I loved everything about Bell County Schools. You never felt out of place because everyone made you feel like you belong. Teachers and administrators always encouraged us to see our full potential, and they never failed to push us to do our best. Everyone was just friends with everyone! They gave me twelve wonderful years, filled with unforgettable memories! (:

Bell County Public schools were conveniently placed in easy-to-get-around areas, and built to last. The teachers/faculty are respectful, loving, and caring as if they are your own family. They tend to set you for high standards and expect no less but your best. From a child to a graduate I’ve been blessed to attend this school system and will encourage my children to attend their as well!
Bell County High School, it is not a good as it used to be. I’m an alumni of the school and I believe it is a school system that is failing; it’s also failing generations of students. The faculty take very little effort to help the school, they are more concerned about the money values in their pockets. They don’t use money to help improve the school for the students and they don’t successfully prepare them for college either.
