    Love Bell School. The students teachers and staff are awesome. This is a community not just a school.

    CC Bell Elementary is without a doubt the most 'on the cutting edge' school that we've seen so far. Many of the staff have National Board Certification and are continuing to participate in all types of staff training in Reading Math and written communication. This school is child-centered and displays a variety of projects the children have made as well as the beautification of 2 courtyard areas The children really do feel ownership of their school along with the support from the parents the community and everyone who works here. Drop by sometime and see the wonderful things the children are doing. Don't let the small size of the school fool you as 'good things come in small packages!'

    We love Bell Elementary! My daughter wasn't happy in her old private school and we felt she wasn't getting the education she deserved. Now she's happy and excelling. We credit the teachers and administration of Charles C. Bell! Hooray for Public Schools!
