The students at Bells High School are defiently blessed with the best teachers around! The teachers are caring, creative, knowledgable, and positive. Each and every teacher leaves an amazing impression on students not only because they are great at what they do but also because they are great people too! They will go out of their way day after day making sure students get an A, they come before and after school and always gives up their breaks to give you whatever it takes, they'll give you their number to send your questions to, and they'll help sponsor you. The teachers are family here at Bells High School.
Although Bells students may get stressed out from daily workloads of homework, it is totally do-able and keeps you on track. Plus we have a daily advisory worked into our schedule so we can work on homework and if needed, go ask teachers for help. Every teacher has been willing to help before, during, and after school as needed. Here at Bells you have every tool you need to succeed!
