    Bells Mill School offers a warm and welcoming environment where children are taught by enthusiastic and caring teachers. My granddaughter entered Bells Mill School two months before the end of the last school year a difficult time to make a transition. Her teacher was kind and understanding and went out of her way to make my granddaughter feel right at home. This year as she began first grade my granddaughter could not wait to get to school! Every day she hurries across the parking lot to be among the first students to arrive. She never wants to miss a moment with her teachers and classmates. Bells Mill is technologically advanced compared with other schools in our area. They offer a curriculum which in my granddaughter's words is "not too difficult but never boring. There is always something new to learn and it is always fresh!" What more can anyone hope to find in an elementary school? Friendly teachers exciting lessons lovely children caring families Bells Mill has it all! I am indeed a grateful taxpayer!

    We just moved to the area. the school is amazing and our kindergartner was very happy all year round. We were not expecting our child to improve the way she did at Bells Mill in terms of reading math...etc. They teach the kids to be ahead and they have a great math and science curriculum. Top class school!!!
