My experience at Bells High School was over 10 years ago, however, my 4 years with just the high school were nothing short of amazing! After attending K-8th grade at Bells, entering into high school was the highlight of my life as I got to see and be apart of so much. The academics on and off the sports fields met every standard for my life looking back over time. I'm very proud to say I graduated from such a wonderful school and anything I thought needed improvement years ago has been implemented to only make it the best!

Living in a small school district and attending the school where my mom has taught for 35 years has been like a family to us. My mom was even my Kindergarten teacher! How many of my 60 graduating classmates can say that??
We are a small community built around so much love and support for everyone.
We know in our hearts with everything going on in our world today that even if we can't finish the year, our Administration will somehow make it where our Class of 2020 will be able to walk the stage for graduation with our families cheering us on because we are Class of 2020 Strong!!!!!
My time at Bells High School was definitely a journey, all the way from watching our small town bring home two state championship trophies and also having the best community behind our back was amazing. The schools all were very well kept up and all in all the whole staff is people that parents would appreciate to have around they're kids. They are caring, and are always here to help and not with just school work, with anything they have always been there for the students, with this school, the students have always come first. I have cherished my time here at Bells and I know the other kids have and will as well.
