunities to take rigorous course work such as advanced placement and Ib courses to further help students prepare for college. Overall attending Bell High School is an amazing experience that has granted me opportunities that I would not have had otherwise while enhancing my work ethic.
Bell had many amazing opportunities for students! Bell gives students the opportunity to have IB, AP, and dual classes all to benefit them going into college. Another opportunity is to start studying in a certain area you are wanting to pursue after high school such as electives that benefit towards their knowledge for the subject of choice and on top of that we have an amazing tech center with exquisite classes to help with the process. Bell has amazing fine arts and athletics programs giving students an opportunity of a life time doing what they love. Also there are so many school clubs to join of students own interests. Another thing bell had is amazing administration who are always helpful and great at their job. They are able to find time to help students and do other paper work making sure students are a priority.
