    My three kids go to Bells and all three are doing great. Teachers as well as principals are always on top of things.

  • (9 years ago)

    My child has attended Bells since Kindergarten and is now in fifth grade. All in all it is a good school and he has done well. The classes are small the principal involves herself with and knows what's going on with the individual students. They do have art and music some computer work and sports.

    Great special education department. The teachers seem to really care.

  • (10 years ago)

    Just started band. Music is on the back burner eventhough the music teacher is a dedicated teacher. Sports programs available.
